56. Laura Nyro, "New York Tendaberry" (1969)

On the stark title track of Nyro's third album, the singer-songwriter offers a dark hymn of urban self-renewal. Accompanying herself on piano, she begins in a bleak space ("the past is a blue note inside me"), but builds to an impassioned swell: "Sidewalk and pigeon/You look like a city/But you feel like religion to me."
