Dirty Low Down by Bob Skaggs. Your the highest of the high by Maxwell. So In Love by Jill Scott. I think about New York City cruising through Manhattan.

Would the OP like to identify the city that those two songs give him a feel for?

===========

While not so much about a city, this song definitely gives me a feel for Maryland.

Chicago. Or NYC, never really been in NYC, just passed by it when I was a kid. But really makes me wanna go there.

I'd say L.A. if I'm driving through the urban areas, or passing downtown. Or my neighborhood.

Funny thing is, I was never really into the whole west coast hip hop vibe. Use to be the only thing on my headphones, then when I came to Chicago, I really found a love for hip hop from the east coast. The beats are simply the best I've heard anywhere. Especially the 90's.

There is one song for L.A. that does a good NY style beat:

What city exactly are you talking about?

These songs give me some impression of New York City, even though they have nothing to do with cities or with NYC.

Surf Rider (and Surf Rock in general is very L.A.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXi3mCfv15k

Ventura Highway (typical of the mega-selling 70's SoCal Sound): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5I0d29s6GCc

I gather, then, that the title of the thread means "any inner city, as opposed to a non-urban environment".
