Listen to this song! It’s the perfect theme song for Hello Pretty City!
“Roll up the highway, we’re heading for a Sunday afternoon
Plenty of sunshine lighting the way for lovely things to do
Taking our own sweet time, Starting out easy and slow
We’re on the highway, we’re digging Sunday afternoon…”
