Some songs you like with a place name in the title?

Asked by ucme (50037points) November 22nd, 2010

You know the drill by now, simple trivia which allows for interaction between music lovers. It’s hardly rocket science but slightly…. loads more fun, potentially anyway. So yeah, any old place name, be it a city or a town. A country or…..well you get my drift.

I seem to like most of the Georgia songs… The Night the Lights Went Out In Georgia, Georgia on My Mind, Midnight Train to Georgia. Don’t know why. Oh, and Billy Joel’s _New York State of Mind.
