Ah! You went the about-California rather than from-LA route. Good choices!

Check out the new "Move To California" by Times New Viking. And there's always the anti-LA Death Cab for Cutie song, "Why You'd Want To Live Here." And "California One/Youth & Beauty Brigade" is my favorite ever Decemberists song.

Thanks Cary! Oh yeah, an anti-LA song would be awesome. These are songs that were all in my collection, that's how they made it here.

And these mixes are different from the lists for the GrassRoutesTravel books, which is music from the city. But yes, easily mixed up. :)

My picks: "California Stars" by Billy Bragg and Wilco. "California Wine" by Heybale. For a silly song - "Hollywood Freaks" by Beck. "Hollywood" by Cranberries. "Whittier Blvd." by Thee Midniters!

Hollywood freaks is on there! Phew! You freaked me out for a second that I forgot it.
