The band is famous for their song, "Lake Shore Drive":
Being a lifelong Chicagoan and a North Sider specifically, this song never fails to evoke my own memories and at this point homesickness. The funny thing is that I can't think of another "Chicago" song that does the same thing.
"Chicago That Toddlin' Town" mentions State Street "that great street" but that's about it:
"My Kind of Town" mentions the Wrigley Building and the Union Stockyards and "all that jazz".
Lastly the Robert Johnson song , "Sweet Home Chicago" , may be a blues standard (and I do like it) but it's not even really about Chicago.
Do you have a favorite song about your hometown or the place you call home? Favorite place song in general?
I really couldn't think of many off the top of my head. Here are some that came to mind:
I'm sure there are many more and I'm sure I forgot some obvious ones. What did I miss?
