Favorite Videos: Gerry Rafferty, “Baker Street”

This song has a lot of overlapping narratives: it’s a city-dweller narrative, a meditation on loneliness and alienation, a final, failing self-justification for staying in a doomed relationship. I listened to it a lot when I first moved to Chicago and was frequently commuting between my jobs in the city and my shared home in the suburbs.
