Back in the day of AM radio, I don't think that a DJ let his shift go by on WIBG without playing South Street by the Orlons.

This is the version that I remember hearing the most on WMMR of you can't Get to Heaven on the Frankford El.

I always loved Fall in Philadelphia. it was a song about the time.

I think Philadelphia by Neil Young, especially while watching the movie, is the most heart-breaking. Sailing to Philadelphia by Mark Knopfler is my favorite though

I love Philadelphia, but a musical muse it is not.

However, this is my favorite Philadelphia-inspired song (the music video was also filmed in Philly too!)

The one I really love is Peter Cincotti's Goodbye Philadelphia.

Love "Fall in Philadelphia". I can play it over and over and not get tired of it.

Despise Springsteen's "Streets of Philadelphia". I love lots of his other songs but that one is tuneless and boring.

I also came to really love "Expressway to Your Heart" when I learned the "expressway" being referenced was the Schuylkill.
