My love affair with the city began when I was a teenager. Seeing the Manhattan skyline on countless films, the attitude of the stereotypical New Yorker, the grit… And of course, the music.
In 1996, I started having dreams about going. They started to get so regular and vivid that I started writing them all down.

This playlist takes you to every borough! Spans… decades! And hopefully gives you a flavour of the place if you’ve never been. And if you have, makes you miss it a little less. Enjoy!
