Not everybody buys the California Dream. This is a list of songs that mention some of the negatives, taken from the main list of songs that mention California. Sometimes it's about unhappiness because someone moved there leaving the singer behind. Sometimes the singer misses someone left behind. Sometimes it's the traffic, the lack of definite seasons, the weather, the smog, plastic surgery, etc. Sometimes it's because the dream turned out to be a nightmare.
