The newspaper claims the playlist has been leaked by a ‘music industry source’, but also quotes an Olympic spokesperson who refused to confirm the accuracy of the soundtrack, saying: “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.”
If correct, songs such as ‘The Hindu Times‘ and ‘Wonderwall‘ by Oasis, The Beatles’ ‘Hey Jude‘ and ‘She Loves You‘, and the Sex Pistols’ classic anti-establishment anthem ‘God Save The Queen‘ will feature along side other eclectic pieces such as ‘Land Of Hope And Glory’, ‘Jerusalem’ and the Dambusters March.
Other bands included for the opening ceremony on July 27th according to the tabloid include Radiohead with ‘Creep‘, The Who, Led Zeppelin and The Jam.Just Published:
