The Jubilee Continues…

Published August 3, 2011 by Aker

Today in class was music day (Songs about London!) and besides watching some of the movie, Sid and Nancy, starring Gary Oldman, we listened to a lot of music. Here is some of what we heard:

The Smiths – London

Misfits- London Dungeon

Madness- The Liberty of Norton Folgate

Donovan- Sunny Goodge Street

Pulp- Mile End (This is where our university actually is!)

Sex Pistols- God Save the Queen

The Clash – London Calling (The song from which our class is named and we do live by the river, the East end where most of the poor people use to live)

The Clash- Guns of Brixton (About the Riots in Brixton in 1980)

Sinead O’ Connor – Black Boys on Mopeds (Also about Brixton riots, two boys were gunned down while riding mopeds)

Blur- London Loves

The Clash – London’s Burning (based on the nursery rhyme, London Bridge is Falling Down)

Adele – Hometown Glory
