I'm looking for songs which have street names in their title.

So far i have 'Penny Lane', 'Baker Street' and 'Across 110th street'.

Wilson Pickett's "Funky Broadway"
Dire Straits' "Telegraph Road"
Steve Earle's "Copperhead Road" and "Hillbilly Highway"

There are probably thousands of such songs - these popped to the top of my head faster than I could type them

Blue Jay Way, in Hollywood Hills (Los Angeles), California, was an issue. People kept stealing the sign. Even before the Beatles song, it dead ended into moderately sized cul-de-sac, with a great view. The home owners there eventually blocked the view, but Lookout Mountain Ave still has the same great view where it uturns directly above the Blue Jay Way cul-de-sac.

The English equivelent to Route 66 is the M25.Get your kicks on the M25 has a much nicer ring to it.
