A “Coronation songlist” list has been published spotlighting music to be played in celebration of King Charles III‘s May 6th Coronation at London’s Westminster Abbey. Loudersound reported The Department for Culture, Media and Sport unveiled the list — which will not be played during the actual investiture — featuring songs by the Beatles, the Who, the Kinks, ELO, Tom Jones, David Bowie, Queen, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles, Spice Girls, Jeff Beck & Rod Stewart, Kate Bush, Madness, and Spandau Ballet, among others.

Back in 2018, Ringo Starr followed Paul McCartney in becoming the second of the Beatles to be knighted. The BBC asked Ringo if receiving the ultimate Royal honor from then-Prince Charles lived up to expectations: “Well, it means a lot, actually. It means recognition for things we’ve done, musically and in life. So, I was really pleased to accept this award. . . It all started in Liverpool. And last week, Paul and I had dinner in L.A. together and we were talking about from Liverpool to here. Y’know, it’s like, mad.”
