This Friday's song is Walking in Memphis by Marc Cohen. This song was released in 1991. In 1991, I was traveling a lot in Asia and this song always brought me "home" for a few minutes.

This Friday’s song is Walking in Memphis by Marc Cohen. This song was released in 1991. There is a pretty good background post on the song at TripSavvy.

In 1991, I was managing the Asia-Pacific-Latin America region for the IEF commercial software group at Texas Instruments. Spent a lot of time on airplanes “commuting” between Dallas, Tokyo, Singapore, and Sydney. While I enjoyed this job almost more than any I have ever had, there were times that you just got a little homesick. Even though I had only visited Memphis a couple of times, this song made me feel like I was “home” walking the streets of a beautiful American city.

Hope you enjoy!

Here is a later live performance that is pretty cool.
