Comments on: I Need Some Help Learning to Count from Boston to Seattle The EPA Blog Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:00:31 +0000 hourly 1 By: Larry Teller Fri, 09 Mar 2012 19:51:46 +0000 JR, thanks for your ideas. I grew up in the Bronx BEFORE its grunge era, hence my ancient, but catchy, tunes for six of the ten cities. I like “Louie, Louie.” Is it related to Seattle?

By: Larry Teller Fri, 09 Mar 2012 18:42:14 +0000 Lina, thanks. I also got some good replies via email from our EPA regional friends. I’ll give a listen to all, hoping to start using at least a couple that are less than a thousand years old (i.e., the songs I already sing in the pool and while raking). Larry

By: JR Fri, 09 Mar 2012 18:12:30 +0000 I grew up in Seattle during the grunge era, so anything I could offer up wouldn’t likely fit in with the ipod shuffle in your head…although you could choose a Hendrix or Heart song.

As a plan B, pick the songs that they play at Parks after Take Me Out to the Ball Game…It used to be the Paul Revere and the Raiders version of Louie Louie when I was there and I’m thinking they played Cotton-Eyed Joe in Arlington, and Sweet Caroline in Boston.

Great blogpost! Very original. I think R2 has the biggest repertoire, but I’m very interested to see other possibilities.
Greetings from DC

Region 10 – Louis Armstrong – A Kiss To Build A Dream On out of the movie Sleepless in Seattle

Region 4 – ALISON KRAUSS – Oh, Atlanta

Region 3: Philadelphia Freedom ( Elton John)
Region 8: Rocky Mountiam High ( John Denver) Well its a stretch but still a good song
Region 1: Doesn’t Boston ( the band ) have anything?

This is fun, thanks for posting!
