new york, new york

last winter i went to see ‘shame’ in the theaters, and despite the rampant nudity, glory holes, and sexual innuendos projecting off the screen—this fully clothed and melancholy rendition of the city namesake tune is what stuck in my head.  i am currently mad at new york, and have been surrounding myself with city related tunes in order to mediate those feelings.  not especially a huge carey mulligan fan, but this tear sodden version will be on many playlists for years to come. by sv
