Friday random ten: The city never sleeps, part 4

“Ah, The City. My The City.” What, am I the only one that ever watched The Tick?

1. Galveston Bay – Bruce Springsteen
2. Galway Farmer – Ceili’s Muse
3. The Girl From Ipanema – Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto
4. The Girl From New York City – The Beach Boys
5. Goodnight Houston – Leah White and the Magic Mirrors
6. Goodnight Saigon – Billy Joel
7. Halfway to Memphis – Sammy Hagar
8. Hamilton County Breakdown – Elana James
9. A Heart In New York – Art Garfunkel
10. Hideaway Tokyo – Pretty & Nice

There’s Memphis again. We’re not even to the M’s yet. I remember reading a “Peanuts” comic as a kid in which Linus said he got the only A on his geography test because no one else in his class knew where Ipanema was. Took me years to get that joke. “Goodnight Houston” is a riff on “Goodnight Moon” and is thus completely unlike “Goodnight Saigon”.
