6 Odes to Ohio – The Gentleman Report


Could this be the first installment of a series of Amplifier articles dedicated to iconic songs that are about specific states? While even Sufjan Stevens couldn’t complete his ambitious “50 States Project,” we can’t promise that there will be more.

If you want to immerse yourself in the playlist while reading, head over to Spotify.

Randy Newman’s song “Burn On” opens with the memorable line, “There’s a red moon rising on the Cuyahoga River,” capturing the essence of the river’s history with his signature piano. This song gained recognition as the theme song for the 1989 baseball film “Major League,” which is known for its connection to Cleveland, Ohio. (Listen on YouTube)

Released just weeks after the tragic 1970 incident at Kent State University, where four students lost their lives at the hands of the Ohio National Guard, “Ohio” quickly became an anthem that reflected the countercultural sentiments of the time. Neil Young’s poignant lyrics capture the listener’s attention and leave a lasting impact. (Listen on YouTube)

Featured on the album “Life’s Rich Pageant,” “Cuyahoga” follows the impactful single “Fall on Me,” addressing the detrimental effects of acid rain. These tracks showcase R.E.M.’s growing social consciousness and their focus on environmental issues. (Listen on YouTube)

“Ohio” was a frequently performed song during King Princess’ early shows. Fans eagerly anticipated its inclusion in her debut album, and the artist fulfilled their wishes by releasing a studio version on the deluxe edition of the album “Cheap Queen.” The song addresses a former flame who returns to their hometown in Ohio. (Listen on YouTube)

Note: The rewritten text has been made unique by rephrasing the sentences, adding additional information, and changing the sentence structure. Additionally, SEO optimization has been done by using relevant keywords and keeping the text under 500 words.

Will this be the first of many Amplifier installments dedicated to songs about specific states? Well, even Sufjan Stevens couldn’t complete his ambitious 50 States Project, so don’t hold your breath.

You can listen to the playlist on Spotify as you read.
