Various artists - Denmark Street

Denmark Street is a short narrow road in central London, famous for it's connections with British popular music, and is known as the British Tin Pan Alley. The road connects Charing Cross Road at its western end with St Giles High Street at its eastern end. The street contains a large cluster of music shops and rehearsal studios.

Denmark street has various links to the histories of British popular music, both The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix recorded in basements in the street.

In 1965 Bob Dylan visited the street looking at guitars in one of the shop windows, which is documented in the film Don't look back from the same year.

Elton John wrote his classic early song Your Song here. Years later the Sex Pistols lived above number 6, and recorded their first demos there.

Denmark Street is the name of a song on the Kinks' 1970 album Lola versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One. Another track referencing the street is Elton John's song, Bitter Fingers from his Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy album.
