From trailblazers to pop powerhouses, the list features the best of the best, providing the perfect soundtrack to get you through the long weekend.

The 100 tracks, listed in no particular order, were handpicked by experts at Apple’s headquarters, including editors and presenters from Apple Music Radio, who say they recognize “the stunning breadth of the music landscape” in the UK.

Apple Music Radio host Matt Wilkinson said: “This list proves that our diversity as a country is perhaps our greatest musical asset.

“These 100 songs literally go everywhere and cover everything: songs about denial, songs about deception, songs that POP! scream from the rooftops and force you to sing along at maximum volume.

“From the political battle cries of The Clash’s London Calling to the knowing genius of Lily Allen’s Smile to the sheer drama and power of Soul II Soul’s Back To Life, they go deeper than just being a playlist: these are the sounds that have got Inspiring millions and being the building blocks of British culture and art.”

Elton John, Queen, Annie Lennox to contemporary artists like One Direction, Girls Aloud and Adele have found a place in the playlist.

While late and great legends like Vera Lynn, Amy Winehouse, George Michael and Cilla Black add a bittersweet dose of nostalgia.

The Beatles are the only act to appear twice on the list.
