Van Halen Jump To The Top

(Classic Rock) Van Halen's only Billboard number-one single, Jump, has topped a poll of the world's best sporting songs, ahead of the Olympic Games in London.

Music rights body PRS For Music held a vote among its members to mark the London Olympics. The resulting top 20 also includes the Rolling Stones, Hawkwind, Queen, the Beatles, Survivor, Tina Turner and Journey.

PRS boss Guy Fletcher says: "Music plays such a classic role for both the spectator and participant. As a Brit I would have to vote for Spaundau Ballet's Gold I think we might get a few of those, fingers crossed."
