I forgot about Country Roads.  I guess we should include Rocky Mountain High too.

While there are tons of good songs on here, this wasn't really what I was thinking of -  "Boogie Wonderland" or "Rock and Roll High School" for example, are not real places to my knowledge and "Up the Junction" is actually a classic British TV miniseries.

Re: Best songs about cities, states or places

Ummm... well, not real places per se... but given what's been on offer... I mean - California Girls is about ... well... girls!

And up the Junction - excellent British rock song by UK Squeeze (or just The Squeeze - they did another pretty cool song called 'Cool for Cats').
