Jackie Tohn, "City of Dreams" (JUMP TO THE FULL SONG LYRICS)
Come one / Come all / One the way up / Are already falling / It's a city of angels / It's a city of dreams / Where reality is not a guarantee / Pretty is the city where admission is free / Step right up / To the city of dreams / It's a city of dreams

Nick Nittoli, "City of Angels" (JUMP TO THE FULL SONG LYRICS)
If you didn't see my city in a magazine / You'll be sure to catch it next on a movie screen / I love L.A. / A movie screen / That's my city / There is no God fearing / We're all just devils here / Here in the city of angels / There is no Godly fear / We're all just devils here / Here in the city of angels / In the city of angels

Scotty Granger, “No One” (JUMP TO FULL SONG LYRICS)
L.A. / What have you done to me / Hollywood / Where is your fantasy / You grant my wishes / Just to make them dreams again / L.A. / What have you done to me / Hollywood / Don’t forget the star who owe me / If you grant my wishes / Please don’t make me no one again / I don’t wanna be / No. One. Again.

Sonyae Elisa, "Love it, Hate it (I love L.A.)" (JUMP TO THE FULL SONG LYRICS)
Love it or hate it / Love it or hate it / Love it or hate it / If you're here you know you made it / We wearin' shades 'cause we faded / And party 'till the AM / Love it or hate it baby / You love it or hate It / La la la love it or hate it / Love it or hate it / Love it or hate it / It's the land of hit makin' / We pack the house, rock the stages / Red carpets on the daily / Love it or hate it / As for me, I love L.A. / I love L.A.

Johnny Marnell, "Lost in Los Angeles"
Baby we're lost/We're lost in Los Angeles/Get up, c'mon stand it up/Lost/Get lost in Los Angeles/Any time of day/C'mon get around/Getting lost in L.A.

Amber Ojeda, "L.A. With Me Tonight"
I came to chase my fears away/I'm hoping that the stars find me tonight/Just dim your lights and lay with me, stay with me tonight/Tonight/I've got L.A., L.A., L.A. with me tonight/So won't you lay L.A., L.A. with me tonight/I've got L.A., L.A., L.A. with me tonight/Lay with me tonight/Just take me for the night/Tonight

Brian Judah, "City of Make Believe"
A star shines/ as the rest get left behind / An angel cries / from the devils in disguise/ They'll make you a believer / like they made a believer in me / in the City of Make-Believe / A star shines / as we all lose our minds / An angel might fly / while the devils win with lies / I'll make you a believer / if you make a believer in me / in the City of Make-Believe

Jes Hudak, "Fake"
If you want to make your dream come true / Then this is the city for you / You can take it to the beach / And drive a fancy car / Just walking down the street / You're gonna see some stars / But that don't matter nothing / You gotta have that something / So get out there and take it / But you know you'll never make it / Baby if you fake it

Melissa Rapp, "Our Town"
Up to Mulholland Drive / To the rooftop downtown / Out to the ocean / We got no limits now / L.A. is our town / Back to my place on the west side / Open a nice bottle of red wine / Tell me all your dreams tonight / We got no limits now / L.A. is our town / Our town / Our town

Blessing Offor, "Smile for Me LA"
Hello L.A. / You’re the most beautiful angel of them all / You're attention is what I've been working for all my life / So smile for me L.A. / Smile for me L.A. / Smile for me L.A. / Smile for me L.A. / Smile for me L.A.

Nevin James, "Los Angeles, You’ll Never Be My Home"
Los Angeles, I see you in the distance / Los Angeles, your lights are always on
You're the city of angels / And a million lonely souls / Los Angeles, you’ll never be my home

Karen Waldrup, "Southern Spice to this LA Life"
There's still some southern life to this L.A. life / There are people on the streets with hospitality / Just because there's more lights / Doesn't mean there's less love
Thanks to the angels up above / Who left the southern spice to this L.A. life
