What songs would you put on your play list for London?

As the count down starts for our trip. We leave Friday. The teen and tween peep are making their Londpn playlist to listen to in flight and on the trip.

Thought it would be interesting to see what other TALF would include on their list?

What music to you says I am in London?

Waterloo Sunset by the Kinks is probably one of the most iconic London songs of all time.

London Calling by The Clash is also a good call. We live by the river !!

Anything by Madness, Squeeze or Ian Dury wouldn't go amiss either.
