    I'm trying to compile a playlist of Patriotic British songs. Songs that are really, quintessentially British. So far I have

    1. God Save The Queen
    2. Land of Hope and Glory
    3. Rule Britannia
    4. I Vow To Thee, My Country
    5. It's a Long Way To Tipperary
    6. Keep The Home Fires Burning
    7. There Will Always Be An England
    8. There'll Be Blue Birds Over The White Cliffs of Dover


    So, if you've got any to add it would be much appreciated

    Or the whole of The Resistance. Ahaha.

    And anglocentricity is a bad thing? (if that's even a word)
    I wouldn't say it is a bad thing, just that 'Britishness' isn't felt as strongly in the other constituent countries and that's why most songs are more England centric as it's the English who identify more so with being British than the others IMO. That's going on to a whole other kettle of fish though.

    13. Knightsbridge
    14. Orb and Sceptre
    15. Crown Imperial
    Italicised are Orchestral
    16. I was Glad
    17. Zadok the Priest (The champions league theme is a rip off of this) - We are a Christian country after all, these are played at most coronations

    To include British as including the rest of Great Britain as opposed to the anglocentric view
    17. O Flower of Scotland
    18. Auld Lang Syne
    19. Scotland the Brave
