Hi guys! At this moment in time I am lost somewhere in the big big world listening to some great music and hopefully not getting drenched. This week is going to be massively busy, so here’s a filler post: songs with city names in the titles. Most of these songs don’t have anything to do with the city – to be honest, I liked some of these songs better than the cities themselves! Some of these cities I am yet to visit, some I have visited time and again and will, hopefully, be coming back to. Some of these songs I have listened whilst in the city in question, just for the heck of it.
So, without any further ado (because I need to figure out how vacuum cleaners that don’t work, work) and in no particular order.
|Amsterdam, the Netherlands|
Coldplay – Amsterdam
OK, OK, I know I said ‘in no particular order’, but how could I not put my favourite one on top of the list? Apparently this song was written in Amsterdam, hence the name.
Ryan Adams – New York, New York
Betcha thought I was going to put Sinatra or that Alicia Keyes song for New York! Nope.
|City lights in Perth, Australia|
Bon Iver – Perth
I actually listened to this song while I was driving to Perth. It just felt suiting, you know. In case you got excited, Iver’s also got a song called Michicant in case you, you know, are going to Michigan and feel like you should be disowned by your whole family. He’s also got a song called Calgary. Actually, his second album is barely nothing but place names. Is that where he hid the bodies?
Teleks – Helsingin edustalla
This one’s in Finnish. If you understand the language, you should probably listen to it. If you don’t understand the language, you might as well still do.
|This bird is still in London, UK|
The Waifs – London Still
This is the perfect homesickness song. The singer is an Australian who is, still, in London.
I could probably make an even more extensive list about my favourite travel songs altogether, but that will have to be a whole other story. Have you got anything you feel should be added to this list?
