California on My Mind


This week, I’ve got California on my mind. With quite a few programs heading out west in less than three months, I guess that’s a good thing!

So, I searched for a list of songs about California and found this great Wikipedia article.

Some of the songs I have heard of, other’s are a true mystery; however, I’ve listened to quite a few of them and have compiled my Top 10 list below (they are in no particular order!).
