Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle is helming the £27m opening ceremony and a leaked document has revealed the musical soundtrack set to accompany the introductory spectacular.

Boyle is working with Underworld on the soundtrack with songs by contemporary names such as Tinie Tempah, Rizzle Kicks, Arctic Monkeys, Dizzee Rascal, Emeli Sande and Muse all set to feature. The classics on the 86 song set will be provided by The Jam, The Beatles, Queen, Happy Mondays, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd amongst many others.

Other acts featured on the huge playlist include tracks by The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Sugababes, David Bowie, M.I.A. and Adele's 'Rolling In The Deep'.

The Olympic Games kicks off on July 27th with Paul McCartney expected to perform and Blur marking the end of the Games with a huge concert in Hyde Park.
