    I was asked to make a slide show with all our pics and videos from our last trip round Europe, which included Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris and London. I was thinking about the songs that I should include in the slideshow that would fit in for each city, and could only come up with LDN by Lily Allen Yeah, i'm so pathetic at this, so I figured I needed some ideas.

    Thanks.

    PS: No, not "Lady Marmalade" for Paris :rolleyes:

    Coldplay - Amsterdam
    Friendly Fires - Paris

    I can't think of anything for Berlin apart from 'Take My Breath Away' by the band Berlin

    Anywhere else? (:

    Do you want a song for each city or one in general?
    I need about two songs for each city.

    Ahh okay...

    Another one for London could be 'The Clash - London Calling'.

    Sorry I keep having brainwaves about this now! xD

    Warren Zevon - Werewolves Of London

    That cheesy dance tune from a few years back.. 'Infernal - From Paris To Berlin' :p:

    Or how about something by a French artist for Paris? Try something by Christophe Mae / Camelia Jordana / BB Brunes etc...

    Songs that are representative of the music that place has produced, or songs that reference the place in the lyrics? Because the first one would be much more exciting imo.

    Interesting. There is the temptation to use a track by a group that has some connection to the city in question (e.g. Rammstein for Berlin) or a song that captures the mood of a city especially if the video was filmed there.

    This classic from 25 years ago sums up London for me quite well to this day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIC6_nApwjc
