The Black Keys Put Kalamazoo On The Music Map
Did you know some people think Kalamazoo is a mythical place?
It’s true. Thanks to songs from the past, many people think Kalamazoo is NOT a real city. It’s like the Atlantis of Michigan. Alternative rock group, The Black Keys, mention Kalamazoo in their latest single “Gotta Get Away.” The lyrics read:
“I went from San Berdoo to Kalamazoo
Just to get away from you.
I searched far and wide, hopin’ I was wrong
But baby all the good women are gone.”
The single just went live Tuesday. Speaking of live. Here’s a live performance of the song. Can you think of other songs that mention Kalamazoo or other SW Michigan cities? Comment below.
