Anyone got any plans for the Jooberlee?

I am going to hang an offensive banner off my property and would also like a suitable playlist to drown out any local garden/street parties. Suggestions on this thread welcome - I'll start with some of the more obvious contenders:

God Save the Queen - Sex Pistols

The Queen is Dead - The Smiths

Repeat (UK) - Manics

Excellent Manics inclusion. Always good to see.

I'd throw in Bob Vylan 'England's Ending' / 'I heard you want your country back'

Whilst not explicitly connected to the Royals, any excuse to play Up The Revolution by the Tansads is worth taking.

I think I'll just find a remote beach or mountain location to park the van and ignore the outside world.

It's the LDWA 100 miler (trans pennine), so prediction for the weekend....pain.

No doubt accompanied by the fabulous collection of totally superficial 80's music on my ipod. Won't repeat last years mistake of listening to the audio book of touching the void through the night. Inappropriate.

It was easy when one of them got hitched. Corresponded with May Day so celebrations. Went for a long walk in Atholl.

Inglan is a bitch - Linton Kwesi Johnson? For a 1980 anglo carribean perspective.

In reply to DerwentDiluted:

How about something by the composer popularly seen as the voice of a quintessentially English landscape, Ralph Vaughan Williams? What may be less well-known is that he was a committed socialist who refused a knighthood on at least one occasion and who once went so far as to say, "all right-minded people are communists." The last movement of the Sixth Symphony might work well, since any ascending larks appear to have been incinerated in a post-apocalypse wasteland.

Why doesn't anyone pronounce his name as "Ralf" ?

In reply to Hardonicus:

Let England Shake - PJ Harvey

How common. Everyone in the know knows it's pronounced RVW.
