baggage claim at LaGuardia Airport

This is a musical town and therefore needed a musical playlist. Here, in no particular order, are my favorite songs (and corresponding lyrics) about The City:

1. Welcome To New York - Taylor Swift  kaleidoscope of loud heartbeats under coats

2. New York Groove - Kiss  to the left and to the right buildings towering to the sky

3. Empire State of Mind - Jay Z  long live the king, yo, i'm from the empire state

4. New York City - Among Savages  just come as you are, when you leave you will be changed

5. Manhattan - Ella Fitzgerald  i've a cozy little flat in what is known as old Manhattan

6. Theme from New York - Frank Sinatra  i'll make a brand new start of it in 'ole New York

7. No Sleep Till Brooklyn - Beastie Boys  i'll be rockin' this party 8 days a week

8. Manhattan - Kings of Leon  i like to dance all night, it summons the day

9. NYC - Annie cast  NYC, what is it about you?

10. New York State of Mind - Billy Joel  i know what i'm needin' & i don't want to waste more time

11. Back to Manhattan - Norah Jones  i have a prince who is waiting and a kingdom downtown

12. On The Sidewalks of New York - Nat King Cole  on a summer's evening...

13. New York City - Norah Jones  we were full of the stuff that every dream rested

14. Native New Yorker - Odyssey  you're no tramp, but you're no lady, talking in street talk

15. Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters - Elton John  until you've seen this trash can dream come true
