These are all flavors of R&B songs that mention California, taken from the main list of songs that mention California. Originally used to describe music marketed to urban African Americans in the 1940s, the term R&B, short for "rhythm and blues," is now a very broad genre of popular music that encompasses a wide variety of sub-genres, including soul, funk, disco, doo-wop, smooth jazz, ska, reggae, hip-hop, alternative R&B and more. You'll mostly find songs with soul and funk roots represented here but some of the funkier G-funk hip-hop songs are here also, as well as on the Hip-Hop list. This is also where I'll put any Ska and Reggae California songs. Disco songs have been put on the electronic dance music list, but some might also show up here if they're funky enough.
