L.A. Songs – “Los Angeles, I’m Yours”

The Decemberists

Today’s Los Angeles song comes from those proggy, anachronistic minstrels from Portland, The Decemberists. From Her Majesty, comes this off-kilter and oddly pleasing tune. It’s considerably more upbeat than yesterday’s Go-Go’s tune, and may not be the quintessential L.A. cut, but it’s a nice balance.

From Saturdays to Mondays
You hill and valley crowd
Hanging your trousers down at heel
This is the realest thing
As ancient choirs sing
A dozen blushing cherubs wheel above
Los Angeles I love

I’m off to Las Vegas (New Mexico) again to hang with relatives and take a few pics of my old house. I’ll be back tomorrow with more words and another Los Angeles tune.
