Here are the lyrics to the song ‘London’, by 1980s Mancunian band The Smiths.
After I previously uploaded a copy of Mr. Blake’s poem ‘London’, I thought that this might provide an interesting contrast, as it is slightly more optimistic about ‘the Great Wen’ than is his poem.
Although ok, yeah, it does still contains themes of the destruction of family-ties and the slew of toxic emotions that our capital city notoriously prompts 😁
