New York: New York City

Cub: New York City


A song about New York City and called New York City seems a bit obvious for this theme, but alas, I was running out of ideas, and this is a great song. So, creativity be damned!

Cub was a Canadian all-female rock band in the mid-90s. For a while their drummer was current alt-country star Neko Case, and many people liked to refer to their style as "cuddlecore", something I've never quite understood, but whatever. The song is a punk(ish) rock ode to the city that they spent the best night of their lives and where they're headed back to as fast as they can.
