Some of Britain's top up-and-coming musical acts are fearing the curse of Cameron after his playlist gift to world leaders was revealed.

At last month's G8 Conference, the Prime Minister gave a USB stick to the likes Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin and Angela Merkel, featuring a 10-song, 'Best of British' playlist.

Its contents have now been revealed, following a Freedom of Information Act request.

The playlist was compiled by the British Phonographic Industry, Downing Street said.

It includes tracks by Alt-J, Jake Bugg and Rudimental.

It is not known whether the leaders actually listened to the songs, but pundits pointed that one of them, Another Love, by Tom Odell, included the line 'I'll use my voice, I'll be so fucking rude'.

Cameron's claim to be a Smiths fan famously led to him being banned by Morrissey and Johnny Marr, while Gordon Brown once cringe-makingly claimed to listen to the Arctic Monkeys.
