Five On Friday - New York

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Friday, September 10, 2010

I am a native New Yorker. I have lived in Massachusetts and New Jersey and Tennessee and now Mississippi (gee I like states with repeating letters in their name!)...but no matter where I live, I will always be a New Yorker.

I decided to honor New York today with five songs about the city that never sleeps, the big apple, gotham, the melting pot, the city.

Tomorrow, I have scheduled a repeat of the post I did back in 2006 and have repeated a few times on the date.

If you have read it, you do not have to come back again. If you have never read it, I want to make you aware since I rarely post on weekends.

Each week TRAVIS from "Trav's Thoughts" hosts Five On Friday where we get to select five songs of any mix we care....

Check out the other participants by clicking on his link above...and join in!

You can register for free at and type in a band name and BAM the song will be there to assist in building your playlist.

Travis lays out some guidelines for this meme and they go like this:

1. Grab the banner, make your post title Five on Friday, and be sure to link back here.

2. Go to to make your play list of five songs. Choose a particular theme to share with us. You can simply post the play list, or you can add a little summary about what you are sharing.

3. I don't know how to make a specific linky, so be sure to leave me a comment to let me know that you participated.

4. No tags, but feel free to invite your friends to play along if they need a post topic on a Friday.

  5. # 4 is my favorite.

  6. Jay Says:
  7. I've thought about and I've decided that if I ever move to NYC, I will root for the Jets and the Yankees. I'm already a Knicks and Rangers fan.

    Actually the Yankees will be the tough one to root for, but not as tough as it would be to root for the Muts er, Mets.

  8. Tug Says:
  9. "and now Mississippi"

    Wait, what?? I know I haven't been commenting much at all, but I THOUGHT I'd been reading...

  15. STARR: It is a song that will always live.

  16. My favorite whether sung by Billy Joel or Barbra Streisand is "New York State of Mind". If I had my druthers, I would be settled in the West Side of the Village ... Thanks for the visit to a dream.

  17. I always think of U2's "City of Blinding Lights" when I think of NY and 9/11.
