¶ The music of YOUR home ¶

Is there a song about where you live/lived?

New York City dwellers are a gimme.

This song's story is 100% the antithesis of my west coast adventure.

I ran back to Wheeling.

BTW If you view my location - Wheeling comes from a Native American expression for

Place Of The Skull...really.

Well, I live on Long Island and Foghat did a song called '495 Boogie', in reference to 495, the Long Island Expressway (worlds biggest parking lot)

First rule of advertising, that's why flowers have pretty colors, ya gots ta get noticed and paragraph makers

are fine lookin' attention getters...much the same as your signature.

They play shaky here at times. Usually better to click the YouTube link as it will work better.

Ironically, the song was written by Bernie Taupin(an Englishman) about the Los Angeles rock scene. But the song is so bad, we let San Francisco have it.

It's a crazy place. They ran the riff-raff out of downtown but if you go around the outer parts of town on the Missouri side its full of nut jobs. You just try to get gas and people beg for cigarette money and try to sell you electronics.
