There are plenty of songs that would come to my mind for "Tokyo", but for its powerful visual arts, I would put this for the thread.

One More Time, One More Chance by Masayoshi Yamazaki, the video featuring the movie 5 Centimeters Per Second.

MIAMI

Anything by Gloria Estefan and The Miami Sound Machine - but probably more so the Miami of the 1980's. It's a little outdated nowadays.



or this little tune by Will Smith - will probably always be part of the identity of Miami



Any Freestyle song. A genre that came from Miami and grew in other urban centers like New York and Philly, again in the 80's.



Any Jimmy Buffet tune. This guy is a god for some people in Miami. This is video of a legendary concert in Miami for Parrotheads.



Another 80's tune when Miami came into it's own. The Miami Vice era.



This is probably more representative of Miami today. The crazy European/dance/electronic music scene.



There's also Disco. KC and Sunshine band are a local band and The Bee Gees also adopted Miami as home several decades ago.



Just for my sake, to include some quality stuff. Since the 70's several studios in Miami have been the place of legendary recording sessions. I'll show just one

Tokyo's skyline Soul Music is Hamasaki Ayumi - though I do not listen to it.

The lyrics are too UNREALISTIC.

Symbolic for Gothenburg (Göteborg) in Sweden.
One, if not the, most beloved musicians- Håkan Hellström.

Gothenburg is known to be Swedens rock-capital aswell i think..

Stockholm is more into house music in general, kind of like this:
Avicii/Tim berg from Stockholm.

Gothenburg is also more into indie, but overall, more alternative music. I guess there's something related with the english influence in the city.

House music in Sweden is Breathtaking.

Trance to be Dutch way.


Sweden is more for normal poppy musics for such a bright place.

Generally the Swedish are not too much but a lot "thinner and slender".

The Dutch views of Sweden are all into Ferry Corsten's.

If you want to do the real Sweden or IKEA, should not be into trance - too greasy but do London (the old Swedish is English btw).

To be thinner and watch "zero". That's Amazing and fun.

Let's do treasure and pleasure seeking . . . !


All then becoming sexy and beautiful.

Symbol of São Paulo:






It's not a symbol of São Paulo, but is São Paulo's lifestyle:

São Paulo, São Paulo - Premeditando o Breque

It's always nice to walk in São Paulo City
The weather tricks, the life is money in São Paulo
The blonde japanese, the saracenic northeast girl (there's a lot of people of Northeast of Brazil that live in São Paulo) in São Paulo
Punk Pussycats, a style yankee of São Paulo

In the big city to live my dream
living in a BNH (poor housing)
On periphery, the factory overclouds the day

Don't disturb yourself with the urban fauna of São Paulo
Sparrows, cockroaches, rats in São Paulo's Route
And for you, child, a lot of fun and pollution
Take a shower on Tiête (a polluted river), or watching TV

In the big city to live my dream
living in a BNH (poor housing)
On periphery, the factory overclouds the day

Chora Menino, Freguesia do Ó, Carandiru, Mandaqui, ali
Vila Sônia, Vila Ema, Vila Alpina, Vila Carrão, Morumbi
Pari,
Butantã, Utinga, M'BOI MIRIM, Brás, Brás, Belém
Bom Retiro, Barra Funda, Ermelino Matarazzo
Mooca, Penha, Lapa, Sé, Jabaquara, Pirituba, Tucuruvi, Tatuapé
(neighborhoods of São Paulo)

To Break the same on a weekend in São Paulo
wash a car, eating "churro" (popular Spanish doughnu) it's so good
A start point to road rise in São Paulo
Terraço Itália, Jaraguá, Viaduto do Chá (touristic places from São Paulo)



Original Lyrics:

É sempre lindo andar na cidade de São Paulo,de São Paulo
O clima engana, a vida é grana em São Paulo
A japonesa loura, a nordestina moura de São Paulo
Gatinhas punks, um jeito yankee de São Paulo, de São Paulo
Ah!
Na grande cidade me realizar
Morando num BNH.
Na periferia a fábrica escurece o dia.
Não vá se incomodar com a fauna urbana de São Paulo, de São Paulo
Pardais, baratas, ratos na Rota de São Paulo
E pra você criança muita diversão em São Paulo
São Paulo lição
Tomar um banho no Tietê ou ver TV.
Ah!
Na grande cidade me realizar
Morando num BNH
Na periferia a fábrica escurece o dia.
Chora Menino, Freguesia do Ó, Carandiru, Mandaqui, ali
Vila Sônia, Vila Ema, Vila Alpina, Vila Carrão, Morumbi
Pari,
Butantã, Utinga, M'BOI MIRIM, Brás, Brás, Belém
Bom Retiro, Barra Funda, Ermelino Matarazzo
Mooca, Penha, Lapa, Sé, Jabaquara, Pirituba, Tucuruvi, Tatuapé
Pra quebrar a rotina num fim de semana em São Paulo
Lavar um carro comendo um churro é bom pra burro
Um ponto de partida pra subir na vida em São Paulo, em São Paulo
Terraço Itália, Jaraguá, Viaduto do Chá.
Ah!
Na grande cidade me realizar morando num BNH
Na periferia a fábrica escurece o dia
Na periferia a fábrica escurece o dia
