The playlist for the London Olympics opening ceremony has reportedly been leaked.

Danny Boyle's 86 track playlist, featuring songs by the Sex Pistols and the EastEnders theme tune, is to be included in the director's planned event to open the Games next month, reports The Sun.

However, the newspaper, who got their hands on the list, said Olympic officials won’t confirm that the leaked playlist will be the musical accompaniment when the Olympic Games officially commence on 27 July.

The wide range of songs in the collection - from London Calling by The Clash to Land Of Hope And Glory -, have a patriotic feel and seem a perfect fit for the opening ceremony.

Listen to just some of the 86 songs in our Spotify playlist below and see the full list further down the page. Is there anything you think is missing?

Boyle recently revealed London 2012's opening ceremony will see the Olympic Stadium "transformed into the British countryside", with an opening scene dubbed 'Green and Pleasant'.

The Slumdog Millionaire director also cited Shakespeare's comedy The Tempest as inspiration behind the ceremony.
