Throwback Thursday Part 50

In 1816 Gioacchino Rossini's opera "Barber of Seville" premieres in Rome. Therefore today's Throwback Thursday is to songs that have a city in their title.

But first, the excerpt from the opera that started this thread:

Largo et Factotum by baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky:

Scott McKenzie - San Francisco

Tori Amos - Juarez

 Arlo Guthrie - City of new Orleans

The Fray - Munich

Boney M. - Belfast Stereo

The Clash - London Calling

They Might Be Giants - Istanbul (not Constantinople)

Murray Head - One Night in Bangkok


Abba - Waterloo

Elvis Presley - Viva Las Vegas

Fats Domino - Detroit City Blues

And of course, the one, the only, the crazy - SuJu KRY!
