Few cities in pop music history chart as well as London for quintessential rock, in all its forms. We’re talking everything gritty punk to glam rock to catchy, ethereal pop hooks. This week on SniqueAway, it’s hard to avoid that London spirit as we write about the Secret Snique London, so we thought we’d channel some of some of these vibes into a new installment of City Soundtraque. So here’s a collection of songs (even one performed live in London, fittingly enough) to listen to while you plan your next trip across the pond.
“London” by The Smiths
“London Calling by The Clash
“Riddle in London Town”
“Baker Street” by Gerry Rafferty
Even though we missed all the excitement in London this year, we figured there was no reason we couldn’t get into that UK spirit. Think: English charm meets Bermuda sunshine (we love the sound of that).
The New York Times-praised Afternoon Tea at Fairmont Hamilton Princess offers freshly baked Devonshire-cream-topped scones alongside a generous helping of English pride. Pair that with heartier favorites like Golden Ale Batter Fish n’ Chips, and you’ll be channeling your inner Englishman in no time. That is, if your inner Englishman was miles from the motherland, chilling on a whitesand Bermuda beach.
