An alleged "Olympic Playlist" of 86 songs that will soundtrack the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Games has been leaked, and it’s a pretty eclectic list of artists.
The playlist, which Olympic officials will not confirm is authentic, was published by U.K. tabloid The Sun, and is said to be the music that Danny Boyle, the Oscar-winning director of Slumdog Millionaire, has chosen to soundtrack the kickoff to the Olympic Games next month, which he is overseeing.
The song list includes tracks from every era of British music, including British patriotic songs and hymns from the early 1900s, all the way up to the latest chart hits. Muse’s “Map of the Problematique” and “Uprising” are on there, as is “God Save the Queen” and “Pretty Vacant” by The Sex Pistols, as well as "Viva La Vida" by Coldplay. In addition, songs by Blur, Radiohead, Oasis and Led Zeppelin can be found on the list.
Asked to about the accuracy of the list, an Olympics spokeswoman told The Sun, “There is endless speculation about the content of the show -- much is simply guesswork -- and we are keeping the rest of the show under wraps.”
