Re: 1940's Los Angeles

LA songs i play alot on my ipod......

i love LA.. randy newman.. could do without the slow beginning. never checked to see if there are multiple versions

a long december ... counting crows.... love love love this song

please come to boston (he's in LA at the end of the song)... not the original singer i have.

drinking in LA Bran Van 3000... briliant song. never sure if the version with the DJ at the start is the actual song. i think it is.

california girls.. katy perry.. used to listen to this alot. not so much anymore.

santa monica... theory of a deadman

probably will download tom petty free fallin' and maybe one of red hot chili peppers cali songs......

thinking of red hot chili peppers... are these 4 songs?

1) californication

2) under the bridge

3) california... rescue me.....

4) city of angels... or is that not RHCP?

i actually googled and there's a top 10 list of RHCP california songs...

EDIT: ok, city of angels and under the bridge are the same song.....

looked at alot of best of LA lists right now and alot of love for albert hammonds "it never rains in southern california". used to have it on my ipod. one of those songs you love to hear if you haven't heard in a long time but get sick of really fast

hard to believe you can find a top 20 LA song list and not have "i love LA" on it. also, haven't seen counting crows "a long december" on any best lists other than my own

Re: 1940's Los Angeles

I feel like californication is more hateful of la rather than embracing of it

Under the Bridge is keidis' almost love story with LA while he was damn near dead from drugs

i don't particularly care for RHCP and often don't really listen to that many lyrics... if i hear lyrics i don't try to decipher them either. like had no idea clarence carter's "strokin" (terrible... but catchy song) was about THAT

trying to think of more LA songs... hollywood nights (seger), sheryl crow, beach boys, tiny dancer (elton john)

party in the usa - miley cyrus (vomit).... although it's on my ipod

Re: 1940's Los Angeles

having listened to a ton of LA songs in the last few days, i would probably nominate "free fallin" by tom petty as best LA song for me.

never heard of reseda sp?.... it's up there near van nuys, encino, sherman oaks etc.... is that called the san fernando valley?

yep, Keidis harsh effects of drugs, their role in destroying many of Kiedis' past relationships, and impact on his happiness.

Re: 1940's Los Angeles

Dragnet 1951 has some episodes on youtube. This show unlike todays trash actually has some story is educational and not based on gore, special effects, and superheroes.

Re: 1940's Los Angeles

Sunset Boulevard was a great joy to watch.

Also read Reyner Banham's Architecture of Four Ecologies - a must read for anyone interested in LA. Probably my favorite book about Los Angeles.

Re: 1940's Los Angeles

On a more frivolous note, there was something extra sexy about 1940's lingerie.

Re: 1940's Los Angeles

just finished reading 3 historical hollywood books:

robert wagner's recent book: "you must remember this".... mentioned it before. nice read about the places and people of golden-age hollywood. very skinny though so get from library or $0.01 plus shipping from A.com

"the man who seduced hollywood" about greg baulzer sp?... pretty good read. main character supposed to be this great guy but i thought he was basically a D-bag... what was interesting was the author separated chapters later in the book into this lawyer's major clients (howard hughes, marion davies.. can't remember the 3rd but was really really big name)... i've mentioned this in other threads, but i could read about howard hughes every single day and not get bored.

"the man who invented rock hudson".... book about big homosexual agent from 1940's and 1950's. alot about the homosexual scene in hollywood... took me awhile to get into this book and then enjoyed it thoroughly. lots of funny depraved stuff in it.
