    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

    I suppose they're English songs and not British. I doubt a Scottish guy would be overly happy with your choices.

    Going by your 1984 layout I'd go with Citizen Erased too


    'British' songs as such appear to be seen as anglocentric nowadays.

    Or the whole of The Resistance. Ahaha.

    And anglocentricity is a bad thing? (if that's even a word)

    It's a Long Way To Tipperary
    A song about an Irishman, in London, saying his heart is in Tipperary, is patriotically British in what way?


    Goodbye, Piccadilly,
    Farewell, Leicester Square!
    It's a long long way to Tipperary,
    But my heart's right there.
