Glasgow- ‘Most Mentioned UK City in Song Titles’!
The report was released after a chart produced by PRS for Music – an association of composers, songwriters and music publishers – looked at 30 towns and cities, excluding London. The city of Glasgow and Edinburgh are also the most sought after ones by visitors on Scottish Tours.
According to chart report, Glasgow was top with 119, followed by Edinburgh on 95, Birmingham on 89, Liverpool on 67 and Manchester on 63. Belfast was sixth on 60, followed by York on 59, Brighton on 54, Bristol on 49 and Newcastle on 31.
Glasgow could impress most of the songwriters enough to feed off their inspiration and this could be the reason why most number of songs is written on the city. And, for the selection committee, it’s great to see two Scottish cities, both Glasgow and Edinburgh, having such an effect on their members.
