I'm going to ask you once more, politely, to PLEASE stop responding to my posts. I made a light-hearted comment about the OP including California as a city, and you want to argue about it. I've reported this to the moderators, but I would also like you to just stop it on your own.

Seattle, as referred to above, many album tracks...but only a couple of "hits"...

"Seattle" Perry Como
"Jet City Woman" Queensryche

And if you play them back to back it is REALLY COOL!

I know the song isn't specifically about Indy, but I couldn't resist - it's the first thing that came to mind.

"God didn't make little green apples
And it don't rain in Indianapolis in the summertime..."
