New York City Playlist – Great Music By Musicians from New York City

As our nation’s unofficial cultural capital, it’s impossible to cover the full scope of the music of New York City. What is the real sound of New York City? The gritty punk of the 80’s, the witty irony of 2000’s indie rock, the gangster rap of the 90’s, the pop icons that sprout from the five boroughs like weeds? Perhaps all of it is what gives New York City a breadth and depth of musical talent that is unmatched in the world.

6. Step – Vampire Weekend – 2013

Vampire Weekend burst onto the indie music scene with their self-titled debut that featured the clever lyricism and erudite messaging that won them Grammys along with a passionate cult following. Their later albums would turn down the pretension and turn up an impressive musicology that led to further critical acclaim.

7. Sunday Morning – The Velvet Underground – 1967

When The Velvet Underground first released their debut album The Velvet Underground & Nico it sold poorly and was ignored by critics.

14. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill – Ms. Lauryn Hill – 1998

At times controversial and always mysterious, few artists are as enigmatic as Lauryn Hill. Releasing her first and only studio album to universal critical acclaim, Hill found commercial success as a hip-hop and neo-soul star. However, after controversial audience interactions, as well as dissatisfaction with the music industry, Hill dropped out and would only release one more album, an MTV Unplugged session that was widely panned. She would release little music in the years after that and would find herself in legal trouble, eventually serving a three-month tax evasion sentence in 2013.

But her only album continues to fascinate listeners. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill won 10 Grammy nominations and propelled Hill to instant international stardom. In 2015 the album was inducted into the Library of Congress.

15. N.Y State of Mind – Nas – 1994

With its searing imagery of life in the African American ghetto, N.Y State of Mind quickly separated Nas from his peers. The song is often mentioned as one of the greatest rap songs of all-time and is one of the few songs featured in the Norton Anthology of African American literature.

16. Someday – The Strokes – 2001

One of the most popular acts of the garage band revival, The Strokes are one of the most critically acclaimed bands of the 21st century. Their debut album This Is It was listed by many publications as one of the best albums of the decade, as well as one of the best debut albums ever.

17. She’s Always a Woman – Billy Joel – 1977

One of the Big Apple’s rock icons, Billy Joel has sold over 750 million records world-wide. His songs feature all the highs, and lows, of life and stardom in the city. Few musicians are as tied to their city as Billy Joel is to New York.

18. No One – Alicia Keys – 2007

Classically trained and blessed with a gospel belting voice, Alicia Keys was one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed musicians in the 2000’s. Her album As I Am earned her three Grammy nominations in 2007 as well as the single No One that ended up as number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

Keys is also an acclaimed acoustic performer and has the unique distinction of being the first woman to have an MTV Unplugged album debut as number one.

19. The greatest – Lana Del Rey – 2019

Although her music may conjure up cinematic images of LA, Lana Del Rey hails originally from NYC. As the decades’ original melancholy sad-girl pop star, Lana Del Rey would go on to influence an entire generation of female pop artists from Halsey to Lorde. Her 2019 album Norman F****** Rockwell would collect Grammy nominations, including for Album of the Year.

In The greatest, she muses on burn-out, nostalgia, climate change as well as finding meaning in an existentially challenged world.

20. Joan Baez – Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right – 1970

Starting in the folk clubs of 1960’s Greenwich Village, Joan Baez would go on to become one of the leading figures of the counter-culture movements of the 60’s and 70’s. Equally comfortable as a musician and political activist, Baez has released over thirty albums and performed publicly for over sixty years.

Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right is a cover of an original Bob Dylan song, an artist she helped popularize with her many covers of his work.
