I'm making a CD for my NYC trip (lame), so I need a basic list on songs about the city. I know there's thousands out there, but it would be nice if you could post some of your favorites.

If you could break them down my musical style, that would be greeaaat.

Cool. I made my own playlist for this when I left NYC to move to Cali.

Here's a screenshot. It includes songs about NJ and a bunch of boroughs (except Staten Island. I don't know any song about Staten Island).

Hey theres nothing better than having the feeling listening to the music from the city your in. You can just feel the music. One of the greatest gifts to the world from NYC to the world I believe is Alicia Keys, Get her song "lovin U" it gives you the vibe of NYC.
