Nice idea for a thread. Choosing one from England was tough, hard to leave out Floyd, Zeppelin, Stones...

England: Codex - Radiohead

France: Talisman - Air

Wales: Myfanwy - Treorchy Male Choir

Italy: Un Bel di Vedremo - Puccini

Scotland (cheating a bit): Riff Raff - AC/DC

They still play a lot around the festivals in Ireland.

That was back when we made good music before Louis Walsh turned us into boyband country.

Here is another from that era you might like Sam

Great idea. Some of my choices are influenced by experiences rather than being my absolute favourite music.



France - Daft punk - Get lucky. Almost by default (sorry).
Italy - Paverotti - Nessun Dorma (I saw Turandot in Verona and even though I don't like opera, it made my hair stand on end).
Scotland - Inside by Stiltskin (nearly went with something by Big Country)
Ireland - Almost anything by Enya so lets say "Only Time" but it really could be almost anything.
Wales - Delilah by Tom Jones (a mate took us all to see him in Las Vegas the night before his wedding almost 20 years ago)
England - Cloudbusting by Kate Bush. Just perfect. A genius at her absolute peak.
