Ten On Tuesday: New York State of Mind

I leave Thursday for New York City........

1. New York, New York ~ Frank Sinatra
2. Empire State of Mind ~ Jay Z, Alicia Keys
3. New York State of Mind ~ Billy Joel
4. No Sleep Til Brooklyn ~ Beastie Boys
5. New York ~ U2
6. Englishman in New York ~ Sting
7. The Only Living Boy in New York ~ Simon & Garfunkel
8. Going to New York ~ Jimmy Reed (From the Live at Carnegie Hall album)
9. Brooklyn Bridge ~ Sean Nelson
10. A Queens Story ~ Nas

If you can type the song title "Englishman in New York" and not instantly have the lyrics "oh oh I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien, I'm an Englishman in New York"  stuck in your head, you must not be closely related to my big sister. True story.

Another true story, I once re-wrote the lyrics of "New York, New York" to "Wakeboard, Wakeboard" and performed it at a family talent show (because I have wakeboarders in my family,ya know). My sisters did a kick line behind me. My sisters and I, man. We are an odd but wonderful bunch.
