From the Dry Heat blog:
The criteria for judging a city’s value should include the number of songs written about it. Sure, real estate, job market and schools are important metrics of a city’s worth, but a city without a song is a city I don’t want to live in. If a city can’t inspire enough passion in someone to write a song about it (good or bad), then what is the quality of life like in that city?
Vegas has hundreds of songs written about it. It seems everybody has a Vegas tale to tell.There are tales of lament and tales of triumph, but when the jukebox stops, one thing is clear: Vegas is in the eye of the beholder.
