    I mean no slight to our British brethren by this, but it’s the first song that entered my mind. Please listen in good humor.

    "Calling Baton Rouge" by New Grass Revival was on the radio while I was still a student at LSU.
    Garth Brooks released it as well and it became pretty dang popular.

    I still like that tune.

    Lovely tune. One of theirs, or maybe a solo one, mentions Mondaino, where I played a fair amount of foosball one summer. I lived in the next castle down the hill.

    Cheers,

    It seems the Mondaino song was called a place to hide away by Robert Forster. So, solo, not Go Betweens. I didn’t live there, but if I needed toothpaste or soap, or a bottle of wine, I d have to trudge up the hill to Mondaino. And no, I never did try the cheese.

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    I don’t know if there’s a single song about Maryland
    Although the national anthem was written here but that all of ours and more of a poem turned song


    I just looked some up and the only artist I recognized was frank zappa but it’s not a song that everyone hears and thinks about

    I wonder which state has the most songs , Texas probably has a lot

    Ok, the town of the title I have never been to. But the song references an unfortunate incident in Toronto’s history. That is now a park where our semi-pro baseball team plays. If you want to see what it looks like now see my recentish thread about enjoying a ball game on a nice summer night.

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    Love England.. England is the only country in the UK that doesn't have a national anthem. Jerusalem is a British hymn that is a firm favourite sometimes used at sporting events alongside Land of Hope and Glory which is sometimes used at the Commonwealth games. Both considered favourites should England ever have one.

    Here's Bruce Dickinsons take on the song.



    And someones classical guitar version without vocals which is rather nice.

    “Does Fort Worth Ever Cross Your Mind” by George Straight

    “Texas Flood” by Larry Davis and some cat in a hat with a Strat

    “Dallas,” written by Jimmie Dale Gilmore and made famous by Joe Ely...I love the lyric, “Dallas is a woman who’ll walk on you when you’re down/But when you’re in a rut, she’s the kind you want to take around...

    My own compositions “Panther City Blues” (an old nickname for Fort Worth which has recently come back into vogue), “Dallas Women” (an unflattering portrait based on the ex-wife of a friend) and “Welcome To Texas (Now Go Home)”...that one’s pretty self-explanatory.

    I didn’t know this song, but I know the stories it references.

    I’m struggling to think of Toronto centric songs. There was the band Toronto. Lakeside Park by Rush was I think in the burbs. There must be tons but I’m drawing a blank.

    Cheers,
    Geoff
