"England Swings" doesn't mention London but that is the setting:
"Westminster Abbey, the tower of Big Ben, the rosy red cheeks of the little children"

I got nothing.


"London Boys" by Johnny Thunders, the early punk equivalent of those East Coast-West Coast rap beefs, with the New York scene calling out UK punks. Though, considering the mix is for Mother's Day, I don't know if it exactly fits the mood.

Sorry if I mention stuff already here, I only bothered to read the first few posts (I came here with my own selfish agenda, and then felt the need to reply to this thread).

E.L.O. - Last Train to London
Berlin - The Metro


(incidentally, both included on my "Songs about Trains" compilation... along with The Clash - Train in Vain from... London Calling)
