Song of the Week: “London Is the Place for Me” by Lord Kitchener

by Douglas Cowie on 29 June 2018

Each Friday I pick a song–new, old, borrowed, blue–that’s been on my mind and in my ears, and write a short post about it.

This is “London Is the Place for Me” by Lord Kitchener:

Late last week I was reading Kitch, a new novel by the writer and musician Anthony Joseph. It’s a fact-based fictional telling, in a variety of voices, of the life of the Trinidadian calypso singer Lord Kitchener. Before I was too many pages (two or three, maybe) into the novel I was already looking up Lord Kitchener’s music, and this, appropriately, was the first song I stumbled onto. Here’s a mini acapella version, for a little bonus.
