Lets not forget the brilliant Jefferson Airplane entry "Stairway to Cleveland"
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!

I’m surprised to see that nobody has mentioned Massachusetts by the Bee Gees...
I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand...

With the resent passing of Ray Charles I'm surprised nobody mentioned "Georgia".
Also, don't Forget "Seattle". Never made the charts but then most songs don't.

Yep, I found myself humming that tune earlier this week for some strange reason.

Lyrics:
Feel I'm goin' back to Massachusetts
Something's telling me I must go home
And the lights all went down in Massachusetts
The day I left her standing on her own

Tried to hitch a ride to San Francisco
Gotta do the things I wanna do
And the lights all went down in Massachusetts
They brought me back to see my way with you

Talk about the life in Massachusetts
Speak about the people I have seen
And the lights all went down in Massachusetts
And Massachusetts is one place I have seen

I will remember Massachusetts
I will remember Massachusetts
I will remember Massachusetts
