London Living: Tin Pan Alley

There is something primitive about music, the way that it can evoke, echo and enchance your mood.

Every little boy of a certain age's dream (except maybe the ones who want to become racing drivers or dancers (aka Billy Elliot) seems to be that they want to be a rockstar. Travel the world, have loads of girlfriends, create amazing music. What a life.

Well fellas, you could do worse than take a wander up London's 'Tin Pan Alley' - Denmark Street in the West End of London, and buy a beauty in wood, brass or whatever material your heart desires. At night it's quite cool too, with a wee music club or two. It's a great street for window shopping and dreaming.

And for those solo musicians, there is an alley way where bands looking for a missing player (or two or four we saw on one advert) pop up notices.

What music do you enjoy the most?
