 Here are some examples of fanciful, imaginative music by Stackridge, a great band who had many wonderful, melodic songs full of clever and amusing stories on their various albums.  Personally, I have a penchant for witty, very English music with a hint of good old-fashioned eccentricity, you really can't go wrong!  The first selection is 'Pinafore Days':

and here is 'The Galloping Gaucho':

Both were from the album 'The Man In the Bowler Hat' a fine album produced by George Martin.
Here they are going retro again, perhaps a 1920s mood, with this performance of 'Dancing On Air, on the Old Grey Whistle Test: 

'Anyone For Tennis'?
