Danny Boyle's playlist for the opening ceremony to the London 2012 Olympic Games has reportedly been leaked.

The longlist of 86 tracks was apparently revealed to be included in the director's planned event to open the games next month.

Queen, The Sex Pistols, Dizzee Rascal and The Beatles are just some of the artists used to celebrate the best of British music.

The pop and rock music will be joined by classical music and hymns, as well as themes to shows such as EastEnders and Doctor Who.

The leak reportedly came from a "music industry source", while an Olympics spokesman would not confirm the accuracy of the list, reports The Sun.

The likes of Sir Cliff Richard, Bee Gees, Spice Girls, Tom Jones and Elton John are among the artists not to feature in the playlist.

Boyle's 'countryside' themed opening ceremony model was unveiled to the public last week.

The 50-minute pre-show starts July 27 at 8.12pm and the ceremony kicks off properly at 9pm with the ringing of a massive bell.
