It’s the UK’s answer to ‘Moves Like Jagger’, courtesy of The Script and will.i.am


When two coaches from The Voice USA teamed up on a song last summer, it hit No1 in 24 official charts around the world and became the 2nd biggest-selling single of 2011 in the UK. So it was only really a matter of time before two panellists from the UK version followed suit… and it would appear that our answer to ‘Moves Like Jagger’ is ‘Hall Of Fame’, from The Script featuring will.i.am.

The Script have done well to sell a gajillion records considering neither rock nor pop purists consider it ‘cool’ to be out-and-proud fans; but we’ve always had a soft spot for them, and ‘Hall Of Fame’ is a decent, Olympic-friendly anthem. If we’re being completely honest, it’s not making us want to put our hands in the air and wail along at top volume in quite the same way that ‘Breakeven’ and ‘For The First Time’ did, but perhaps – like ‘Moves Like Jagger’ – all it needs is a little time to settle in to our consciousness before becoming another amazing chart-botherer for their collection.
