Lily Allen sings Waterloo Sunset at Eurostar

This afternoon at Waterloo International, we were first treated to a musical spectacle by Blazing Fire, before our special guest of the day Lily Allen arrived to serenade us with a farewell to Waterloo International.

The crowd in the station was swelling, and she and the band treated us to three songs. Two will be familiar to anyone who’s turned on a radio this year – “LDN” and then “Smile”. Her final song was perhaps a bit unfamiliar to some of her regular fanbase but will be familiar to many – a beautiful cover of The Kinks’ seminal “Waterloo Sunset” that was as close to note-for-note as possible.

I actually really like this song. My favorite version is the one covered by Def Leppard.
