Ten random things: August 6

Ten places in which the heart of rock and roll is said to beat:

  1. Washington, D.C.
  2. Cleveland
  3. Baton Rouge
  4. Seattle
  5. Austin
  6. Boston
  7. San Francisco
  8. Los Angeles
  9. Detroit
  10. Oklahoma City

This list was going to be a list of places where people were said to be dancing in the streets, but there are only eight cities mentioned in that song. (The Mick Jagger/David Bowie version adds Brazil and China, but I don't like that version.)

Multimedia extra! Huey Lewis and the News - The Heart of Rock & Roll (MP3, 4.7Mb)
Martha and the Vandellas - Dancing in the Streets (MP3, 2.4Mb)
