Excellent choice! That's such a great song.

Mine are all from one band and the solo and side projects from members of that band. (no, you don't get extra points for figuring out which band before you read on, because hell, just about everyone here knows which band I'm going to choose. )

1) A Love Letter From Sydney -- Steve Kilbey
2) Bel Air -- The Church
3) Buffalo -- The Church
4) Columbus -- The Church (my current hometown )
5) Hamburg -- Marty Willson-Piper
6) Napoleon's Army, Christmas Eve, Outside Moscow -- Steve Kilbey
7) Tel Aviv -- The Church
8) New York Buddha -- Marty Willson-Piper
9) Providence -- Jack Frost (Grant McClennan & Steve Kilbey)
10) The Saddest House in Stockholm -- Marty Willson-Piper

I thought we were supposed to pick titles with cities in them. I'm seeing titles with states and countries now.

If we could use states, countries, continents, and super continents and the like I could probably do another ten...same band and everything.

Then again I doubt anyone else really wants that....

True!

Well, hell, I know no one asked (and most will just go ), but since I don't feel like doing the other stuff I should be doing, I'm going to branch off into ten song titles with various places (cities, states, countries, continents, super continents, and planets). Same band (and solo and side projects by band members) as before.

I'm sure you're all thrilled.

1) Pangaea -- The Church
2) Atlantis -- Steve Kilbey
3) Heliopolis -- Steve Kilbey
4) China -- Steve Kilbey
5) Evil Queen of England -- Marty Willson-Piper
6) Field of Mars -- The Church
7) Texas Moon -- The Church
8) Midnite in America -- Steve Kilbey
9) Metropolis -- The Church
10) Some Lysergic Africa -- Steve Kilbey



(number 7 should get extra points for having both a state and a moon. )
