I’m standing, observing, cruising,
Star-bright crystals are forming
We both know what we’ve got to do
Head back to where the magic grew
Come on, let’s go
Back to Moscow

Songs & Places

Songs & Places is a website of songs with place names and nothing but place names as titles. All songs are playable on Spotify or YouTube, though not all have links to the sites yet.

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.
