GUEST,Argenine Help: Songs with Cities or Towns in title? (173* d) RE: Help: Songs with Cities or Towns in title? 17 Sep 02


C-flat, I thought Martin was specifically looking for songs with town/city names in the title. If we include all songs that mention a town or city, the list would get very, very long.

A couple that I don't think have been mensioned yet:
Sweet Betsy From Pike
Please Come To Boston
Valencia
Carnival of Venice (not really a "song," though
When Hilo Hattie Does The Hula Hop
Little Old Lady From Pasadena
The Hills Are Bare In Bethlehem
O Little Town Of Bethlemem
Wexford Carol
Coventry Carol

and several that mention Harlem (which is a section of a city, not a city per se), e.g., "Harlem Nocturne." In a similar vein there's "A Rose In Spanish Harlem."
