There And Back Again: A Series Of Traveling Playlists: Part 2

Having now lived in London for upwards of two months, I can almost claim to partially understand maybe some of the innumerable peculiarities of British people.  They drive on the wrong side of the road on the wrong side of the car, put milk in their tea, and are “subjects” of the Queen, rather than “citizens.” You may live in the city of London but not The City Of London.   Don’t call a Scot British, don’t ever try to walk on a moving double-decker bus, and above all else, don’t ever speak poorly of The Beatles.

The playlist I’ve compiled blends the best of British past and present. Enjoy with a side of clotted cream and a pint of Fuller’s.
