Official playlist of the Coronation of Charles III: the list with all the songs
Sir Elton John, a friend of the late Princess Diana who performed at her funeral, will be the great absentee from a celebration featuring Harry Styles and the Beatles, among others.
host a great coronation concert and other iconic places in the United Kingdom will be lit up with projections, lasers, drones, and other light shows. After the period of mourning that protocol mandates to be observed in the months following the death of a sovereign, during the accession to the throne, it is now time for celebrations, which in this case will be to the beat of Harry Styles and the Beatles, but without the iconic Sir Elton John, a great friend of the late Lady Diana, who did perform at her funeral.
The concert will bring together the music of great icons and contemporary stars on the Windsor grounds on the night of May 7, and the government has declared Monday a holiday so that everyone can enjoy it. A world-class orchestra will perform favorite songs by some of the world’s most important artists, predominantly British, and other dancers and performers will join them to entertain the ten thousand in attendance and all those who follow it on television, radio, or the internet.
On the British government’s website created for the coronation, the Spotify playlist for the event is already available. At first, it had one more track by rapper Dizzee Rascal, which was removed because he was convicted last year of assaulting his ex-partner.
The playlist, which lasts about two hours, is called the Coronation Celebration Playlist and features The Beatles’ “Come Together” and Boney M’s “Daddy Cool” as its opening tracks. It will also include music from Coldplay (“A Sky Full of Stars”), David Bowie (“Let’s Dance”), Ed Sheeran (“Celestial”), Elbow (“One Day Like This”), Electric Light Orchestra (“Mr. Blue Sky”), Ellie Goulding (“Starry Eyed”), Emeli Sandé (“Starlight”), George Ezra (“Dance All Over Me”), Grace Jones (“Slave to the Rhythm - Hot Blooded Version”), Kate Bush (“Running Up That Hill”), Madness (“Our House”), Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart (“People Get Ready”), Sam Ryder (“Spaceman”), Spandau Ballet (“Gold”), The Kinks (“Waterloo Sunset”), and Years & Years (“King”).
The main acts will include songs from Harry Styles (“Treat People With Kindness”), Michael Bublé (“It’s a Beautiful Day”), Pet Shop Boys (“All Over the World”), Queen (“We Are the Champions”), Spice Girls (“Say You’ll Be There”), Take That (“Shine”), and Tom Jones (“Green Green Grass of Home”).
