Katie's Geography Playlist
So I was thinking about songs about places today. And this is what I came up with. (That’s the playlist link; for all the songs individually, check out the list below.)
Decatur, Or, Round of Applause for Your Step-Mother! – Sufjan Stevens
Iowa – Dar Williams
Devil Town – Bright Eyes
America – Simon and Garfunkel
Sweet Home Alabama – Lynard Skynard
I Am, I Said – Neil Diamond
Rotterdam – The Beautiful South
Midnight Train to Georgia – Gladys Knight and the Pips (Mormon connection; bonus points for a blog like mine)
Jack and Diane – John Cougar Mellencamp
Los Angeles, I’m Yours – The Decembrists
No Children – The Mountain Goats (this one is pushing it, but it talks about never coming back to this “this town” again, so it totally counts. And thank goodness, because this song ROCKS; plus, it’s from an album called Tallahassee!)
What about you? Any tracks you’d add?
