I was listening LA Nights by Yasuko Agawa last night. It really sounds like
reaching your destination late at night wondering what the city will be like.

Another one would be London Town by Light of the World. Which must be a rework of the above or vv.

Im trying to keep city specific rather than country/state/continent, but no hard and fast rules. So what other describe citys around the world there most be loads . . .

Did anyone see that program "Around The World In 80 Raves" on channel 4 many years ago? The Detroit episode with Mr. De' (and his shotgun) was a particular highlight. Aside from that, my favourite Geographically inspired track is Toto - Africa.

Another. Really evokes those feeling or being somewhere else. There's a remix of this which is really good but I cant think who did it atm.
