Die Moldau zieht voran
nimmt jeden Mann
der blutend ins Gewässer fällt
mit Freudentränen an

Songs & Places

Songs & Places is a website of songs with place names and nothing but place names as titles. Every song on the site can be listened to on Spotify. To listen, click a song title or a green disc like this , and you will be taken to a song page with an embedded Spotify player.

Then and now

The precursor to this site was a comment thread on Facebook started for fun among family in December 2012, where we set one hundred titles as a goal. We reached that easily, of course, and soon after that I began this website. A more ambitious goal of 500 titles was reached on 12 August, 2016.
