The Great London Songs No. 28: The London Boys


We've asked our London Walkers and London Walks guides to nominate their favourite London songs… and the playlist is proving to be wide-ranging and eclectic indeed. 


From punk to jazz, with a little music hall thrown in along the way, we'll be collating them all here on The Daily Constitutional over the next few weeks in the run-up to the launch of our new Rock'n'Roll London Pub Walk every Wednesday from 1st May 2013.


As usual, we want to hear from you. What are your favourite London songs? Anything goes, from a tune mentioning a London location, to a piece of music composed here, if it has a strong London connection or theme, we'll add it to the list. Email us at the usual address, message us on Twitter @londonwalks or leave a comment below…



Adam, who leads tomorrow’s debut Rock’n’Roll London Pub Walk digs back in Bowie’s 60s past…


Much neglected, sometimes derided, often disowned by the man himself, David Bowie’s 60s roots are given a full re appraisal at the V&A’s wonderful David Bowie Is… exhibition. This is the masterpiece of his pre-Space Oddity years…





The Rock'n'Roll London Pub Walk launches on Wednesday 1st May 2013. The Rock'n'Roll London Walk (without pubs!) goes every Friday at 2.00pm. Both walks meet at Tottenham Court Road Station (Exit 3). You can keep up with the Rock'n'Roll London Walk on FacebookTwitter and at www.rocknrolllondon.com.



A London Walk costs £9 – £7 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
