New York State of Mind

A song comes on the radio and instantly, you’re transported to a different time and place. Which song(s) bring back memories for you and why? Be sure to mention the song, and describe the memory it evokes.

I would like to be in a “New York State of Mind”. Instead I’m absolutely down, overwhelmed by the situation in what I’m living these days. In fact, when I arrived to New York many years ago, by my own, I was deeply depressed, as I am feeling today. But the city awakened me, somehow. I felt free, wandering in its streets, surviving in a city where nobody knew me, and everything was new for me, waiting for an exciting discovery each moment. Yes, those were good days. I would like to come back.

Always Something There to Remind Me.

  1. Billy Joel is one of my favourites, so much so that I have a book of his music. I now and again attempt a weak rendering of his songs and this is one of them, one of my favourites.

      1. Close your eyes and think of the people, sirens, and city noises in Times Square or Washington Square. Think of walking along Chelsea Pier or the Waterfront Restaurants in Brooklyn. With Billy Joel playing in the background, it is as close to New York as possible.
