Music lovers, here's another music thread you are bound to like. I thought about this idea the other day for a trivia question in the trivia comp I was in. For some reason, USA states or cities/towns seem to roll nicely in songs. I wondered what would be the most liked. So I'll start this thread and after a few weeks list up the most popular.

My initial list of top 10 songs with artist (prolly list another fer sure and certain). These are not in any particular order.

  • Alabahma - Neil Young
  • California Dreaming - Mammas and the Pappas
  • Ohio - Crosby Stills Nash and Young
  • Wheelin' West Virginia - Neil Sedaka
  • Florida - Modest Mouse
  • Massachusetts - The Bee Gees
  • San Francisco - Scott McKenzie
  • Arkansas Grass - Axiom
  • Hawaii - The Beach Boys
  • Georgia on my mind - Ray Charles

The weight of lies will bring you down / And follow you to every town / Cause nothin happens here

Cause lies don't need an aero plane / To chase you anywhere

Man, I had to think hard because many of the songs I would have selected have already been listed by others.

Still, I can pull some tricks out of my old bag (and I'm getting old for sure):

Walking to New Orleans -- Fats Domino

Kansas City -- Wilbert Harrison

The Battle of New Orleans -- Johnny Horton

Georgia on My Mind -- Ray Charles

The Boy From New York City -- Ad-Libs

The Little Old Lady From Pasadena -- Jan & Dean

Hawaii Five-O -- The Ventures
