So I was watching music videos at the gym this morning and I saw the new video from The Fray called "You Found Me." I was pleasantly suprised to see it was really gratuitous shots of Chicago. I probably only noticed though because I'm from here but it got me thinking about what other cities have been featured in music videos that I just wasn't paying attention to...

So how about everyone post some videos that feature some nice shots of your city or your favorite city? Lets all play nice too, this thread was started out of in my genuine interest and respect in music and learning more about other cities.

I'll start a couple for Chicago...

3 Doors Down "Not my Time" I think is the song. It was shot in Cincinnati and has some great shots of the city. No link though.

Perfect! This is exactly what I mean, because I have seen that video before and I would have had no clue it was Cincinnati. Thanks!

I found it in case anyone was interested...

Tantric's videos for "Breakdown" and "Hey Now" are both filmed in Louisville, with several shots of the skyline from Ashland Park in Indiana. Except for the lead singer (an African of Portuguese ethnicity) they are all from Louisville

I know a music video by Alamoth Lane- Carousels(Dreaming of Tomorrow) was filmed in Columbus. It offers some nice views and shots of the city. Not sure if any other music videos have been filmed in the city.
