LA - "All I Wanna Do" by Sheryl Crow -- maybe just because I was living there when it came out, but it captures that mood of frenetic languor that has always meant LA to me.

San Francisco - there isn't really a song about SF that isn't either schmaltzy, outdated (e.g. the "flowers in your hair" song) and/or totally lame.

It's classic but still good. That style of music has also seen a resurgence of popularity with the hipster crowd so I say it still fits even in 2013.
