London Underground songs

Angel (Aretha Franklin) classic

Baker Street (Gerry Rafferty) classic

Finchley Central (The New Vaudeville Band)

[Sunny] Goodge Street (Donovan)

London Bridge [is falling down] my fare lady

Silvertown Blues (Mark Knopfler) d.l.r.

Warwick Avenue (Duffy) new classic

Waterloo [Sunset] (The Kinks) classic

White City (The Pogues) ruff

Willesden Green (The Kinks) rare

Victoria [Dines Alone] (Tom Paxton) she skips the potatoes

Any more songs or links? Junkie Doll by Mark Knopfler should really be called Turnpike Lane and it also mentions Turnham Green. Up The Junction by Squeeze refers to Clapham Junction, I believe ("I never thought it would happen/With me and the girl from Clapham"). Then there's Going Underground and Down in the Tube Station at Midnight both by The Jam.

Dept. of trying to be like Diamond Geezer
