Randy Newman name-checked the Valley twice in
“I Love L.A.”
Good for him but the Valley deserves it’s own song.
I’m happy to say
“Want You Back” is just that courtesy of
Those three girls in Haim.
Having something to represent the 818?
It's welcome & about time.
There’s nothing in the lyrics about the region but
The video is keen
To evoke this place --- it’s the most Valley thing
I have ever seen.
Once you see this video, you’ll want to drive at dawn
To Ventura Boulevard and then on your feet
Head west past Casa de Cadillac as you proudly walk
Right down the middle of the fucking street.
