Still thinking about songs about Los Angeles, although this one is about leaving L.A.
This is one of my very favorite songs in the world. There’s something that I find really compelling about the idea of getting out of a big city and moving back to the South. Every time I hear this song I imagine it, the sound of the train, the hope for something new, yet old and comforting, the romantic ideal of following your love wherever he goes, the feel of the cool night air, the sound of the train on the track.
Gladys Knight rocks my world!
