New York Media

Stylish laides

The city so nice they named it twice-
a frequent motif in music.
The other day I asked my friends on Facebook
to name as many songs featuring the City as they could.

Here are some of my favorites.

Musicals love New York
because New York loves Musicals.
Or, these days, their money, anyway.

Many of those songs speak of a
New York we no longer know-
When was the last time a football player was
"unemployed throughout the heat
living on nothing on Christopher Street"?
When was the last time the real artists lived 
within 4 express stops of midtown?

But still, these songs are my
comfort food.

Feel free to add your own songs
in the comments.
