Townsman cherguevara seems to have misplaced his keys to The Back Office, so he sent in this post for us to launch on his behalf. Thanks for your tenacity!
Recently, I was sent a link to an article that claimed to list the 50 best songs about London. I was somewhat unimpressed by this list. I mean, “Baker Street?” “West End Girls?” While both songs have their appeal, I couldn’t help but wonder if it was possible to do better. My first thought, as I sat in my office in Greenwich Village, was, “I bet my list of list of New York City songs could kick the proverbial ass of the songs on this London list.” But then, that’s apples and oranges. Or bagels and scones.
Of course, listing 50 songs is a very tall order. But if we start with the songs already on the list that are worthy, such as “Waterloo Sunset,” we’ll be off to a good head start.
So, what do you think?
