LIsted by Artist Name

These are songs with a California city or place in the title that is not Beverly Hills, Hollywood, Los Angeles, Malibu, Sacramento, San Francisco, or San Diego, all of which have their own separate lists. Those may be the California places with the most songs written about them, but there are lots more songs written about other California cities and places which are on this list. (There are even more songs that mention other places only in the lyrics, but they're not included here.)

This list includes some cities and places in the song title that are also found on the song lists that cover a wide area (Los Angeles, The Bay Area, and The Central Coast) including Laurel Canyon, Oakland, the Pacific Coast Highway, the San Fernando Valley, Santa Cruz, Santa Monica, Silverlake, the Sunset Strip, Compton, Topanga, Ventura, etc.

Listed Alphabetically by Song Title

Includes any articles at the beginning - "The" - "A" - "La" - "Los" etc.
