"London", calling...

Post by Dawg » Sun Mar 25, 2007 8:34 pm

Hey folks - I'm trying to put together a specific mix tape for a little project, and I'd like them to be songs that mention London somewhere in the lyrics.

So far I only have two "London Calling" (of course) and "Panic" by The Smiths.

Help a fella out, if you can!

to those excellent choices I'll throw in:
"Get Out Of London" Interferon, an awesome WLIR song from back in the day

Id go for London by the Smiths if you can only have one song per artist (Anthrax also covers it somewhere), if you can have 2 then London's Burning by the Clash
Hairdresser on Fire by Morrissey..
Also if ya wanna go lame theres Fergie, but then again you want music right so nevermind
