New York state of mind.

Facciamo un giretto nella Grande Mela?  Magari!… In realtà,  gli scatti mi sono stati gentilmente prestati dall’amica Cristina,  appena tornata da uno strepitoso viaggio nella “città che non dorme mai…”  (Grazie, Cristina, il post è tutto per te).

Che musica possiamo avere nelle orecchie mentre passeggiamo col naso all’insù tra i grattacieli?  Ma naturalmente Billy Joel e la sua “New York state of mind”,  dal sapore leggermente jazz e direttamente dal 1976!  La bella musica non ha tempo. 

(Piu’ sotto trovate il testo della canzone).

Buona visione e Buon ascolto!

New York state of mind.     Dear readers,   will you take a walk with me in the Big Apple?  Well,  I just wish to!  Actually I’ve been given these fabulous shots by my friend Cristina,  just back from a trip to “the city that never sleeps…”

(This post is dedicated to Cristina with a big thanks).

If you like to have some music in your ears while zig-zagging among the skyscrapers,  my suggestion is jazzy Billy Joel‘s “New York state of mind”,  dated 1976!  Good music is timeless.

I hope you enjoy my post and my music choice!

Lyrics

Some folks like to get away
Take a holiday from the neighborhood
Hop a flight to Miami Beach or to Hollywood
But I’m takin’ a Greyhound
On the Hudson River line
I’m in a New York state of mind

Seen all those movie stars
And their fancy cars and their limousines
Been high in the Rockies, under the evergreens
But I know what I’m needin’
And I don’t wanna waste more time
I’m in a New York state of mind
It was so easy livin’ day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
But now I need a little give and take
The New York Times and the Daily News
Comes down to reality
And it’s fine with me cause I’ve let it slide

I don’t care if it’s Chinatown or up on Riverside
I don’t have any reasons
I’ve left them all behind
I’m in a New York state of mind
I don’t have any reasons
Cause left them all behind
I’m in a New York, I’m in a New York state of mind
