Subject: Songs with Cities or Towns in title?
From: GUEST,Martin S
Date: 16 Sep 02 - 04:20 AM

Just for a bit of fun, I'm putting together a music quiz that needs "familiar" songs with the names of Towns or cities (worldwide) in their title. I'm finding this particularly and surprisingly difficult! EG New York, New York I love Paris in the springtime Liverpool lou

You get the sort of thing? I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thank you in anticipation. martin

Howcum our own Mark Ross hasn't mentioned his own "Look for Me in Butte," which is on Utah's and his "Loafer's Glory" album? Excessive modesty is a terrible thing. It's a great song.

Usual disclaimers.

Greg, you mentioned Himazas - one of my favourites:

(I'm Going Back To) Himazas

I'm going back to Himazas,
Never again to roam.
I'm jogging along,
And humming a song,
"A day's march nearer home",
There's a cottage so neat
At the top of the street
And it's numbered ninety four, so,
I'm going back to Himazas,
Him as 'as the pub next door.

Written by Fred Austin, published 1927.

LFF

PS There's also Durham Town, The Rochdale Mashers, What Kind of Fulham I, Meet Me in St Louis, Girl from Ipanema, In the Old Bazaar in Cairo, Margate, and no doubt many, many more.

And then there's Tampico, Tampico, on the Bay of Mexico. Or if you like reggae, there's always Funky Kingston. Or, what about yokahoma Momma? or I Got A Gal in Kalamazoo? (can't remember if someone already suggested that.) There have to be songs with Rio in the title, too. And from here in Derby, CT, I am reminded of the Darby Ram.
