Could there ever be a better time to unveil a 50-strong cavalcade of tunes that typify our unique British character, pay tribute to our Churchillian bulldog spirit and celebrate the rich heritage of this sceptred isle? Gathered here are the singalong songs that helped us ‘keep calm and carry on’ as the bombs rained down - Bless ‘Em All, Sing As We Go, There’ll Always Be An England and more ... comic gems poking gentle fun at our inimitable fancies and foibles, such as Messing About On The River and Football Crazy ... and a whole string of rousing ‘chin-up’ songs that can still lift the heart and raise a smile.
