I Live In Trafalgar Square

The words & music of this rather clever song are by C S Murphy 1902. It had a brief revival in the folk clubs of the late sixties, when I learned it.

I once sang in Trafalgar Square perched on the empty plinth. It was a huge televised affair and I think something to do with the British Council of Churches, but I forget the purpose of the occasion and I certainly didn’t sing this song. Nowadays one voice and a guitar would not be considered adequate musical interest, even if several thousand people could have heard me.

There’s more about the music hall and this album in Albums 6 of the menu bar.
