NYC ****


OK--don't have much time to chat today. DD is getting sick. I've been looking for NYC songs that don't have the words m***** f***** in them. Any help would be appreciated. Personally m***** f***** doesn't bother me that much--in fact, I'm kind of curious as to how the term arose, because it is such a strange insult if you think about it. However I don't want to have to explain the kids new vocab when they go to school :)

PS. I've got Frank Sinatra covered. And Sting. Simon & Garfunkel. And The Pogues. ;)

  1. Billy Joel's New York State of Mind. Streisand does a version of it too.

  2. All I can think of is ... Teenage Wasteland. You probably already thought of that one, though. ;)

  3. 'New York City' is a song credited to the Peter Malik Group but with Norah Jones on the vocal. Should be on the web but it's also on CD.

  4. Angel of Harlem by U2 - would that qualify?

  5. Hmm...this might take some brain power.

    But if you've got Frank, then you're good, right? ;-)

  7. ooh--some good suggestions, thanks :)

    Can't believe I have no U2 on my computer. Considering we have all the albumns ;) Great suggestion Stacy.

    Michele--I'm looking up this song--I love Nora Jones.

    Bailey--I have Billy. Love that man's songs.

    Melissa--I have Frank :) And everything is good :)

    Meretta--The Who--yes I have that. CSI NY was good last night, though I guessed the plot :) DD insisted she was better but I think we might get a phone call later :/
