We took a lot of road trips when I was little. Long, multi-day drives across the big states of the American West. And what was the soundtrack to those roads trips? Here are just a few of the singer-songwriter ballads that are permanently burned into my mind:
- “Sailing” by Christopher Cross
- “You’ve Got a Friend” by James Taylor
- “If You Could Read My Mind” by Gordon Lightfoot
- “Imagine” by John Lennon
What does this have to do with Hong Kong?
From the dredges of my childhood mind, I’ve been inspired to compose a list of Eight Reasons Hong Kong might just be John Lennon’s Imagined Utopia. Check it out over on Expats Blog and leave an amusing comment there.
After you’ve commented over there, please come back and share the music that your parents couldn’t stop listening to.
