London 2012 Olympics Playlist Leaks

British director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire) was tasked with picking a playlist for the upcoming Olympic opening ceremony in London, and his 86-track playlist has leaked online, according to The Telegraph. Notable: It’s probably a deliberate choice that members of the Queen’s Jubilee Court — knighted folks like Elton John and Paul McCartney — were left off. Though it hasn’t been officially confirmed, the playlist doesn’t jive with a certain Spice Girl. “We literally flew the flag — and Geri even wore it — around the globe,” Mel C, AKA Sporty Spice, told The Mirror. She’s got a point. Check out the full playlist below.
