Steve Lopez Still Wants Your Vote for the [Other] Perfect LA Song

As LA Times columnist Steve Lopez acknowledges, Randy Newman‘s “I Love LA” is going to be impossible really to equal. Still, both at the Oscars and on the geo-hit parade, there is some honor to being a runner up.

Lopez has blogged an update to his column earlier in the week asking for people’s favorite “odes to LA,” informing that reader response has been overwhelming. He lists a baker’s dozen of Vox Populi second-place frontrunners. For FishbowlLA’s cover-charge money, this is the one that might have to win:

Guns N’ Roses – “Welcome to the Jungle”

Or maybe, as Lopez re-emphasizes, the 2013 way is for the city to adopt an original YouTube composition, liked right on through the next decade. So be sure to cast your vote, tune your guitar and join in for the kind of tuneful city-beat project that Lopez excels at.
