Time Out's team of experts celebrate the city's finest moments on record

Through the ages, the majesty and mystery of London have inspired countless artists, writers, philosophers and architects. But few artforms have rhapsodised so lovingly, and frequently, about the capital as the pop song.

Every element of London, life from its glorious landmarks to the its most miserable bedsits, has been explored in song, some world-famous, others lost to history.

To celebrate the realease of our new CD 'London - Songs to define the city' we've collated 100 of our favourites, tracks we feel capture the essence of the capital.

We've also asked some of the artists responsible to tell us just what it was about London which fired up their imaginations.

Explore the list to find out more about all the songs, watch videos and download tracks. Feel free to tell us of any you fell we've overlooked or under appreciated in the comments below.
