It's funny when you think about it.
You can find basketball and ice hockey in Britain, but they're nowhere near the major sports that they are in the United States.
So why do we Americans listen to so many British songs at our basketball and ice hockey games?
Think about it. Queen's "We Will Rock You." Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll Part Two." Blur's "Song 2." Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train."
You can hear these and other songs here.
This just demonstrates the huge musical shift that occurred in the early 1960s. In 1959, no one could predict that American sports fans would start listening to British songs during games.
Of course, this changed a few short years later...and not because of Acker Bilk.
