Radiohead Thom Yorke

Olympic anthem, Terry Gilliam

There is an article at about how Radiohead has been asked to pen the 2002 Olympic anthem. Here’s a bit:

Says Yorke: “We’re tempted, but there’s so much sponsorship and advertising involved, and I don’t want Radiohead associated with some cigarette brand that sponsors the Olympics.”

In the same interview Yorke says the dream soundtrack he would have loved to do would be for Terry Gilliam’s surreal classic, Brazil: “I would get down on my knees and beg Terry Gilliam to let us do the soundtrack to that movie.”
