Monday Morning Music: Billy Bragg, “English, Half English”

In honor of the Royal Wedding, here’s a track about the melting pot of English culture that I wish someone would record about the USA. Billy Bragg, adopting thick tongue-in-cheek English mannerisms, points out with a bit of wit and whimsy that England has already borrowed a lot of its culture from other parts of the world. Apologies if it’s not your cup of tea, but then again, tea is Chinese, innit?
