Help. Seeking suggestions

I wonder if I might ask your help. I'm looking for your favourite songs about New York. Doesn't have to have New York in the title so long as it's about the city.

Also, if you have any songs about America in general that you love, that would be good

(Or about London, but I think I have that mostly covered. Still, all additional suggestions welcome)

It's for a CD I'm burning for someone who's off on a trip to New York

Songs I have:
Ryan Adams, New York
U2, The Hands That Built America
Sting, Englishman In New York
Stephen Fretwell, New York
Billy Joel, New York State of Mind

Do you need these to be cheerful songs at all?

If not, well there's always Leonard Cohen. I'm not sure how well "First We Take Manhattan" is suited to your purpose; other than the namecheck in the title it could be anywhere.

"Famous Blue Raincoat" mentions a chilly New York in the lyric though.

They don't need to be cheerful, so long as they're all not gloomy. Thanks for the suggestions and sorry for being the kiss of death to your ISP
