    I think it's the best, when I'm lost in the middle of NYC on Central Park and West...

    I know it's a mess, but you gotta be crazy to live in the city and NYC's the best

    :yes:

    How about "We Built This City (On Rock N Roll)"? Quite possibly the greatest rock song of all time.

    Could be about a non NYC city. Possibly.

    This classic by Starship is about San Francisco.

    Who could forget Glen Frey "You Belong to the City". From the 86 Mets a Year to Remember video.
