Day 1: Song that Reminds me of Chicago

Day 1: Song that reminds me of Chicago

I admit this one is a little ‘on-the-nose’ lyrically. “Stratford” makes me think of the old and grittier 1990’s Wicker Park. I remember walking down North Ave. during that time, and there’s Liz Phair standing in a doorway seemingly waiting for somebody. We exchanged smiles, and despite wanting to chat, I thought “Let her have some space, Bill!”

Liz has always been the epitome of a Chicago artist to me, even purchasing her Tascam 4-track recorder from Gand Music when she was still living at her parents’ house in Wilmette. I would see her at Raw Bar occasionally after that, but never felt right approaching her.
