Which 3 English bands would you save?


This was a mental exercise so fraught with peril and judgement, I’ve decided to post my response here instead.

A selection of English bands.

Brace yourself, mine are, without reservation:

  • The Beatles
  • Fleetwood Mac
  • Pet Shop Boys
  • Dire Straits

I count from zero because I work with computers. That’s legit, right?

Note the question was specifically which you’d save, not which you think are the best. These bands were the soundtrack to my childhood, and I still love them today. There are also some others I’d sorely miss. Don’t judge me… but I know you still will.
