    This list should begin and end with "Sweet Home Chicago." Whether the Robert Johnson original or covers by the Blues Brothers or Foghat... yes, I said Foghat... it should be the "New York, New York" of Chicago.

    Y'know I always think the Hold Steady get less respect on the Hoff Boards then they should, and I shouldn't have been the first one on page three to post....the blazing "Chicago Seemed Tired Last Night"

    Mac Davis: "In The Ghetto"

    As the snow flies on a cold and gray Chicago mornin'
    A poor little baby child is born in the ghetto

    And his mama cries 'cause if there's one thing that she don't need
    It's another hungry mouth to feed in the ghetto

    People, don't you understand the child needs a helping hand
    Or he'll grow to be an angry young man some day?

    Take a look at you and me; are we too blind to see?
    Do we simply turn our heads and look the other way?

    Well, the world turns and a hungry little boy with a runny nose
    Plays in the street as the cold wind blows in the ghetto

    And his hunger burns, so he starts to roam the streets at night
    And he learns how to steal and he learns how to fight in the ghetto

    Then one night in desperation a young man breaks away
    He buys a gun, steals a car, tries to run, but he don't get far
    And his mama cries

    Lol!!! In Sade’s defense, Chicago has been referred to as the “Third Coast”
