Allentown – Billy Joel

True story.  Very late last year, we moved from Bletchley to Derby.  (For those who are not natives of England, Bletchley,, located just outside London, is a part of Milton Keynes, almost a city and a recent construct as cities go, but Bletchley is an older part.  Derby is a city in the East Midlands.)  We initially moved to a part of the city called Normanton, then after a while we had to move on and so now find ourselves located in a part of the city known as Allenton.

Well, you can see how I thought to myself, well why does that sound familiar.  Sure, Joel wasn’t talking about this part of Derby, but every time I think to tell someone where I live, this tune pops into my head.  Catchy little tune too from the musical maestro.  Enjoy.
