It's been a strange week for London so here are my top six London tracks.

First up Lily Allen's LDN - maybe it is a hateful sneer at London but I don't think so - I think it's a realistic and in ways, affectionate painting of London. If you look hard at anything you start to see flaws, that doesn't stop it being a great place. If you want a hateful sneer at London I guess Catatonia can provide that.

... the start of the Lily Allen video kind of ties in with this. Part Time Punks by The Television Personalities

... and obviously this is in my list - Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks

... this one's London references are closer to home... Big Green Eyes - Brian

... and this is the sweetest of the lot... A Rainy Night in Soho - The Pogues

"ahh London, you're my home" - Dirty Water - The Inmates
