The Midweek Hop - Being English

Three music videos on a theme...
(inspired by Desmond Carrington's 'The Music Goes Round')

This weeks theme is...Being English
Inspired by St George's Day

1. An English Country Garden by The Muppets

'English Country Garden' was popularised by Jimmie Rogers in 1962 reaching Number 5 but this version of the tune by Rowlf and Fozzie from 1977 is much better!

2. Britannia Rag by Winifred Atwell

'Britannia Rag' entered the chart on 9th January 1953 reaching Number 5.

3. The Village Green Preservation Society by The Kinks

'The Village Green Preservation Society' is from the album 'The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society' and was released as a single in America in 1968.
Happy listening!
