This is a very silly question, but what is the name of the piece of music that movies and TV shows play whenever they show the London cityscape with the caption: "London, England"

Wayne's World 2 used it, Austin Powers used it, etc.

Sometimes they use "Pomp and Circumstance" by Elgar. Because he's British.

I don't know why they don't use a more traditional, well-known English song like Take That's "Back for Good"
