‘Meet Me In Battersea Park’ – Petula Clark (1954)
NB Don’t take that title literally
‘If you’re a Londoner just like me, meet me in Battersea Park!’ sings an unreasonably chirpy Clark, who was obviously either living rough there or just really, rally ahead of the curve when it came to the flashmob phenomenon. She promises ’music and dancing and a place for romancing’, all of which have sadly been outlawed by park ordnances in the intervening years.
