Allentown – Billy Joel

Posted on Updated on

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.
