Placename Songs (Around the World)

Simple - list any song that contains a placename in the title. Try to mention the artist and (optionally) include a clip (i.e, youtube or such)

I'll start out:

Massachusetts - The Bee Gees (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mc5oqjFsT5g)
Massachusetts - Arlo Guthrie (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNc0VCfKuck)
Massachusetts - Aaron Lewis (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g22LRQ6un-M)

See the utility of mentioning the artist too as all these are different songs called Massachusetts by different artists. Anyway, let's see how many we can come up with and try not to repeat the ones others have already mentioned. As a game goal - We try to visit as many countries as possible around the world in song titles! More importantly, just have some fun with it!

Tupelo Honey - Van Morrison (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eq3YLhtuzTQ)

The title derives from the mild-tasting Tupelo honey in the southeastern United States, derived from the flowers of the genus of Tupelo trees, but Tupelo is also city in Mississippi.
