RE: Why do so many Americans love the British accent?

I like British accents. It reminds me of The Beatles, Harry Potter, James Bond, Doctor Who, etc. It just sounds cool. I wish I had it.

It depends on the accent.
As George Bernard Shaw wrote: “It is impossible for an Englishman to open his mouth without making some other Englishman hate or despise him.”

With an English public school accent, one commands respect and natural authority from all sections of society, whereas, with say a Liverpool or Newcastle accent, that unfortunately is taken as one who is uneducated and very much working class.
