And you forgot the Who


The Brits have produced the best comedy in the world too!

Dmitry:
I don't agree they all have musical talent, but they have a popularity indeed.
I wondered too why so many pop music is from England. I think it is just suitable conditions (time, language, same minded people, mode).
Why the greatest operas were written in Italy and Germany?
