then go find that chinese city and find how many songs there are about it...eusebius said:so we're only considering tracks on compact discs rather than songs, are we?
it's just maths and as for genuine songs;
most heavily populated part of the world throughout history; probably China. Thus logic has it a Chinese city would the one. While European cities like Rome, Cologne, Paris, London, Moscow, Istanbul, Berlin, Amsterdam, Dublin, Danzig, Guernica, Barcelona or Athens would fill most of the top 40.
Not too sure about this one. Jimi was quoted as saying he wrote that song about a particular woman and there is no hint in the lyrics about any city in particular.Meditt said:Jimi Hendrix's "Crosstown Traffic" is about that city,
umm.. but the video featured mostly New York City's crazy streets footage.. and I've read somewhere that that song was related to NYC..Justme said:Not too sure about this one.

Considering he was living in London at the time he wrote that song (and it was London where he created his fame, London where he changed his name from Jimmie to Jimi, wrote and recorded his best material, and London where he died), it could be deduced that if any city was on his mind at the time, logic would presume it was London.
As are "Guns of Brixton" and "First Night Back in London" by The ClashMeditt said:Citrus... "London Calling" is from The Clash, not The Calling
and since you're elaborating a London list, you can add "London's Burning" also from The Clash...
