It’s Tuesday and that means that Carole wants to know:
10 Songs About Where You Live
About now would be the perfect time to be from Chicago, New York, or San Francisco, but, Pittsburgh???
Now I know lots of songs, but not a single one about Pittsburgh. Thankfully the Google was able to help me out on this one!
Pittsburgh Town by Woodie Guthrie
There’s a Pawnshop on the Corner by Bob Merrill
Ode to Pittsburgh by Louden Wainwright III
Pumping Iron by the Iron City Houserockers
Homestead Town by Mike Stout
Pittsburgh by They Might Be Giants
Dahntahn by Mark Eddie. And really I do not know anyone who talks like this. Promise.
I Love Pittsburgh by Jimmy Sapienza
I’m In Pittsburgh by the Outcasts
And you really can’t do a list of songs about Pittsburgh, and skip the Steelers….
Black and Yellow by Wiz Khalifa
And, one bonus song, from my most loved home town – Holland, Michigan – home of the Tulip Time Festival:
Tulips are Blooming in Holland, Michigan
Personally, these kids singing might be the best thing ever. Do you have a song your city is famous for?
