Summer songs - Streetlife, Randy Crawford

This song ticks so many boxes. It's my New York City soundtrack (come on, everyone has a NYC soundtrack) but it only really works properly in the summer. Summer strolling the city of Manhattan, this song pops into my head. It's a great walking song. In fact, it's just a fantastic song. It also ticks the disco box as a bonus. It was used to great effect in Jackie Brown.

I love Randy's voice. The instrumental bit goes on for ages but never outstays its welcome.  It is such a happy song. It's coming to my desert island.

Who is coming to NYC with me so we can stroll around to it in flares and platforms and swing our bouncy hair?


  1. Me me me! *jumps up and down enthusiastically*
    My NY song is Manhatten 'And tell me what street
    compares with Mott Street in July?'

  2. I don't know what happened to this post. Blogger has been most bizarre! I actually wrote it days ago but it's coming up as today. Ho hum.

  3. Thank you! I thought so and I seriously thought I was going mad when I saw it again today! I commented on it a few days ago hence the 'still' at the beginning of my comment above

  4. Your comment got lost. Ho hum. Never want to lose a pearl of wisdom of La Disco.
