5 Songs About My Favorite City

I'm surprised that I've never shared some of my favorite songs about my favorite city ... Chicago! I know that most of them are pretty obviously about Chicago but you might not realize that the Smashing Pumpkins song is as well. Today I'm definitely going to play favorites and let you know that "Sweet Home Chicago" is by far my favorite of the group : )


"Chicago Is So Two Years Ago" by Fall Out Boy


"Sweet Home Chicago" by The Blues Brothers


"Tonight Tonight" by The Smashing Pumpkins


"The Night Chicago Died" by Paper Lace


"My Kind Of Town" by Frank Sinatra

What's your favorite song about your favorite city?!

  2. I'm from Alabama and we only have one song of note (Sweet Home Alabama). More specifically I am from Montgomery and I know there is at least one or two songs about us by the best is far and away Angel from Montgomery! So good!

    1. It does make it a little easier when you're from a big city! Although Sweet Home Alabama is a favorite of mine : ) Pretty sure it's awesomeness makes up for it.
