There was even a song I heard in an old western movie (that I saw on TV in the 1950s) that started out
"I'm ridin' down the trail to Albuquerque,
My saddle bags are filled with beans and jerky." I guess the title was "Albuquerque."

Gotta be some songs with Boston, Cincinnati, Louisville, Albany, Minneapolis, Montreal, Shanghai, Tokyo, Halifax, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Havana,* etc. in the title, eh?

*Actually, when I first heard the song "Hava Nagila," --many centuries ago -- it was sung by Harry Belafonte, and I thought the song was in Spanish, and I thought the title was "Havana Gila." :-)

Jerry, is that a different song from "A Foggy Day In London Town?"

There's also, "New York, New York, a wonderful town. The Bronx is up and the Battery's down. The people ride in a hole in the ground. ...".

Also, "San Francisco, open your Golden Gate. You make no stranger wait outside your door ...".

There's a singer/songwriter who used to sing in Portland, OR, whose name, I think is Tom something-or-other, and who used to live in Bismarck, ND. He wrote a song called "Bismarck," the chorus of which starts, "Hell, yes, hell, no, It's a rotten hell hole...".

There's also the old song from the civil rights movement of the 1960s,
Oxford Town

and a country song called "Saginaw, Michigan."

Also, I believe the Greek version of the song "Never On Sunday," as sung in the film, is called "Piraeus."

And Miriam Makeba and other sang "Soweto Blues" in the Paul Simon African Concert.

Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again

Hard Times in New York Town

Meet Me In St. Louis

San Francisco Bay Blues

L.A. Woman

Streets of London

Chattanooga Choo-Choo

Werewolves of London

Birmingham Sunday

Veracruz

Chicago

Of the above, "Veracruz" and "Werewolves of London" are by the esteemed Warren Zevon. My apologies for unintentional repeats. Boy, I was frustrated that somebody got "First We Take Manhattan..." before I saw this thread. Bob Dylan wins for longest title (and song).

Stick the word "Guelph" in any of these titles for a laugh. It's my favourite city name in Ontario, Canada. My favourite anywhere is Schenectady...it sounds like a sneeze combined with a very uncomfortable contortion of the larynx. NO ONE has written a song with either Guelph or Schenectady in the title for some strange reason...

How about "The Roseville Fair?"

What's the name of that song they play at the beginning of Austin City Limits -- "I want to go back with the armadillo, Good country music and amarillo ..."? Does it have "Austin" in the title?

Another train song that has city names, too, is "The Atcheson, Topeka, and The Santa Fe."

After he did "El Paso," Marty Robbins wrote (?) and sang another song called "El Paso City."

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."

If you're really obsessive you can go to http://www.nima.mil/gns/html/index.html to find zillions of place names from all over the globe. And to go the extra yard you could always search the DT for all place names mentioned and submit the latitude and longitude each place. Surely that's a piece of research that's at least as valuable as the author's attribution. Only jokin'!!

As an aside, an ex-colleague rang a central nessage service chasing the whereabouts of a field technician, to be told by the female operator "He's going to Mt. Charlotte, then going to Mt Mee" (local locations), to which he replied "Well, I hope you enjoy it". He was subsequently sacked.

Here's a small sample of the 22,000 place names for Ireland:

Mount Congreve
Mount Coote
Mount Crawley
Mount Dalton
Mount Dalton Lough
Mount David
Mount Davis
Mount Davis House
Mount Davys House
Mount Desert House
Mount Druid
Mount Druid House
Mount Eagle
Mounteagle

Mount Eagle Lough
Mountearleret House
Mount Emla
Mount Equity
Mount Erris
Mount Falcon
Mount Falcon
Mountfin House
Mount Florence
Mountforest House
Mount Frisco
Mount Garrett Bridge
Mountgarrett Castle
Mount George
Mount Gunner
Mounthall House
Mount Hayes
Mount Hazel
Mount Heaton
Mount Heaton Lodge
Mount Henry
Mount Hillary
Mounthoward Cross Roads
Mounthussey
Mount Ida
Mount Jennings
Mount John House
Mountjoy
There's surely a mountain of Irish songs that I've never heard.

I've never heard mention of my ancestral home - Ballydorney.

Cheers, John

Of course there's no dearth of what I call "Chamber of Commerce songs".

Minneapolis, Minnesota has a BIG week-long summer festival, called the Aquatennial. Many years ago (40?) and conceivably even today, they had a song which got big play on the local media, called Minneapolis at Aquatennial Time. Not a bad song, actually, considering the drum-beating, sponsored purpose.
