Listening Theme: The London Underground


Listening Theme: The London Underground

November 18, 2013 at 5:47am

Hi all,

I’ve been meaning to do a London based Listening Theme for a while now but couldn’t decide how to approach it (too many bands from London). So I came up with the idea of using the London Underground map. It is the 150th anniversary after all. I’m looking for song titles that are (or include) London Underground stations (including the DLR and London Overground). I will also accept song lyrics that include station names.

Yes, there are some obvious ones, BAKER STREET and WATERLOO etc., but I want some obscure ones. So if you can think of any, let me know and I’ll listen to them and make up a playlist.

Cheers, Paul

the small print:

If you’re new to this little project of mine it’s basically an opportunity for me to listen to and discover music and artists I wouldn’t normally listen to by asking my Facebook friends to give me their recommendations (albums, tracks and artists that influenced them maybe). I choose a particular music genre or theme or artiste and listen to just that for a week or two. I’ve discovered some great music over the past couple of years (see my previous notes and you’ll get the idea) and I value any contributions you can make.

If you’ve been tagged, you are under no obligation to take part but if you can spare a couple of minutes to recommend some great albums or tracks I’ll be most grateful and if you’re reading this and not been tagged (nothing personal) please feel free to participate anyway, the more recommendations the better.
