A current thread on the Kirsty MacColl mailing list concerns a fictitious album, Ultimate Soho. The suggested track-listing so far includes:
  • Soho Square - Kirsty MacColl
  • A Rainy Night In Soho - The Pogues
  • West End Girls - Pet Shop Boys
  • 'A' Bomb In Wardour Street - The Jam
  • Soho, Needless To Say - Al Stewart
  • Hippy Chick - Soho
  • Piccadilly - Julie Andrews, Bruce Forsyth and Beryl Reid [and I quote Chris here "Honest, it's on the 'Star' Soundtrack. Actually the lyric is 'Piccadilly! Piccadilly! The playground of the gay!' - who knew!!"]
  • Chris also adds: "There was a crap musical in the 80s of the TV show 'Budgie' starring Adam Faith and - twitch - Anita Dobson which had a song in it called Old Compton Street."

    Two questions: does anyone have a copy of the last two songs; and can you suggest more songs for Ultimate Soho? [Note to Americans: that's Soho, not SoHo.]
