St George’s day classic English pop YouTube playlist

It is St George’s day tomorrow – the day when England fails to celebrate its patron saint. And with good reason too, for the fella never set foot in England (he was Turkish), is also the patron saint of half the blinkin planet and is famous for slaying something that never existed anyhow.

However working on the premise that every nation needs an excuse for a piss up tomorrow night we will we be celebrating St George’s Day with three quirky English pop bands, a DJ spinning the Smiths, Beatles and Pet Shop Boys and The Guardian’s Englishness correspondent Iain Aitch. If you are in London come and join us – details here.

If not crack open a Carling and fire up our St George’s day playlist. From Max Bygraves through to The Sex Pistols via Kate Bush and Vaughan Williams – they are all here.
