Song of the day: Ralph McTell- Streets Of London


This song was already recorded in 1969, to be released on the album Spiral Staircase. He did not release the song as a single until 1974, but then it would become a huge success. The song would make it to number two in the UK, not strange if you know that the single would do 90000 copies a day at one point. And the setting of London might have to do something with it too: it was originally set in Paris, but then Ralph McTell realized he was singing about London: he changed the scene and the rest is history.
