Not to get all John Cole on you, but I am in a funny mood. I could tell you a lot but it’s not in a gentleman’s code.
So before I head out, I’d like to start a thread on gritty-but-romantic urban songs, so I’ll have a fun list to read and listen to when I get back. Rules for your list: at most one song per artist (though you can count Lou Reed solo and VU separately). My list:
“Coney Island Baby”
“Waiting For The Man”
“Across 110th Street”
“Sights and Sounds of Londontown”
“People Who Died”
“Eggs and Sausage”
I feel like there should be a lot of hip-hop songs in this mold too but none are coming into my head.
