My wife and I are on a mission to visit all the oversized local landmarks throughout Minnesota. This blog chronicles those visits and covers other related topics.

The Soundtrack: Another Song About Minnesota

My mother has informed me that Northern Light had recorded "Minnesota" and that it reached #88 on the top 100 in 1975. You can listen to the song here. There is some other information about the group on that page too. Apparently, they have been inducted into the Minnesota Rock/Country Hall of Fame.



The playlist so far:
Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota - Weird Al Yankovic
Stevie Nix - The Hold Steady
Mr. Big Stuff - Jean Knight (or Heavy D & the Boyz)
Such Great Heights - The Postal Service
An Ear For Baby - The Thermals
Minneapolis - That Dog
Minnesota - The Push Stars
Minnesota - The Mountain Goats
Say Shh... - Atmosphere
We Got as Far as Minnesota - Kind of Like Spitting
Minnesota Moon - The Big Wu
Minnesota - Northern Light

Thanks for commenting, I guess I really neglected the blog for my own sanity and maybe I can really get back into it again if I really try. Hope all is well with you..

Nice one! How about "Big Time" by Peter Gabriel?

Oh! I have one more: "Louie, Louie" in honor of Big Louie, of course...

This is why I should be writting all of these down. I had thought of "Louie, Louie" once, but forgot. Thanks!
