The idea first came to mind during my recent trip to the UK. Travel is no news within the 10 tracks series, as I really love the way music caters for travelling without actually moving. So I decided to kick in a few city-oriented playlists, which will keep us through these last few months of hard work before our well-deserved summer holidays.
So, here's 10 songs about New York City, gorgeously sketched by the good ol' blend of styles and voices. Today we're ranging from R.E.M. with Leaving New York to the all-time-classic New York, New York by Frank Sinatra. I wanted this to be some kind of "black and white" playlist with a few splashes of colour, so I went for a rather classical selection of songs about NYC - after all, there are so many great classics you just cannot lock them out all.
Enjoy the ride and ... stay tuned!
