a toucha lou reed? a field guide to NYC (staten island ferry, Empire State, Yankee stadium, Hell's Kitchen)?

steve april vocal, guitar (melody, lyrics)

mark stein lead guitar, bass, percussion.

while I was working at a music club, many years ago, I visited a college friend in NYC, recovering from heart surgery. I seem to remember all the details from the day, including driving into the city, and all around, but he was always on my mind, and helped inspire this "heart-y" song.
Heart of the City

Spend time in Rego Park, where Alexander's used to be,
spent time in Brooklyn, in a place they call Red Tree,
hung out in the Village, where jewelry is an art,
spent time at NYU, where they implant a heart, yeah yeah.

you can catch a baseball game, or play the horses,
hang out with movie stars, or underworld bosses,
hey is that a lady or a dude?
So Hollywood.

from the Staten Island ferry to the Empire State
from the Jersey Turnpike to the Interstate,
there's a hunger in the city, you feel it all around,
I'm not sure what I'm looking for but I'll know when it's found, yeah yeah.

you can catch a baseball game, or play the horses,
hang out with movie stars, or underworld bosses,
hey is that a lady or a dude?
get ready, here she comes.

In the heart of the city,
it's so hot in the city,
in the heart of the city,
it's so hot in the city.

Light My Fire
a catchy melody, quite hummable, feat. a pumpin' bass and lead guitar...
