    Hi everyone.

    I've got a school assignment, where I have to find a song that is about New York.
    I'm not from the states myself (I'm from Denmark), so I don't really know any songs that are specifically about New York.
    I would have chosen "Empire State of Mind" by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, but as you may have already figured out; some one beat me to it.

    But it has to be something like the empire state of mind-song, you know.? Kind of describing New York - it isn't enough to just mention "New York" in the song, it has to be ABOUT New York.

    Really hoping that someone out there is up for this task

    I had to do an English assignment on it in School.

    I remember doing that as well, it's the first one I thought of.

    Also:

    Andrew WK - I Love NYC
    Emigrate - New York City
    NoFX - All My Friends in New York

    You might want to check the lyrics to see if they're suitable for your assignment (specifically the Ramones one. Not sure how much New York is actually referenced in the Kill Hannah song). If you want any more, Wikipedia is your friend.
