about

Amy Correia was one of my idols when I was in high school, and she had a song called 59th Street that I listened to incessantly during my senior year. I also had a tradition of listening to Simon and Garfunkel's "59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)" every Friday after school. So when I moved in with my sisters at 59th Street in Seattle, it only seemed proper to write my own 59th Street song.

The words were written in 2008, but I didn't settle on the melody until this week!

lyrics

The cars below on the street
Honk their horns as they meet
The narrow spaces all confine
Apartments and houses on 59

Traffic slows across the way
Commuters glad for the end of the day
Some on bike, in cars, on feet
Passing slowly, 59th Street

The sun sets down and the quiet reigns
Except in the distance, the Ballard trains
The moon rises high, the night is complete
All is peaceful on 59th Street
