Just what are vagabond shoes, anyway?
You know what's a stupid song? That “New York, New York.” The opening “flink-flink-flinky-dink” riff is infuriating. You get drunks requesting it just to prove they can remember the name of a song, which is cheating, because it's also the name of a city. Then there's the blatant falsehood at the core of the silly thing. “If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere.” They obviously don't mean bagels-- you can't get a decent one west of Cleveland. Plus, a lot of people make it in New York who couldn't last a day in Houston.
