I've removed "We Built This City" by Starship which is about San Francisco. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.173.81.141 (talk) 18:13, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

"Cuando Los Ángeles Lloran" by Maná[edit]

I used HTML comments to remove "Cuando Los Ángeles Lloran" by Maná, which is about angels and not about LA. A rough translation is "When The Angels Cried". BlankVerse 14:23, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

Is "Ænema" by Tool about Los Angeles?[edit]

Shouldn’t "I Am, I Said" by Neil Diamond be under the List of songs about New York City and Los Angeles?[edit]

I’m sure such a list could be supported.192.30.202.15 (talk) 21:27, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Here's the list in the New York talk page.

a proposal[edit]

I propose that songs in these categories be listed as follows:

1. songs with their own articles that are very much about the subject

2a. songs, from albums with their own articles, that are very much about the subject
2b. songs with their own articles that moderately refer to the subject, directly or indirectly

3a. songs, from artists with their own articles, that are very much about the subject
3b. songs, from albums with their own articles, that moderately refer to the subject, directly or indirectly
3c. songs with their own articles that occasionally or once refer to the subject

4a. songs that are very much about the subject
4b. songs, from artists with their own articles, that moderately refer to the subject, directly or indirectly
4c. songs, from albums with their own articles, that occasionally or once refer to the subject

5a. songs that that moderately refer to the subject, directly or indirectly
5b. songs, from artists with their own articles, that occasionally or once refer to the subject

6. others (exclusive—not elsewhere on the list
a. albums about the subject
b. songs about different subjects, but from the same name, such as "Los Angeles" by Frank Black (which may be about Los Ángeles, Chile; or Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet’s “Memories of Gay Paree" may be about Paris, Ontario.
c. songs that aren’t about the city namely, lyrically, or by content; but the video is. The lyrics of Luscious Jackson’s Citysong, Daughters Of The Kaos, and 69 Année Érotique might have nothing to do about New York City, but in the videos, it’s quite prominent.

7. others (inclusive—elsewhere on the list)
a. songs with videos that are notable and/or made by the artist/producer/record company specifically to promote the song
b. specific type of songs, say Heavy Metal songs about LA, or Punk songs about New York City
c. songs within a more specified area, such as Harlem, Manhattan, Hollywood, or Parkdale (Toronto


d. songs immediately outside the specific area, such as the County of Los Angeles or Huntington Beach

e. songs that appear on other lists. Is Neil Diamond’s “I am I said” about New York City, Los Angeles, or rootlessness? It appears on his discography, and it might appear on a future list of songs covered by Killdozer.

8. unsorted i.e. editor posts an entry here, or it’s moved here by editors who doubt where it is previously on the list.

If any sections get too lengthy, one might create new lists: combined in the case of 1 to 5, and separate in the case of 6 and 7.

Note: I’ve posted this on,

Talk:List of songs about Berlin
Talk:List of songs about Boston

There are a lot of songs that have California in their title[edit]

Maybe they should be moved to that list.Civic Cat (talk) 18:13, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Notable songs and/or artists only[edit]

This list has become cluttered with both songs and artists that are not notable. I plan to remove all artists that do not have a Wikipedia article. If you think they are notable, write an article about them (see WP:WTAF). I will give this proposal a couple of days so editors can respond. 72Dino (talk) 14:53, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
