Friday random ten: The city never sleeps, part 6

More Memphis and more foreign places.

1. Leningrad – Billy Joel
2. Lisdoonvarna – Ceili’s Muse
3. Liverpool Sunset – Gerald Jay Markoe
4. London Homesick Blues – Flying Fish Sailors
5. (Making The Run To) Gladewater – Michelle Shocked
6. Marching Bands Of Manhattan – Death Cab For Cutie
7. Memphis Exorcism – Squirrel Nut Zippers
8. Memphis In The Meantime – John Hiatt
9. Merano – from “Chess”
10. Miami – Shorty Long

Lisdoonvarna is a spoken-word song about a small spa town in Ireland that used to be the site of a large music festival. It remains the site of a ginormous annual matchmaking festival, which frankly sounds like an even better subject for a song. Merano is in northern Italy and has a long association with the game of chess. Memphis, I trust, you are familiar with.
