Tonight New Yorkers will come together in theaters and parks around the city to watch the movie they've chosen for the inaugural One Film, One New York. That film is the 1994 Spike Lee directed Crooklyn which takes place in the summer of 1973 in Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood. To get us in the mood, let's have your favorite songs that mention Brooklyn. We'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Hem "Tourniquet"

Justin Townes Earle "One More Night in Brooklyn"

Steely Dan "Brooklyn (Owes the Charmer Under Me)"

The Fleshtones "Destination: Greenpoint"

Delta Spirit "Bushwick Blues"
