I wrote "London-town" for a friend I knew back in college. She had studied abroad, and I imagined her in London during a snowy winter and missing her boyfriend back home in the States. Having been in London myself several years ago, I drew from the various places and overall charm of the city I remembered.
After putting "London-town" on the album, I called my friend to let her know I had written the song for her. She called me back not long after to tell me she loved it! Only...she hadn't been in London, she had been in Limerick, Ireland. And she wasn't there in winter; it was in the spring. And...she wasn't dating anyone at that time.
I still wrote this song for you.
