2007: Rule The World By Take That

Composed and recorded by British pop group Take That for the soundtrack of the film Stardust. This was the first song that Take That had written specifically for a film. The director of the film (Matthew Vaughan) included the song in the end credits of Stardust but it did not feature on the soundtrack. The song was included on the deluxe version of Take That’s fourth studio album Beautiful World, which was their first album in eleven years. The group performed the song at the London 2012 Olympic Games Closing Ceremony whilst the Olympic Flame was being extinguished. It was also perfomed at a charity event in 2009, organised by Gary Barlow of Take That, for the BBC Television charity Children in Need. The event was called Children in Need Rocks the Royal Albert Hall. The song was submitted for consideration at the 80th Academy Film Awards for Best Original Song but was not nominated. Genre: Pop Rock.

Classical crossover singer Camilla Kerslake recorded the song for her debut album, with the song re-titled as Il Mondo è Nostro, The World Is Ours. Camilla-Kerslake/Il-Mondo-e-Nostro.
