Happy Monday! Today I’m taking part in a Blog Hop called Monday’s Music Moves Me. I visited my friend Mary’s blog at JingleJangleJungle today and discovered that she was honored with choosing the theme for this week’s Monday’s Music Moves Me. It’s a fun theme: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: Songs that have Locations in the Title.
I thought of so many songs that I like with locations in the title that I decided to put a playlist together to share with you all. Here’s my list. Click into the YouTube video playlist and you can listen to the songs and check out the videos: some of them are pretty cool.
The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia by Vicki Lawrence
Waterloo by Abba
The Night Chicago Died by Paper Lace
Jesus Just Left Chicago by ZZ Top
La Grange by ZZ Top
Last Train to Clarksville by The Monkees
New York State of Mind by Billy Joel
Marrakesh Express by Crosby, Stills & Nash
Woman from Tokyo by Deep Purple
Philadephia Freedom by Elton John
Scarborough Fair by Simon & Garfunkel
Woodstock by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – EXCELLENT Woodstock video, for those of us who like to get retro. Check out this counterculture anthem!
Witchita Lineman by Glen Campbell
Youngstown by Bruce Springsteen – I went to college at Youngstown State University in Ohio and Bruce’s song tells about the history of the town. When I was there in the early 80s, it was a sad city of shutdown steel mills and had the highest unemployment rate in the country at the time. The song highlights the situation.
My City Was Gone by The Pretenders — This song doesn’t have an exact location in the title but it’s meaningful to me because as it’s a song about Chrissie Hynde’s hometown of Akron, Ohio. When I was away at college in Ohio, my friend Jeff told me that every time he heard that song it reminded him of me. So it’s very special to me.
I also wanted to include New York Minute by Don Henley but it has strict copyright restrictions so there was no YouTube video and I couldn’t include it in the playlist. But you can click here to give it a listen. It’s an excellent high quality version of the song so be sure to check it out. It’s worth it!
Hope you enjoy my Monday’s Music Moves Me playlist of Songs with Locations in the Title. Thanks to all the hosts and to Mary for the great theme!
