Thread: Alicia Keys - Empire State of Mind

    Smile Alicia Keys - Empire State of Mind

    Rather strangely I have woken up each morning for over a week now with Alicia Keys - Empire State of MInd playing in my head!

    How strange is that?

    Must say it is a great tune though so I don't mind waking with it playing in my head.

    Ok as this is not DP and I am guessing I won't get an infraction for a back to back post so here are the lyrics of Alicia Keys - Empire State of Mind

    Oooh oooh, New York (2x)
    Grew up in a town,
    That is famous as a place of movie scenes
    Noise is always loud
    There are sirenes all around
    And the streets are mean
    If I could make it here
    I could make it anywhere
    That’s what they say
    Seeing my face in lights
    Or my name in marquees found down Broadway
    Even if it ain’t all it seems
    I got a pocketful of dreams
    Baby, I’m from
    Chorus
    New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
    There’s nothing you can’t do
    Now you’re in New York
    These streets will make you feel brand new
    Big lights will inspire you
    Hear it for New York, New York, New York
    On the avenue, there ain’t never a curfew
    Ladies work so hard
    Such a melting pot on the corner selling rock
    Preachers pray to God
    Hail a gypsy cab
    Takes me down from Harlem to the Brooklyn Bridge
    Someone sleeps tonight with a hunger
    For more than from an empty fridge
    I’m going to make it by any means
    I got a pocketful of dreams
    Baby, I’m from
    Chorus
    New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
    There’s nothing you can’t do
    Now you’re in New York
    These streets will make you feel brand new
    Big lights will inspire you
    Hear it for New York, New York, New York
    Chorus
    One hand in the air for the big city
    Street lights, big dreams, all looking pretty
    No place in the world that can compared
    Put your lighters in the air
    Everybody say yeah, yeah yeah
    Chorus
    New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
    There’s nothing you can’t do
    Now you’re in New York
    These streets will make you feel brand new
    Big lights will inspire you
    Hear it for New York


    Not exactly grammatically perfect but hey I like it none the less!

    Love this song! The "Part II" and the one with Jay Z. It's awesome. Now I want to go to "New Yorrrrrrkkkk.... concrete jungle where dreams are made of!"

    Me too I think it's an outstanding track

    Strange waking up each morning with it in my head though I must say, though I am not complaining hearing Alicia Keys singing in my head upon waking is hardly the worst thing in the World LOL.

    It references MDMA, very cool song The Alicia Keys version is gay I take it you mean the Jay-Z collaboration.

    No I was talking just about the Alicia Keys version without Jay-Z in my original post

    On another note I have stopped waking up each morning with it playing in my head now

    The Alicia Keys version is lame (not gay).

    Beware. That is the first sign of demonic possession.
