I'm trying to come up with a final song for my wedding playlist that will be a real showstopper (literally!) — something with a strong anthemic feel, something that evokes community and emotion and celebration and joy. I'm thinking everyone on the dance floor, singing along at the tops of their lungs and draping arms around each other and group-hugging and stuff like that. Think movie montage or closing scene. We Are Young by fun. is EXACTLY what I'm looking for, except that when you pay attention to the verses it's actually pretty depressing. Any suggestions for anthemic, bass-drum-y songs that are wedding-appropriate? [more inside]

I am making a "peace and love" playlist filled with songs that urge social consciousness and positive action. So far I have songs like "Man in the Mirror," "He Aint Heavy (He's My Brother)," "Get Together," "Imagine," etc. What are some good songs in that vein? [more inside]

Come now Metafilter, help me compile a playlist of the best R&B Summer Jams from the years 1986 to 1991, which are similar in radness to the two featured inside this post... [more inside]

I think my question might be too vague to google properly, so I turn to you.
I'm looking for a wide variety of songs about cities. Not necessarily about a specific city, but in general.
A couple of examples of the type of song I'm looking for is Dread the Day (Ghosts of Lemora) and Take Back the City (Snow Patrol).
I don't care about musical genre. I'll listen to just about anything. :)
