Hurray For The Riff RaffʻʻLiving In The Cityʼʼ (Official Video)

Alynda Lee Segarra

Hurray for the Riff Raff is an folk-blues/Americana band from New Orleans, Louisiana. It was formed by Alynda Lee Segarra, a singer-songwriter of Puerto Rican heritage from the Bronx, New York, after she had moved to New Orleans in 2007. Another members: Jordan Hyde — guitarist, Charlie Ferguson on drums, Sarah Goldstone — keys, Justin Kimmel and Kellen Harrison on bass. Past members: Yosi Perlstein, Walt McClements, Sam Doores, Casey Wayne McAllister, Dan Cutler, and David Jamison.

The group released several albums independently, 2008’s It Don’t Mean I Don’t Love You, 2010’s Young Blood Bluesand a self-titled CD composed of Segarra‘s favorite songs from those records on Loose Music in Europe on March 21, 2011. In May 2012, Hurray for the Riff Raff released Look Out Mama on their own label, Born to Win Records. Since signing with ATO Records, the band has released the critically acclaimed studio albums Small Town Heroes (2014) and The Navigator (2017), featuring a more distinctive and comprehensive sound.

In “Living in the City”, rock-oriented re-interpretations of the group’s signature Americana, Segarra sets the scene for the first act, a snapshot of life in the PJs for a young girl. The city is a thinly veiled but unnamed stand-in for New York, a city and culture Segarra fled from the day after she turned 17.

[Verse 1]
I’ve got her cane
Oh and Big Danny is wasted
He said I’m the sweetest thing
Oh that he’s never tasted
Mariposa’s singing love songs
All in her dark apartment
Fourteen floors a’birthin
And fourteen floors a’dying

Livin’ in the city
We’re just livin’ in the city
Livin’ in the city
Well it’s hard, it’s hard, it’s hard

[Verse 2]
Oh I’ll take you to the stairwell
And give you something I can offer
You know the heart is not the hopeless
The heart is a lonely hunter
Hot long summer days
We’re just sneakin’ by the river
Well, I’ll lock my dreams away
And I’ll watch the city quiver

Livin’ in the city
We’re just livin’ in the city
We’re livin’ in the city
Well it’s hard, it’s hard, it’s hard

[Verse 3]
Gypsy bit the dust
You know the shit he had — it was poisoned
You know now everybody wants
Just a taste of what we sold him
Standing on the roof tops
We’re just yellin’ till the morning
All surrounded by the visions
Of all who came before them

Livin’ in the city
We’re just livin’ in the cityOh, livin’ in the city
Well it’s hard, it’s hard, it’s hard
Livin’ in the city
We’re just livin’ in the city
Oh, livin’ in the city
Well it’s hard, it’s hard, it’s hard
Oh, it’s hard, it’s hard, it’s hard
