Does anyone else have a set of songs that reminds them of Philadelphia? For me, I have four:

1.) Elton John-Philadelphia Freedom
-This song also happens to be my favorite song!
2.) Bill Conti-Gonna Fly Now (Rocky theme)
3.) MFSB-The Sound of Philadelphia
4.) Bruce Springsteen-Streets of Philadelphia

Kool & the Gang - Summer Madness


Was in a great scene in the original Rocky. It also has the distinction of being sampled by Will Smith for Summertime.

In addition to some of the songs mentioned, drums pleaaaaaze......................

Summertime - DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince
Motown Philly - Boyz II Men

Both songs are special to me because they were released when I was in high school and here I am now living in Philly. Guys even started dressing like B2M, they were cultural icons back then.

There's Ween, Freedom of 76. I think they're from New Hope. And then selections from the Dead Milkmen or, really, the entire musical catalog of Hall and Oates.
