britflag.JPGWe hope you’ve been enjoying the first week of the games and some of the music we highlighted in Part I of our “Pandora Guide to the 2012 London Olympics”. To keep you fueled until the Closing Ceremony we’re providing you with another round of U.K.-inspired musical suggestions to use as seeds for some great Pandora listening.

The Closing Ceremony concert features a “The Best of British” lineup with several classic artists from across the decades. Try adding variety to your Olympic-inspired stations by adding these bands that span various decades:

What comes to mind when you think of music from across the pond? Try starting stations with a few of the following iconic Brits and hear some of the songs that have defined a number of eras in UK music and influenced artists across the world. What are some of your favorite acts from the U.K.?

And finally, why not check out our genre stations that spotlight the musical heritage of the U.K. from the 60’s to the present? Almost 50 years ago, The Beatles stepped off a plane in the U.S. for the first time and ushered in the British Invasion. Then, in the 90s, when Grunge was exploding in the U.S., British Alternative Rock emerged as Britpop.

Have fun watching the remainder of the Olympics and enjoy creating your new Olympic fever Pandora stations!

    I'd just like to compliment your team and company for the Pandora concept. Now I leave Pandora on in the background instead of inane TV while in my home whether relaxing, working, or cleaning! I even keep Pandora in my ear when traveling instead of the car radio because every song is MY song. So, I guess one could say Pandora has made a meaningful change in my lifestyle, thus a growth change in my life because MUSIC will always trump TV in my world. I can't recommend Pandora often enough to everyone in my world, even the ADHD university students I coach. Kudos to your developers and staff. Greatest concept since sliced bread!

    Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's tough to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and appearance. I must say you've done a amazing job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Chrome. Superb Blog!

    Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.
