Tin Pan Alley
It became known as Britain’s Tin Pan Alley after the famous music street in New York. By the early sixties the style of popular music had evolved around the new youth culture. Denmark Street was the ‘go to’ place for many young pop musician seeking fame, fortune and also a glimpse of their favourite stars, who often hung out in the local cafes there. In many ways Denmark Street could be seen as the centre of the new youth culture music in the UK at that time with the violins and trumpets of an older generation being replaced by guitars and drums.
'Down the way from the Tottenham Court Road
Just round the corner from old Soho
There's a place where the publishers go
If you don't know which way to go
Just open your ears and follow your nose
'cause the street is shakin' from the tapping of toes
You can hear that music play anytime on any day
Every rhythm, every way
You got to a publisher and play him your song
He says 'I hate your music and you hair is too long
But I'll sign you up because I'd hate to be wrong'
