The UK's Daily Telegraph has revealed what appears to be Creative Director of the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony Danny Boyle's 86-song soundtrack for the event.

An interesting and eclectic selection of some of the best (and some of the more questionable) British music from over the years includes contemporary artists alongside classic artists such as The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and...Pink Floyd. The concluding track, Eclipse, from 1973's The Dark Side Of The Moon appears in the final segment, nestled between Abide With Me, and The End from The Beatles Abbey Road album.

You can read the full tracklisting at the Telegraph website. They do make it clear that "officials will not confirm that the playlist is the official soundtrack for the opening ceremony on July 27 but it appears to be a good indication of what to expect".
