    Cool Songs with city title

    The song San Francisco from Scott McKenzie came on radio while listening to radio, so thought what other good songs been written with city title. Here are couple that came to mind.

    Not in any particular order:

    Streets of Philadelphia by Bruce Springsteen
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4z2DtNW79sQ

    Luckenbach Texas by Waylon Jennings
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvZeYDBY4fw

    New York, New York by Frank Sinatra
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnNhNqtX1t4

    Whoever's In New England by Reba McEntire
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Z3u0taecU8

    I Love LA by Randy Newman
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwv_UXWHZyQ

    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).
    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    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?

    Now that's disgusting! Something I would expect from Finch, but...

    I know, you just never know these days. Lots of weirdos out there. Don't want to piss anyone off, I know you probably still have my address from the days we used to exchange comps.

    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.
