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

I've never heard of Luka Bloom but s/he covers Neil Finn songs!

"Dreams in America" always makes me cry, especially the bridge. ::sniff sniff::

Never heard of Luka Bloom! OMG!

He's, um, the younger brother of Irish folk legend Christy Moore. He broke out in the US in the early 90s; I've got a copy of Riverside around somewhere. He's very very good.
