And she'll leave all the smog behind
As the 747 starts to climb away
In the big sky
And the Virgin Atlantic life
Will banish all the fear and all the strife
As it takes her to Londres

Songs & Places

Songs & Places is a website of songs with place names and nothing but place names as titles. Every song on the site can be listened to on Spotify. To listen, click a song title or a green disc like this , and you will be taken to a song page with an embedded Spotify player.

Then and now

The precursor to this site was a comment thread on Facebook started for fun among family in December 2012, where we set one hundred titles as a goal. We reached that easily, of course, and soon after that I began this website. A more ambitious goal of 500 titles was reached on 12 August, 2016.
