Except for the songs that made my Top 20 songs of 2005 and the representative tracks from my Top 20 Albums of 2005, these are the rest of the best Brit and Brit-sounding pop/rock tracks of 2005, volume one. To be eligible, a song needed to be included on an album released in the United States between December 1, 2004 and November 30, 2005. Note: Some of the artists on here aren’t British, but they sound like it.
