In celebration of the journey Pauline and I are making in the next month, I have decided to do a list of songs about California. It wasn’t a hard list to make and will probably end up being my Christmas theme cd. So here they are in no particular order:

The Beach Boys – California Girls
The Eagles – Hotel California
The Rentals – California
The Ramones – California Sun
The Propellorheads – Take California
The Mama’s and Papa’s – California Dreamin’
(what is it with bands starting with “the” and california)
Joni Mitchell – California
REM – Remember California
Everclear – Like a Californian King
Tupac – California Love
Pink – Goin to California
Led Zepplin – Goin to California
Stereophonics – Plastic California
Albert Hammond – It never rains in Southern California
Liz Phair – California
Gomez – California
Sophie B Hawkins – California here I come
The Queers – Goodbye California
Kings of Leon – California waiting
Billy Bragg & Wilco – California Stars

This must be something about this state, and I can’t wait to find out what it is!!!
