Songs About London


Recommended Posts

I thought I'd turn to the Shed Enders for a little help regarding musical matters - I'm making a CD with songs purely about London on it, and I'm stuck. I've done a search and there are hundreds. I only want about 18/20, so I was wondering if you guys know any songs that you like that I could include. So far I've got:

1. Streets of London

2. Waterloo Sunset

3. London Calling

:rolleyes: Which isn't a lot.

(PS- not including Baker Street as that reminds me of The Simpsons too much and not London!)

Thank you :D

Gem - I'm OLD - to me pop means anything that isn't classical or traditional! I was young when the Kinks started and we definitely considered them to be pop in those days. But I take your point and will keep adding to the list as and when songs "pop" into my head!
