Odell's sweary hit on PM's playlist

Tom Odell has turned the airwaves blue with his hit Another Love, after it featured on a compilation album given to G8 leaders.

Tracks by Mercury Prize winners Alt-J, Jake Bugg and Rudimental were included on a USB stick of 10 songs, which David Cameron gave as a gift to G8 leaders, including US president Barack Obama, Russia's Vladimir Putin and chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany at the gathering in Northern Ireland in June.

The song by the Brit-winning singer, which was a top 10 hit earlier this year, is marked "explicit" on digital music site Spotify and includes the lyrics: "So I'll use my voice, I'll be so f****** rude, Words they always win, but I know I'll lose."

Answering a freedom of information request, the Prime Minister's office said the playlist was put together by industry group the BPI and described it as "a bespoke creation for the leaders" that was not "available for reproduction", although the playlist is on Spotify.

The Prime Minister's love of pop music is well-documented and only last month he joked that he had been forced to find a new band to listen to after Morrissey and Johnny Marr forbade him from listening to The Smiths.

Mr Cameron has often talked about his love of the 1980s indie band, but its songwriting duo have been embarrassed by his mentions of them and told him to stop.

In 2006, he was revealed as a secret fan of Benny Hill's comic creation Ernie, The Fastest Milkman In The West, when he chose the 1971 hit as one of his eight favourite records on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs.
