Listen to AUTUMN IN NEW YORK by Billie Holiday.
Finally, here is a lovely little song I discovered hiding away in my itunes. I am not much of a jazz-ophile, (I admit I know nothing about jazz) but this tune and of course the vocals are really haunting. Better yet, the lyrics perfectly describe NYC’s knack for being captivating but unappealing at the same time: Here on the twenty-seventh floor looking down on the city I hate and adore! Autumn in new york, why does it seem so inviting?
I feel the same way. Apparently not much has changed around here since the 1940’s!
So, here’s to autumn in New York and all of its “adventures and battles”!
