What is your list of the 15 best songs that are about cities in the US?

Rule: Name of the city must be in the title of the song and it cannot be about a street, park, or neighborhood.

Here is my list, in no particular order:

Viva Las Vegas - Elvis Presley

Memphis - Chuck Berry

New York, New York - Frank Sinatra

Allentown - Billy Joel

Please Come To Boston - Dave Loggins

Streets Of Philadelphia - Bruce Springsteen

Wichita Lineman - Glen Campbell

L.A. Woman - The Doors

(I Left My Heart) In San Francisco - Tony Bennett

Moon Over Miami - George Shearing

The Night Chicago Died - Paper Lace

By The Time I Get To Phoenix - Glen Campbell

Walking In Memphis - Marc Cohn

Philadelphia Freedom - Sir Elton John

Autumn In New York - Frank Sinatra
