I have been wondering why is it that when British people sing, it's in American accent. I personally never heard a British singer sing in British accent, and I would love to hear one! Can British speak in the American accent if they wanted too, or is it just when they sing?

Hope you can clarify some of these confusions. Thank you.

Blur, Oasis and The Beatles. There are a b'zillion more examples.

Jacko, pray no more British people see this post! hehe

Is it offensive? If it is, I didn't really mean to.

AAAARRRGGGGG!

I didn't read this post!
Did Elton John sing with an American accent?
Not at all! He never has and never will! Only actors/actresses are REALLY able to switch accents as they are professionally trained to do so.

Can you speak with an American accent or an Italian accent?
Me? I couldn't if I tried. I'd make a real fool of myself! Anyway why would I want to speak like a 'Yankee'?
because you would sound so funny!
