The next installment of our month-long series brings us to cities we know and love from some of our favorite songs. Specific to no genre, singers/songwriters have been performing songs about the cities they’re emotionally bonded with for many years. Whether they’ve felt love, loss or simply long to return to their home after what has felt like years on the road, let’s revisit some of these world-renowned cities and explore exclusive homes in each of them along the way.
“Sweet home Alabama, where the skies are so blue.”
This end of terrace house in a prime Kensington location has the perfect balance of modern technology and Victorian charm in London. This incredible property is a hidden gem, just a stone’s throw away from the amenities and shops of Kensington High Street as well as a short walk to both Holland Park and Hyde Park.
Punk rock pioneers The Clash’s 1979 “London Calling” is a genre-defying hit that, nearly 40 years later, echoes through the streets of the historic city and is best enjoyed loud.
“I left my heart in San Francisco.”
Even though he was born in New York, Tony Bennett’s 1962 classic “(I Left My Heart) In San Francisco” has forever entwined the world-famous crooner with the city.
