Music and cities
Last night I was watching 100 best #1's on TV and it struck me how many songs are about different cities...
I could think of
Going to San Francisco
New York (of Course)
Durham Town
Scarborough Fair ...

Can you think of any more?

And what about well-known South African ones... Are there any?
These are the ones I can think of:

Barcelona - Freddy Mercury
Vienna Calling - Falco
Streets Of Philadelphia - Bruce Springsteen

I do not know any SA cities but the only one I know is Africa - Toto

The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go. Dr. Seuss

"Be who you are and say what you feel,
because those who mind don't matter
and those who matter don't mind."
-Dr Seuss-
