Best songs about cities, states or places

What are the best ones?  NOTE:  just having the place name in the title doesn't make it "about" the place, e.g. "Ohio" by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young is NOT about Ohio.  Here's the list I came up with:

New York State of Mind - Billy Joel
Cleveland Rocks - Ian Hunter
Dirty Water (Boston) - The Standells
New York, New York - Frank Sinatra
I Love L.A. - Randy Newman
Georgia On My Mind - Ray Charles
Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Miami - Will Smith
Philadelphia Freedom - Elton John
California Dreamin' - The Mamas & The Papas
Detroit Rock City - Kiss
Miami - Randy Newman
Mexico - James Taylor
Great White North - Rush (featuring Dave Thomas & Rick Moranis)
Kansas City - Fats Domino
Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A.
South Bronx - KRS One
Shattered (N.Y. City) - The Rolling Stones

What are some other good ones?

Omaha by Counting Crows is good.  I saw Maroon 5 over the summer and they were playing.
