“The Golden State” by Metropolis and Color (2013)
“As somebody who moved right here from the Midwest, the lyrics about needing to see the leaves change and snowflakes fall actually resonate with me each fall and winter. It additionally speaks to the transient nature of most of the transplants right here, searching for fame and fortune earlier than a pure catastrophe takes the entire state out. I like California and dwelling in Los Angeles, however each time I’m having a ‘unhealthy’ California day, I put this track on and lean into the concept California isn’t all the time all it’s cracked as much as be.” — Stephanie Fajuri, Los Angeles
“White Christmas” by Irving Berlin (1942)

Fantastic opening strains: ‘The solar is shining, the grass is inexperienced, the orange and palm timber sway. There’s by no means been such a day in Beverly Hills, L.A. However it’s December the twenty fourth and I’m longing to be up north.’” — Jennifer Jovanovic, Los Angeles

“Los Angeles” by Sugarcult (2006)
“This track is a darkish dose of pop rock adrenaline that completely captures a vibe of smoggy despair and slacker futility on a too sizzling L.A. day. With vocals which are shouted and borderline offensive, the track speeds ahead on a sugary-sheen post-punk freeway of guitars and drums. It’s a visit to nowhere, however this track makes the trip appear darkly cool.” — Invoice Faraghan, Nice Hill
“Ojai” by Ray LaMontagne (2014)
“This track captures that clean, mellow, in some way unhappy feeling of driving within the Southern California solar — the sense that one thing, somebody, or some place is simply out of attain despite the fact that it’s simply over the hill. To me, it embodies that contradiction of Southern California — searching for paradise, not fairly discovering it, and making peace with that reality.” — Melissa Hahn, Burbank
“California” by Low (2005)
“So many people are transplants from some other place, and this track captures for me each the appreciation or nostalgia you are feeling for the place you got here from that’s simply no match for the inevitably stronger pull of the Golden State — ‘again to California the place it’s heat.’” — Shev Rush, Los Angeles.
