What an interesting and complicated artist Warren Zevon was.

He struggled to get much commercial / chart action throughout his career but struck gold with this one. Full of unusual imagery and including the iconic “Ah-Oo – Werewolves of London”, this one was his major commercial hit around the world.

By including this song in the countdown (where it certainly belongs), it means that good old London town gets a mention – the only one in the countdown that mentions London in its title.
