Re: Pronunciation of New Orleans as :"New Or-leens." Nothing hilarious about it at all. Most north Louisianans, i.e. people living north of New Orleans and the Cajun French country, pronounce it that way, or as "New Or-luns." "N'awlins" is used only by New Orleans natives or tourists.

Well schillid, this track got the judges up and dancing, but they said these places can't go on the list because they're not on the official studio version.

Thanks schillid, but the judges rejected it. Something about "it's a descriptor of the lineman, not a direct reference to the place itself." They're brutal. I pointed out to them that we have Harlem Shuffle on the list and they said "remove that too". Ouch.

I would vote to remove cover versions and unreleased material.

That's not a bad idea. Unless there are strong objections from anyone, I'll do that when I post the next list.

P.S. It's interesting how the previous generation of songwriters (Bobby Troup, Chuck Berry, etc) often piled so many place names in their songs!

I strongly object. Rocky of Dijon gets his way all the time. Enough, I say!

Actually...sure, sounds like a plan.

Bakersfield (far away eyes)

If you're from Europe...and doing a roadtrip in the USA.
And you drive 3 hours the wrong direction,
with the only goal just to drive through Bakersfield...

Is that weird? confused smiley

You still missed Hal(l)iburton (where life is good) - or does this refer to a company by that name?

Maybe you weren't listening to gospel music on the colored radio station?

I would have thought the US would have had the most references. Didn't even see the US on the map though.
