top NY songs

New York Magazine just released the list of top songs they think describe/feel/bleed/scream/cry New York City.

Some we TOTALLY agree with, others--eh. And--we do think they missed a few we would have added (including the PJ Harvey/Thom Yorke duet "The Mess We're In" & "Daylight" by Brooklyn's own Matt & Kim) but, here are some we like that made the grade as well as the whole list here.

Listen and imagine you are here. :)

The Only Living Boy in NY-- Simon and Garfunkel

New York, New York-- Ryan Adams

B-Boy Bouillabaisse--Beastie Boys (Diana's fave NY group -- pic below)

Empire State of Mind--Jay Z (with Alicia Keys)

New York State of Mind-- Billy Joel

Around the Way Girl--LL Cool J
