Phoenix is today's FUV Essentials artist — the French band begins a five-night residency at Brooklyn Steel tonight.

Since the group's 2017 album, Ti Amo, was inspired by their love of Rome, how about songs about cities today for the Question of the Day?

There are many to choose from! Let me know your favorite metropolis-inspired music and I'll play a set after 9 a.m.

Songs played:

Simon and Garfunkel, "The Only Living Boy in New York"
Corinne Bailey Rae, "Paris Nights, New York Mornings"
Craig Finn,  "God in Chicago,"
Bob Dylan, "Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again"
