What theme should Sky use in place of “The Chain”?

In today’s round-up, Keith posted the following Tweet from Jake Humphreys:
“You’ll love our new opening titles this year. The Chain remains (obviously!) but the pictures change. We’ve done what many asked for…”
Assuming that Sky cannot, does not or will not use The Chain for their Formula 1 coverage, what music track should they use?
Personally, my vote goes to Janelle Monáe’s Cold War:
Though as an Australian, we don’t actually get intro music aside for generic FOM titles.28th January 2012, 7:40 at 7:40 am #191291Stephen JonesParticipant
is she.. naked?
this isn’t the equivalent of the chain, but if SKY (or BBC!) doesn’t use this song for the season intro montage, i will cry..

No, she isn’t. She wore a strapless dress for the video. Do you think I would have posted it without watching it first?28th January 2012, 8:11 at 8:11 am #19129328th January 2012, 11:12 at 11:12 am #191294Stephen JonesParticipant

“Ajare” by Way out West. As used by ITV in their 1997 end-of-season review:
(If anyone spots that 1997 ITV F1 montage, do post it below, it’s very good.)28th January 2012, 12:15 at 12:15 pm #191296IcthyesParticipant
I really hope they don’t go down the techno-dancey route. Equally, there’s a risk of some artsy offering like the Just Drive song for the BBC’s 2010 season montage, or something plain bland like the Kasabian one they used.
The fastest circuit racing in the world, action (hopefully), drama (inevitable), the music should reflect that. Something fast and hard (remember Favourite Game from the 1998 ITV montage?). The intro the F1 2011 (the game) is a good example of this; I thought it was the Foo Fighters at first, so why not them:28th January 2012, 12:19 at 12:19 pm #191297IcthyesParticipant

Sonate L33 (or K87) by Scarlatti, played by Pogorelich. Couldn’t find a link. Only Horowitz, but that’s like an elephant, compared to Pogorelich.
Would be a bit of a contrast that, but I think I don’t know anything more beautiful.28th January 2012, 17:15 at 5:15 pm #191299jonnyw360f1Participant28th January 2012, 17:54 at 5:54 pm #191300raymondu999Participant
Why not “Make a Move on Me,” as fittingly shown in this video?28th January 2012, 18:02 at 6:02 pm #19130128th January 2012, 18:13 at 6:13 pm #191302thescottwilkesMember
@jonnyw360f1 NO THEY CANNOT!
Not that I can watch it on SKY but Running Down A Dream by Tom Petty would make a brilliant theme tune to any racing series.
YouTube it and experience the majesty.28th January 2012, 18:58 at 6:58 pm #19130328th January 2012, 20:41 at 8:41 pm #191304matt90Participant
If I had a sky subscription and they used MCR (new stuff at least) or Coldplay I’d refuse to watch on principle.
It should be something rock though I think, fast paced and somewhat heavy.
