From The Beatles and The Kinks to Radiohead and David Gray, the breadth and variety of British songwriting since the 1950s is breathtaking, with countless bands and artists forging styles that are unique and individual, yet still capable of capturing a certain quintessential 'Britishness'. A great song can harness the spirit of its times, and each new band or solo artist adds their own personal voice to the legacy, documenting the next chapter in the British way of life.
This celebratory songbook brings together all those poignant, nostalgic or fun-filled moments of British pop that have grown to characterise a time or event of historical and social significance. Every era is covered, from the opulent swinging sixties, through the recession-inspired punks of the 1970s and the subsequent New Wave and right up to the multi-cultural sounds of post-Britpop Britain.
With over 170 songs on offer, your guaranteed to find some timeless favourites, a few new discoveries, and even one or two classics you'd otherwise forgotten about! Nothing has been missed - there's the daft comedy of The Funky Gibbon, the sly inner-city paranoia of Ghost Town, Nick Drake's Cotswold delicacy, and the old-time pub singalong My Old Man's A Dustman. Each song has been presented with melody line, lyrics and chords, and the 368 pages are punctuated with some great photographs of the artists at the peak of their success.
