New York Playlist x 100

In the latest issue of New York, Jody Rosen creates a New York-themed playlist, running from 1928 to 2014 (from Sophie Tucker to Angel Haze). “I focused on songs about New York, and about archetypal New York folkways and experiences, and I aimed for a nice blend: iconic New York anthems and obscure ones, legendary artists and little-known ones, old songs and songs recent enough to name-drop Kinkos and ‘some kid from F.I.T.'”

  1. No “New York City,” Scott—I thought the Demics were huge in New York. Very slight preference for “Rock and Roll” over “I’m Waiting for the Man,” although the former just mentions a New York station and the latter contains specific geography. Definitely like “Sheena Is a Punk Rocker” (“Well, New York City really has it all”) more than “Rockaway Beach,” but same distinction.
