Top 5 songs for a walk in downtown Victoria

1. The Kinks - "Victoria"

What The Kinks didn't know was when they recorded this song, everyone in South Texas would come to love it as their own.

Key lyric: "I was born, lucky me / In a land that I love / Though I am poor, I am free"

2. Lucero - "On My Way Downtown"

Your friends are already on Constitution Street; you're stuck at the light at Navarro and the Loop. Turn this one on.

Key lyric: "On my way downtown / Thought you might be around / Come on down, have a drink / Have a round, it's on me"

3. Elvis Presley - "Mystery Train"

You can't go anywhere downtown without hearing it. Eventually, everyone learns to love it.

Key lyric: "Train train, comin' 'round, 'round the bend / Well it took my baby, but it never will again"

4. Nina Simone - "Here Comes the Sun"

If the night scene isn't your bag, a lazy afternoon stroll can't be beat. Bring a book, pick out a spot at DeLeon Plaza and enjoy your day with this Beatles cover.

Key lyric: "Little darling, it's been a long, cold and lonely winter / Little darling, it feels like years since you've been here / Here comes the sun, little darling'"

5. Coconut Records - "Nighttiming"

Who are we kidding. You can't go downtown without staying till dark. Don't let anyone stop you.

Key lyric: "Cause you've been nighttiming baby / It's starting to show / Cause you've been nighttiming baby / It's out of control"
