15 on the 15th: “My sweet Virginia, I’m the same as I was in your arms”

“Thus Always to Tyrants”
Yup. That’s what that Latin at the bottom of the VA flag stands for.
Here we go:

Foo Fighters – Arlandria

Arlandria is a strange smoshing of a place between Alexandria and Arlington. It’s also where Dave Grohl, leader of the Foo Fighters grew up.

Pharrell Williams – Freedom

Pharrell has created so much in his lifetime, from his solo work to producing with the Neptunes to his band NERD. He’s worked with everyone from Usher to J Balvin.

Ella Fitzgerald – Summertime

The First Lady Of Song was born in VA, raised in NY.

The Kindling Kind

So I know these folks are from Richmond. And that’s it. Her voice is quite lovely, as well.

Timbaland & Missy Elliot – Up Jumps Da Boogie

Double VA love!

Negative Gemini – Don’t Worry Bout The F*** I’m Doing

Atmospheric and kinda strange.

The Downtown Fiction – I Just Wanna Run

Why is this song so catchy??

Seven Mary Three – Cumbersome

The nineties were a beautiful time.

My Darling Fury – Satisfied

Such a mellow groove from such an aggressive sounding band name.

SOJA – True Love

Full Name: Soldiers Of Jah Army.
Description: Reggae band based in Arlington.

Screen Vinyl Image – Night Trip

Whoa, careful guys, the music vid for this one is a little tough on the eyes…

Imaginary Sons – Let It Beer

This is actually a video of the full album. Woot. Richmond band.

People’s Blues of Richmond – Quit Or Die

I feel like these guys would be a helluva lot of fun to see live.

Robert Cray – Smoking Gun

This 5 time Grammy winner technically was born in Georgia, BUT he didn’t start his first band until his family moved him tooooo: Virginia.

Broadside – Come &Go

“…Fell for you that summer on the east coast…”

Jessie Gutierrez

Honorable Mention:
Patsy Cline
Trey Songz
