The Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum has released a list of songs which include "Memphis" in their lyrics.
It had been long rumored, ever since Muddy Waters was "Going Back to Memphis" and long before Marc Cohn and others were "Walking in Memphis," that the city known for the birth of rock & roll and soul music had the distinction of being included in the lyrics of more recorded songs than any other city on the planet (think not? prove it!). Since that time the list has amplified to over 1,000 commercially recorded songs and over 800 distinct titles.
To any up and coming bands, get back in the recording studio, and get on our list! If you know of others which should be added, click here and let us know.
Here is the list:
