Street pianos' unchained melody
We're rather taken with these street pianos, which have been installed round various places in central London for three weeks. Though their utility as bike parking is limited, they're open for anyone to play and aim to encourage singalongs and community spirit. They come supplied with songbooks chosen for the location: the one in front of the Bank of England, for instance, includes Money, Money, Money, We're in the money and so on.
But I'm wondering about bike-related songs. Itchycoo Bike Park? V-brake Hotel? China in your handlebars? Pothole lotta lovin'? Worse suggestions welcome...
