New York City has inspired many great songs and movies. Maybe not as many as Paris, or even London for that matter, but still, out of the cities that can be visited on the North American continent, New York City is definitely one of the cultural leaders. After all, it’s got more of a history than Los Angeles and it’s less corrupt than Chicago. ALL HAIL NEW YORK!
Of course, I live in Texas and we tend to make a lot of jokes about New York down here. But we do it out of love. Or, at the very least, I do. Of course, the main thing that I love about New York is that everyone’s in a hurry and you don’t have to waste a lot of time being polite. I like that. The whole avoiding eye contact thing is a part of what makes New York great, in my honest opinion.
Anyway, this video from Kyle Minogue has a 1970s New York-on-cocaine feel to it. At least, that’s what I assume New York was like in the disco era. I’ve only got the movies to go on and Saturday Night Fever always seems like it’s just a few seconds away from showing someone doing a line of coke while John Travolta’s on the dance floor.
What I’m saying here is that there’s a lot that I don’t know for sure. But I do like New York and I do like dancing and I probably would have had fun in the 70s.
