Yeah, I started with typical boring ones: Lodi, Galveston, etc. Erased those and tried something different.

No offense, Smokey, but this type of thread isn't going to bring out many posters. I mean, how about your 'favorite' song with a city in the title? Even that would be a stretch. Just sayin' (sigh).

Cleveland Rocks - Ian Hunter
Walking To New Orleans - Fats Domino

Without cheating this is what I get off the top of my head. I know Mama's Pride does a song with St. Louis but not sure the exact title and Diesel does something like South Saledo Shuffle.

Well, I was actually here because of the thread started by Stone, and I'm pretty sure Finch was being facetious.

Whatever happened to the good old days when we were asked to name our favorite song about masturbation?

I think Swish's was "Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head" but I'll bet it wasn't rain.

That's why I took a different route. You could have done the same, but no, ya had to be negative and bring down the whole internets.

Ha! I've got many names. You know what's funny is years ago I got a subscription beg from Playboy mag. It's addressed to Hugh G. Rection, and in the window above my address, it says Tell Us What To Do About Hugh G. Rection! I still have Ót displayed on my wall.

Well, Playboy, if you don't know what to do with Hugh G. Rections, I can't help you.

Oh, I missed this. Sorry, FP. Isaac Hayes does a version of By the Time I Get to Phoenix on his album Hot Buttered Soul. After the first or second listen, I skip over the spoken intro, but the song-proper is a big, lush, and lengthy arrangement. I've kind of moved toward longer songs with big arrangements. Hayes's Hot Buttered Soul and Black Moses are packed with such. I just hope this path doesn't lead to prog.

Glen Campbell did a version, too.
