22 Grand Job in the top twenty, London Calling nowhere. Yeah, that makes sense.
The whole thing. Everyone knows London Calling (and they mention it quite a bit) so it's nice they had a few rarer ones in there. And 22 Grand Job is a very good London song despite it being quite irritating.
Most of the Rakes album being in there if 22 Grand Job is. The whole thing reminds me of the time I moved down here back in June.
aside from the reference to clapham, i wouldn't have had 'up the junction' down as a song about london.
some of the shit that's made it in
Squeeze are all from london, most of their songs are influenced by london, and they rule (until they went dodgey 80's, but Tillbrook's still alright)
i'm not saying squeeze shouldn't be in, i'm just questioning why that particular song did considering it's not actually ABOUT london (as are probably several other songs on the list but i can't be arsed going thru them all with a fine tooth comb).
Didn't know that...
by red house painters is the best song to mention london although I guess its not really about london but yeah anyway katy song
For making top 20 in a meaningless compilation
if you just get the list from a forum and look at it like that it looks so but reading the actual commentary and seeing the lay-out in the magazine I think it was a good, well thought-out piece. They could have done it as a big ten page article and not had any numbering but lists are sadly more attention grabbing for most people.
though. I thought he'd be in there with a song as well. Oh well.
TIME OUT ARE WANKERS.
Noonday Underground - London
should be there twice.
I love that song.
so we can stop the stupid habbit of compiling best ever lists?
the streets were from birmingham?
for all the good it did
and shit like that. It's a grower - the first time John Kennedy played it I thought it was fucking gash, but now I think it's great.
I shall do my best to avoid it. Which shouldn't be hard, as without trying I've managed to avoid it so far...
London Calling should certainly be there.
Perhaps some Libertines too? I've always thought of them as being a London band. Up The Bracket mentions Cally Road and Vallance Road.
I've just got that! I always thought he was singing 'Cowley Road', and didn't understand why they'd be singing about Oxford!
Loads of Libs songs have London references.
This is a pretty ace list of London songs, if anyone doesn't know about it already. .. .
that was what he was singing. You NEVER listen to me. NEVER.
the Estonian 'Happy Birthday' song is sung to the exact same tune as 'The Lambeth Walk' - even the 'Oi!' at the end sung as 'Hey!'
Lord knows how that happened
