So.................what's your fave song about a " real " place. I don't care if it's a town or city or whatever. As long as the place actually exists.

Here we go with my fave. Solsbury Hill, Somerset England.

The person who wrote this song for the Monkees was from West Orange where I live. It is named after Pleasant Valley Way which runs in the valley through town.

Great thread! Here's one about the Choctaw Ridge in Mississippi. Won a best song Grammy. Lol, her jeans in the photo bring back memories. We used to buy our Levi's and wear them in a hot soaking bath to shrink them to our shape. She started the trend.

My Dad's cousin....not that I've ever met him.

Shame the video has absolutely no relevance to the river Chris Rea is singing about.



Here's some friends of mine.....grew up with all of them. The drummer lived next door to me for quite a few years and we spent hours listening to punk, drinking cider and just hanging around.
The song is about the town we live in and the video shows parts of the council estate we all grew up in and a 'well known' pub in the town centre.
