Music can take you away from your troubles and worries but sometimes it can take you away to an actual place. Today’s theme is music that’s about or from another place, maybe a specific city or country or a bar, maybe it’s World Music that transports you to another culture.

Sweet Home Chicago – Eric Clapton & Buddy Guy
