Is it just me or was there a lot of British music @ our 4th of July fireworks show this year?

I watched the 4th of July fireworks from the balcony of my friend Felicity’s place this year. She has a place above Westlake with a clear, unobstructed view of Lake Union. Every year thousands of people pack Gasworks Park for a picnic spot (and then brave traffic afterwards).
 
Fortunately I was able to walk over, thus avoiding the problems with traffic, parking, etc.
 
In any case, I thought the fireworks show was excellent. Nothing really great or new I guess. The smiley face fireworks are always a hit. The music selection is what surprised me the most. There was only a single patriotic song during the whole show, and that was at the finale. The rest of the show (which lasted just over half an hour) we were serenaded by a variety of music, but how often a British act (U2, Depeche Mode) came up surprised me.
 
I mean, it’s not like I hate the British, but really, couldn’t they have at least played American music during the 4th of July event?
 
It’s kind of like how Hillary Clinton picked a song by a Canadian singer to be her theme song for her run for the presidency. Strange.

    Ok it\’s kind of embarrassing, but my friend Dory IM\’d me and said "You know that U2 isn\’t British." And I said, "Yeah well maybe I should have said "UK" but you know what I mean." I mean, I\’m no dummy. I know the difference between Britain and the U.K.
     
    Then Dory says "But U2 are from Ireland."
     
    And I said "Oh. Shit."
     
    But you know what I meant, right?
