Takin' It To The Streets - Street Songs

March 27, 1987, U2 performed from the roof of a store in downtown LA to make the video for 'Where The Streets Have No Name', attracting thousands of spectators and bringing traffic to a standstill. The police eventually stopped the shoot.  The song title lends the theme for this week’s playlist, songs with “Street” or “Streets” in the title.

 

Some classic “Street/s” songs include “52nd Street,” “Baker Street,” “Mean Street,” “Mercy Street,” “Sentimental Street,” “Shakedown Street,”
“Street Fighting Man,” “Dancing In The Streets,” and “Takin’ It To The Streets.”

Kinda weird for me no mention of my favorite Bruce song: Streets of Philadelphia

 

I've always felt his true self and generosity was in this song...

Bruce Springsteen's "Streets of Philadelphia" is the 5th song on the Spotify playlist, just following his "Backstreets."

Another great list of songs, and fun topic.
Where The Streets Have No Name, U2, is one of my favorites. Also, love Sting’s Moon Over Bourbon Street.

Didn’t see this one though  - Mainstreet - Bob Seger
