Friday random ten: In the city, part 9

In which New York gets its revenge…

1. Miami 2017 (Seen The Light Go Out On Broadway) – Billy Joel
2. Mission To Moscow – Hot Club of Cowtown
3. Mobile – Marcia Ball
4. Mobile Bay – Flying Fish Sailors
5. My Home Town / Kalabakan – Battlefield Band
6. My Love Is In New York – Black 47
7. Mykonos – Fleet Foxes
8. New York City Serenade – Bruce Springsteen
9. New York Minute – Don Henley
10. New York State Of Mind – Mel Torme

Hey, remember when Memphis had more songs with its name in the title in these lists than New York did? So much for that. You could argue that “New York State Of Mind” is about the state and not the city, but pretty much everything Billy Joel name-checks in the song – from newspapers like the Daily News and NY Times to neighborhoods like Chinatown and Riverside – are all in the city. There will be more New York next week as well.
