Down throughout the history of pop music, some truly British tracks by truly great British groups have brought me pleasure.....
Any I've well and truly missed?

Cousin Caterpillar

Did you know that he has great changes coming? One day he'll wake with wings.

A lovely song to play to your kids.

By the end of their short career you'd have no idea you were listening to the same band as at the start.

Spirit of Eden

Wonderful. It has a stripped down, glimmering beauty where the pauses are as essentail as the notes. Experimental and rich, mournful and uplifting by degree.

Eat your heart out Radiohead. These boys did it better and much earlier.

OK, we've had The Smiths three times, we've even had David Essex, but no mention of the King of Queens, Elton John (unless I'm going blind).

Every album up to 1976's Blue Moves has at least one peak of sparkling brilliance, with Bernie Taupin staking the strongest possible claim to a place in the lyricists' Hall of Fame.

Elton is an unusual singer, in that he uses two different vocal styles: the very English romantic/melancholic balladeer and the down-home Southern good ol' boy. Equally moving in both modes, he is unmatched in the depth of feeling he can apply to any material. Even the crap songs sound good.

Number one song: despite the enormous depth of competition, it can be only be "Candle in the Wind."

A very underrated group.
Swords of a thousand men:

Deep in the castle and back from the wars
Back with my lady and the fires burned tall
Hoorah went the men down below
All outside was the rain and snow
Hear their shout, hear their roar
They've probably had a barrel of ale and much, much more
Hoorah, Hoorah, Hoorah, Yea
Over the hill went the swords of a thousand men
