Joe Iconis: "Across 110th Street" (Bobbie Womack) While there are so many great songs about specific New York locales (Leonard Cohen's "Chelsea Hotel No. 2," Fountains of Wayne's "Laser Show," and, ya know, "New York, New York"), few so immediately take you to a time and a place as much as this one. It's impossible to listen and not to conjure up a vision of 70s New York, as filtered through a broken projector onto a filthy screen at the Selwyn on 42nd Street. Mind the rats.
