Get Fired Up About Our Sports Teams With Songs About LA

Open up the sports section of any newspaper and the headline may very well read “Los Angeles Versus the World.” It’s that good to be an LA sports fan right now. The Lakers, Clippers, and Kings are making deep runs in the playoffs while the Dodgers are all holding on to first place. In short, LA is dominating the national sports landscape.

The Western Conference semi-finals begin tonight for the Lakers against the Oklahoma City Thunder while the Dodgers are opening up against the D-backs after completing their sweep of the Rockies. Tomorrow the Clippers get their first crack at the Spurs and the Kings hope to move just two wins away from their first Stanley Cup Finals appearance since 1993.

In honor of our city’s great sports accomplishments, we’ve put together a list of songs about LA. Think we’ve missed any? Let us know in the comments!
