5 Songs That Could Be the Official Song of Yakima
To the best of my knowledge, our fair City of Yakima doesn't have a theme song. So, in the best interest of the greatest city of all time (yes, of all time) here are some songs that could be Yakima's theme song.
The intro of this song gets you pumped up - ready to do something. If you ask around, it seems like the people of Yakima get a bit lazy when it comes to doing stuff. This song will get them going.
Nothing connects to the local people more than Rainier beer. It was a staple in most refridgerators and the legacy continues today. The majestic sounds of this old commercial from the 70s would be a great fit for Yakima.
The lyrics "I won't justify the way I live my life 'Cause I'm the one livin' it" just about sums it up on why this should be the theme song of Yakima. We get a lot of heat from other cities on what we do and the way we do things. They don't live here, they're not us.
Yakima has kind of a bad rep from other cities as kind of a 'crime hub.' The lyrics in the song ("Fade to backdrops of drums and gunshots") express that.
I've heard a familiar saying around Yakima "Welcome to Yakima - Set your clocks back 20 years." If we were to embrace this phrase as many have, The Flintstones theme song could be a great fit.
