As you mentioned those contentious lists of Best American and/or British Songs recently, as voted by radio listeners or magazine readers, I wondered what you’d choose.
20 songs by UK acts and 20 from the USA, if you can, please. The more variety, the better, so do overlook the various members of Pink Floyd, if you so wish.

And on this day in 1963, The Beatles had one of many UK Number Ones with ‘I Want to Hold Your Hand’.
Would you include either of these fine tunes?
