My London Playlist

I made some significant trip planning progress this week. It must be all the London/ British inspired music I had going in the background. He are some of the songs that fueled me while I continued to plan my upcoming trip to London, Oxford and the Cotswolds! Oh - and the cloudy and cold weather this past week was an added inspirational bonus! I think it was warmer in London yesterday than here in Atlanta!

Classics: These will get your Anglophile patriotic proudness pumping!

Soundtracks: Sit back and listen while the action takes places in a British fashion

Love Actually – fantastic movie that takes place in London during Christmas

Shakespeare in Love – about Shakespeare in love with Gwyneth Paltrow!

Doctor Who – he may travel time and space but he’s partial to Britain, loves a good cup of tea and a fez and a bow tie

Sherlock – the consulting detective sleuths through London 

British Bands/Artists: Love these artists because of their British heritage!

Adele – born in London

Mumford and Sons – the band formed in London in 2007

Coldplay – the band formed in 1996 at University College London

The Beatles – if I need to explain who these guys are…well…

Songs About London

LDN –Lilly Allen - a nice little video of Lilly riding around London (LDN)

London – The Smiths – Morrissey may be anti-monarchy but he loves London

A Day inthe Life – The Beatles – Listed as one of the greatest British songs

Cemeteries of London – Coldplay – who doesn’t love some Coldplay?

City of Blinding Lights – U2 – partly inspired by Bono’s first trip to London – plus I just LOVE U2.


  1. I've got a London playlist that includes many of these - another song I think would fit with your list is London Calling by the Clash. I'm also partial to the Cure.
