Just for Fun - Songs with Towns or Cities in Their Titles.

There must be thousands. The towns or cities can be in any country.

I'll start the ball rolling with:

Thanks GSM... it is one I wasn't familiar with, it is a bit obscure: only just over 223 million views on YouTube.

GSM It is very popular - I couldn't have named it though although I realise I've heard it before. I was being a little facetious with my use of the word "obscure" any song with over 23 million views on YouTube can't be obscure.πŸ˜€ (I'm stuck in the past musically) πŸ˜€

Thanks - I'm almost surprised you didn't come up with "By The Time I Get To PHOENIX" when you got to Glen Campbell. (I suspect you meant Wichita LineMAN. But Wichita Woman by London Boys is still a valid song).

gerrykelly25 I assumed the "New York, New York" you mentioned was the one that started "Start Spreading The News" This "New York, New York" is a different song so tumblespots gets the half point backπŸ˜€

Strangely enough I was thinking of doing a "Just For Fun" asking for different songs with the exact same title,πŸ˜€

Just to add to the confusion yet another "New York, New York (so good they named it twice)" has been added above by Tumblespots.πŸ˜€

gerrykelly25 It might be you didn't think of it earlier because in that song Alabama isn't a town or cityπŸ˜€ (it's a state) Don't worry though you're not the first to get towns and cities mixed up with states, regions and even countries. But as said in title it's "Just for Fun" and there is actually a town in New York State called "Alabama".πŸ˜€

This song "BURY me not on the lone prairie" has nothing to do with the Gtr. Manchester town of BURY (renowned for its black puddings) but... why not!πŸ˜€
