Urbanity Playlist II: More Urbanity


In the year since I posted my Urbanity playlist, I've thought of enough songs that should be on there that I'm ready for a Volume II. These are songs that celebrate urban living, not pinned to a specific place. Why not pinned to a specific place? Good question. That sounds like the goal for Volume III!
  1. Bus Stop -- Hollies
  2. Dancing in the Street -- Martha and the Vandellas
  3. What Colour Are You? -- Danny Michel
  4. Somewhere Down the Crazy River -- Robbie Robertson
  5. The Old Part of Town -- James McMurtry
  6. White City -- Erin McKeown
  7. Let the River Run -- Carly Simon
  8. The Boys are Back in Town -- Thin Lizzy
  9. Late in the Evening -- Paul Simon
  10. Steppin' Out -- Joe Jackson
  11. Don't Ever Change -- Amy Rigby
  12. Marrakesh Night Market -- Loreena McKennitt
  13. Only a Song -- Ben Sollee and Daniel Martin Moore
  14. Sunset Grill -- Don Henley
  15. Joy to You Baby -- Josh Ritter
  16. Saturday in the Park -- Chicago
  17. Coles Corner -- Richard Hawley
  18. Pearly Blues -- Roger Manning
  19. I'm Staying Here and I'm Not Buying a Gun -- John Wesley Harding
  20. The Bike Song -- Mark Ronson and the Business International
Suggestions welcomed for future lists!
