New Amsterdam

Following on from last week's British Sea Power song, here's another namechecking Rotherhithe. New Amsterdam by Elvis Costello is obviously about New York, but reflects on its connection with other port cities:

Somehow I found myself down at the dockside
Thinking of the old days of Liverpool and Rotherhithe
Transparent people who live on the other side
Living a life that is almost like suicide
