Maybe these songs make you want to travel to one of the mentioned cities. The following list is a collection of well known songs – some are quite old but still great to hear!
1. Tokyo, The Wombats
At the moment this Song is in the top 5 of my Playlist: it is from the new album “This modern glitch” from the Liverpool based band.
2. City of Blinding Lights (London), U2
Did you ever knew that this song is about London? Well it is and the popular band from ireland got a grammy for it in 2008 in the category “Best Rock Song”.
3. Loco in Acapulco (Mexico), The Four Tops
Beach time! This song from the Soul Band “The Four Tops” was their last top-ten hit in 1989. Great stuff!
4. Dickes B (Berlin), Seeed
Of course there has to be one song from my homecountry ;) But i'ld not mention it if it would not be a good song – this one has the groove!
5. Miami, Will Smith
Back into the sun – Miami, “the city where the heat is on, all night on the beach till the break of dawn”. Yiiiha!
6. Englishmen in New York, Sting
Sometimes you feel like a stranger in a city abroad – true words, Sting.
7. Californication (Los Angeles), Red Hot Chilli Peppers
There are a lot of songs about L.A. from the great RHCP, but this one is my favourite :D.
So, finally i want to ask you: What is your favourite city song?
