What Are Songs About Cities?

There are certainly countless song titles in the world of music. Song writers have used several clever ways to title songs.

I think it’s safe to say that in most cases, the title was a big driving force behind the song’s success.

It would be interesting to take all number one hits and categorize them by title. What would all the categories be?

I came up with a thought on this. I think we would find a huge category of ‘city songs’. I’m talking about songs of cities.

I don’t want to limit this topic to country music only. I will need help from you for song titles about cities outside of country music.

But I’m a country music guy. So let me start a list of country songs about towns.

  • ‘Okie From Muskogee’
  • ‘Detroit City’
  • ‘Houston’
  • ‘Galveston’
  • ‘L.A. International Airport’
  • and the ultimate city song: ‘I’ve Been Everywhere’

And just for fun I’m going to add this. We had a local Pastor, Jeff Hayes of Faith Temple in Sioux Falls, perform this song for us:
