It’s been a very big week for Bernal Heights appreciation.
First, we launched Bernalwood. Then, San Francisco artist Jhameel unveiled a new album, and — wouldn’t you know it — the lead track is called “Bernal Heights.”
To be sure, “Bernal Heights” is no Sesame Street-style sing-along. In fact, as as near as I can tell, Jhameel
never actually says the words “Bernal Heights.” (CORRECTION: In the comments, BernalDweller points out “The Heights of Bernal” get a shout-out at around 1:10.) Like Bernal Hill itself, the song is energetic and atmospheric, and I really like it. Give it a listen:
Jhameel’s brand-new album, “The Human Condition,” is available for free download here.

I believe I hear “the heights of Bernal (pronounced ber-NAL) around the 1:10 mark…
A band called Subimage had a song and an album called “Bernal Hill” released in 2006– I remember buying it at Aquarius back then.
wow! not a bad song! yay! my theme song!
And of course, when a single song does not suffice, there’s Beth Custer and the Left Coast Ensemble’s _Bernal Heights Suite_ (which I discovered at none other than Red Hill Books):
Wow. Thanks for the tip!
