"Downtown" is a pop song composed by Tony Hatch following a first-time visit to New York City. It was his original intention to present it to The Drifters, but when British singer Petula Clark heard the incomplete tune, she proposed that if he could write lyrics to match the quality of the melody, she would be interested in recording it.

"Downtown" was the first song by a British female artist to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart and went on to win a Grammy Award for "Best Rock and Roll Song".
