Orbital - Orbital Reworks Ian Dury's Spasticus Autisticus For Paralympics
Dance music duo Orbital teamed up with science boffin Stephen Hawking to revamp Ian Dury's classic Spasticus Autisticus for the opening of the 2012 Paralympics in London.
The Hartnoll brothers performed their version of the controversial 1981 track Dury wrote for the International Year of Disabled Persons at the opening ceremony of the Games at the Olympic Stadium in London.
Their version features a sample of disabled A Brief History of Time author Hawking's voice.
The professor opened the spectacular with a simulation of the big bang.
British singer Birdy and Beverley Knight also performed at the opening ceremony, while Coldplay are scheduled to close the Games on 9 September (12).
