"Walking in Memphis" is a song composed and originally recorded by the American singer-songwriter Marc Cohn, for whom it remains his signature song.

Not at all happy with the experience especially since we had rented 2 rooms with the expectation of being comfortable and able to spend time together rather than in separate rooms.

It's never going to happen for me.' So it was a pretty desperate time, and I went to Memphis with that struggle at the forefront of my mind." Cohn made his first excursion to Memphis after reading an interview with James Taylor in which Taylor stated he overcame writer's block by "go[ing] somewhere I’ve never been, hoping to find some idea I wouldn’t get just by sitting at home": Cohn emulated Taylor, choosing Memphis as his destination - "I always knew it was a place I had to visit because so much of my favorite music came from there.

From Al Green, Ann Peebles, and everything on Hi Records, to Elvis Presley, Isaac Hayes, David Porter, and the Stax catalog, an almost endless stream of brilliance and soul came out of Memphis.This all culminates in the iconic lyric, " 'Tell me are you a Christian, child? ' " Cohn finds it funny that many listeners infer from the lyric that he is a Christian or born again."But to me," Cohn said, "that line could have only been written by a Jew.We came to Memphis for the Southern Heritage Classic and I tell you this is THE WORST room that I have ever been in!!!I called on my way down here to see when I could check in and the agent advised me that my room was ready..the looks of this room AND the smell..was not ready... Let just say I travel a lot and stay at many different hotels.It's such a Jewish line, and I love that." Cohn reached number 13 in 1991 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. "Walking in Memphis" has since been remade several times, notably in 1995 by Cher (number 11 UK) and in 2003 by Lonestar (number 8 C&W/ number 61 Hot 100).
