Thanks, Phil! I added the second two, the first two are already on the list.

It occurs to me, Phil, that you have teenage kids. Ask them what artists they listen to that have songs with songplaces in them... we need some current artists to put up. :)

It's been a very, very busy October for me - good and bad. Good that it's good for business, bad that it takes a while to update stuff sometimes. But here's the latest!

"Mendocino" ~ Sir Douglas Quintet

Sin City- Flying Burrito Brothers

On Broadway - The Drifters

This is maybe a little obscure!

Bjuröklubb is a place in northern Sweden.

Laleh is a very popular singer here and this is one of her most popular songs.

Bjurö Klubb

I was out on Bjuröklubb and I looked at the beach

And the waves were crawling and I waded into the night

Oh yes, I was a winner around water

Oh yes, I was a winner

Oh, I promise, guess what I found along the water

A blue whale has raged around the beaches, he said he knew me

He said: I have seen you when you were walking

Every night you're thinking out loud and waving arms

It said: I am a blue whale, I can take you from here

From your deserted island, from your paper and pencils

You are a loser, but you can hide in my mouth

A human is not heavy to carry

For what will become of you

What will become of you, hey

Yes, what will become of me

But what will become of you

It said: What will become of you, hey

Yes, what will become of me

But what should you be

But what should you be

But what should you be

But what should you be

Yes, what will become of me

I said: If you eat me up I'll get my brothers

And I'll tell, tell-tell on you from death

And I'll write letters to your near and dear

And say that you are fooling people that are sometimes sad

That you are fooling people that are sometimes sad

And they fool people that are, that are, that are, that are,

I am already a winner

What will become of you

What will become of you, hey

Yes, what will become of me

But what will become of you

It said: What will become of you, hey

Yes, what will become of me

But what should you be

But what should you be

But what should you be

But what should you be

Yes, what will become of me

I said, Blue Whale

Oh oh, we are already free

Oh oh, we are saved and free

What will become of you

What will become of you, hey

Yes, what will become of me

But what will become of you

It said: What will become of you, hey

Yes, what will become of me

But what should you be

But what should you be

But what should you be

But what should you be

Yes, what will become of me

I said, I'm out on Bjuröklubb and I look at the beach

And the waves are crawling and I wade into the night

Oh yes, I'm a winner around the water

A winner

Already a winner

What will become of you

What will become of you

What will become of you

What will become of me

A winner

A winner

It is the winner

Winner

Naturally - Kalapana

On O'ahu, Makapu'u and "hang glider" go together. I read somewhere that this song is a memorial/tribute to one who crashed and no longer needs wings to fly.

Russian Hill - Jellyfish (Russian Hill is in San Fransisco)

I dreamt about a tranquil Sunday drive

A sensory lullaby

We trade the comics, cartoons, and magazines

For pistons and gasoline

We see the road from the bedside

Parked under the sunshine

We feel the warmth of the engine so we climb inside

And take it to the motorway

Watch the clouds turn into faces it's fun to play

Shift the gears for years and age a single day

Until we spill onto Russian Hill

Past cathedrals filled with God's favorite guests

Dirty hands feel clean when dressed in their Sunday best

Treeline village oh so heavenly

Cross a bridge of gold to landscapes of juniper

Only Eden is for millionaires

Watch the clouds turn into faces its fun to play

Shift the gears for years and age a single day

Until we spill onto Russian Hill

I'm pulling through the last stoplight

We head home past the shoreline

And through the rear view mirror it all melts away

'Til we're helpless

Watch the clouds turn into faces its fun to play

(We're hopeless)

We shift the gears for years and age a single day

(It fades away)

For like curtains close this sunset matinee

A dream fulfilled on Russian Hill
