(Dragon) Slaying Tunes: Happy St. George's Day

Forever in the shadow of the almighty drinkathon that is St. Patrick's, St. George's Day is nonetheless a day for us English folk to reflect on all we have and celebrate the finer of those things. Along with Sunday roasts and morning tea, our music surely ranks high on the list of proud exports.

So here, with little rhyme or reason other than their nation of origin, are a bunch of jolly free English tunes. These will be added to as and when I come across new ones that fit the criterion. Sit back, sink a Bombardier, and enjoy.
