As I traveled around Los Angeles this past week to report on how the City is reopening safely, I was thinking about all the special moments I’ve had here – and there are so many to share. As I thought about more moments, I started to recall some of the songs that played a big role in some of those same memories, so I wanted to share them with you to see if they have any meaning to you! My favorite part about Los Angeles is the energy and having a great playlist helps make my days brighter.
1. I WISH THEY ALL COULD BE CALIFORNIA GIRLS
by The Beach Boys
Growing up in Phoenix, anything by the Beach Boys made me think about the beaches of Los Angeles. The California Lifestyle was such a faraway dream for me and I am so grateful to actually be living here now.
by The Mamas and The Papas
I went to college in Minneapolis and worked my way through school at a restaurant on Seven Corners called Sgt. Preston’s. Every time this song came on the who staff would sing along. It was such a fun fantasy to think about in the middle of the Minnesota Winter.
by Tom Petty
There are so many references to places I know in the lyric of this song that it feels really special to me. I live in “The West Hills” he sings about so I feel connected to it.
ALL I WANNA DO
by Sheryl Crowe
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard! Isn’t that what we all want to do? Just have some fun!
I LOVE LA
by Randy Newman
No explanation needed. LOL.
