I knew Aberdeen was high on the list but never knew they were number 1, always thought it would be a place in Norway.

I'm pretty sure Aberdeen's oil industry has declined in recent years. I wouldn't be surprised if Norway is now outproducing Scotland.

Dallas because I think of it as being a rich city built off oil wealth.


Houston because it is sprawling city not thought of as being particularly attractive but a major city for international business and an aviation hub.


The other two were kind of random, can't really explain it other than Atlanta is a large landlocked and fairly modern city. San Francisco - Madrid, totally random, probably Lisbon or Venice would make more sense now that I think about it.
