I was born in San Jose, California. I moved to Pleasanton, California. Then I moved to Austin, Texas. Unfortunately, none of my cities have been written about, at least to my knowledge. Not so for these cities!
Brad and I should write a song about Austin and how much we love it... Because we really do...

Isn't Austin wondrous?

mp3 Sufjan Stevens- Chicago
I love this song to pieces. Seamless and crisp and bubbly and perfect.

mp3 Augustana- Boston
I can actually play this song with my limited skills on the piano! But don't get me wrong, the song is catchy and beautiful.

mp3 Arctic Monkeys- Fake Tales of San Francisco
Wondrous pump-up music, no matter what you're pumping up for.

mp3 Sunday's Best- The Salt Mines of Santa Monica
The song is crunchy. Yea. Listen and tell me if you agree.

mp3 Hot Hot Heat- In Cairo
Piano is almost 7th Heaven-ish. Good thing it stops before it really is.

mp3 Of Montreal- Oslo in the Summertime
Starts out sounding like a video game. Then to an action film. Then to a techno dance club. Then if you were in the techno dance club on acid. Then it kind of stays there. Heh.

It's not true that none of your cities has a song written about it: there's "Do You Know The Way to San Jose" by Dionne Warwick. :D

There's probably an Austin song somewhere. It's name-checked in "Jump On It" by Sir-Mix-A-Lot, at the very least. XD
