Sing a song about Cleveland: Mike Tyson   06.15.12

For the past few months I have been thinking about Cleveland, which probably has to do with the fact that we have turned SPACES into the unofficial visitor center for the city. You can read more about that project here: http://bit.ly/KicO9l. Here's a blurb from our website: "This project seeks to engage the idea of tourism through the lens of a city that is not a traditional tourist destination. Participating artists engage Cleveland as a subject and medium in both critical and laudatory ways."

So if you stop by SPACES you will see we have the participating artists' works, tour books, postcards, maps (including a memory map), and information all about Cleveland. We even sponsored an anthem contest, so you can hear tons of different kinds of songs about the city.

In this entry (and maybe a few more) I want to focus on people singing about Cleveland. OK OK, so some people might say this is a song about Lebron and not Cleveland, but I think it's funny. How many times will you see Mike Tyson sing the words "Cleveland, Ohio?" ooowha, oowha ooow.
