Ten Songs About Phoenix, Arizona

public enemyI’m having a great time writing for Parachute by Mapquest lately. They tasked me with writing a list of songs about Phoenix, Arizona. When one thinks about songs written in ode to a city, you might think about Memphis, TN. Maybe New York, NY? Viva Las Vegas, anyone?

Well, after some serious Googling, I discovered several songs that mention Phoenix, AZ. I even learned that Public Enemy had a role in the history of civil rights in this state. I was fascinated.

So today you can find me here, sharing ten songs about Phoenix, Arizona. I hope you find it as interesting as I did.
