This London one might be showing my age - written at the time of The Blitz in 1941 - although I wasn't born until some years later!

There are plenty more where they came from, Dave. I have a small collection of music containing place names, which I use as backing tracks to my own videos. A lot of the music is instrumental, so don't qualify as 'songs'. Others have never been used because I haven't visited the places - yet! 😊 Reply to this

I've been to Hong Kong many times but never experienced 'Shanghai Breezes' (John Denver)



However, a few years ago, I was 'On a Little Street in Singapore' (Glenn Miller)
