London Pride

A WW2 song [1941] by Noel Coward, so I guess you have to be seriously old [like 80] to understand/appreciate it

On my iPod...

Last train to London - ELO; Werewolves of London - Warren Zevon; London Lady - Stranglers; London, can you wait? - Gene; London Loves - Blur; Tower of London - XTC; Down to London - Joe Jackson; London can take it - Public Service Broadcasting. You could maybe include a couple of more obscure Kinks tracks: Denmark Street and Willesden Green. Billy Bentley by Ian Dury. There is also Billy Bragg's tribute to the A13 (gateway to the coast) "cos it starts down in Wapping" but it is about leaving london rather than London itself.
—Guest Keith Jackson
