13 Songs About Girls

9/13/2015 2:00pm EDT
A Guy’s Perspective: 13 Songs About Girls
When it comes to girls, it’s pretty easy to get a guy’s attention. Perhaps the attention span is shorter for other things he doesn’t want to do, but when it comes to the ladies, he’s “all ears.” Just think how many songs guys have written/sung about girls – endless! These songs range from chivalrous and dedicated to ‘strip down and let’s make love.’ We could never hope to cover all the songs about girls written from a guy’s point of view, but here are 13 worthwhile ones that clearly speak to the power girls have upon guys.

1) Maroon 5, “She Will Be Loved” (Songs About Jane, 2002)

‘Gossip Girl’ Wisdom: 50 Ways To Make Your Life Better
Serena (Blake Lively), Blair (Leighton Meester), Nate (Chace Crawford), Chuck (Ed Westwick), Dan (Penn Badgley), Jenny (Taylor Momsen) and a coterie of others had it all. But “all” was more than just clothes, travel via private jet, and elevators that open right into the penthouse. They had a point of view as inspiring as the one from their expansive terraces.

I realized this when recently binge-watching the iconic show that ran from 2007 to 2012. Although I could have done without seasons three and four, I found one, two, five and six rather entertaining. Even though the plots are thin an...

Don’t Move To New York City Based Solely On What You See On TV: A User’s Guide

7/28/2014 2:00pm EDT
Don’t Move To New York City Based Solely On What You See On TV:
As a born and bred New Yorker, I’m drawn to shows about my city, taking comfort in the familiar sights and settings; yet I often find myself asking, “Did the writers of some of these shows ever step foot in Manhattan?”

I can shake off the inconsistencies, but I sometimes wonder about all the people saving their babysitting and paper route money hoping to someday move to the Big Apple hoping to mirror the glamorous life seen on the small screen.

Hence, a guide to separating fact from fiction:

‘Smash’ only lasted two seasons, but it was long enough to get your hopes up that moving here wo...
