Paul Du Noyer @ The Cornerstone: The quintessential songs of Liverpool and London

AS mentioned on recent GM's passim, I am 'in conversation' with Paul Du Noyer at the Cornerstone campus of Liverpool Hope University for its Cornerstone Festival tomorrow. (Thursday, November 26, Room: COR114, 1pm)
I have put together a collaborative playlist on Spotify as a talking point for one of the questions.
However, what do you think are the best songs about Liverpool and London or the best songs from acts from those cities?
If you are a Spotify user please contribute here or add your suggestions below.

Please offer all your opinions widely and generously.


  1. Waterloo Sunset for London
    Penny Lane for Liverpool.
    Hate to be predictable...
    but gotta' be honest!

  2. London Calling / Guns of Brixton - The Clash: pretty predictable

    Biscuits - Fink: Just for how he depicts his hatred at working in City of London

    Frank Turner - Long Live The Queen: another possible shout for London.

    Gomez - Whippin' Picidilly: Not so much focused on Liverpool (although recorded in Parr Street Studios), but just a good song about a galavant around Northern England.

    Jamie T/ Smiths/ Libertines - most of their material really

    No More Eating - Plan B: About London's poverty and drug culture.
