Oh how I love this glorious city. I would live here my whole life if I could. Below is a beautifully shot video and achingly catchy anthem from two real New Yorkers. Several times in the last week I’ve watched it over and over consecutively. My favorite thing about it is how authentically New York Alicia’s vocals are. It’s rare you really hear a New York accent sung but she does it in a way that just gives me chills here. Especially on the word “inspire.” And how passionate is her piano playing without sitting. It’s the first time I’ve really gotten her talent and can understand how she inspired Bob Dylan.
Put simply, this song is going to stick around a long, long time as a worthy tribute to the greatest city on Earth.
