"London" is a single by the Pet Shop Boys released as the third single from their album Release. It was released exclusively in Germany and Europe and as a promotional-only release in the UK.

The single cover features a pigeon, possibly a reference to the city of London itself.[citation needed] The European CD single has Pet Shop Boys written in green, whilst the German CD single has it written in pink. It was designed by Scott King.[citation needed]

The B-side to the single, "Positive Role Model", was originally recorded for the duo's cancelled 2000 greatest hits compilation.[citation needed] It was later included on the album, Disco 3, in 2003.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "London" features two men (who appear to be the very people described in the song) acting out the lyrics of the song in the city of London. Tennant and Lowe are also seen busking on the streets and in the Underground. One of men is Alexei Akinfiev, the other is unknown
