New York City Skyline

From Frank Sinatra to Drake, popular entertainers have always incorporated city names into their songs—or even written entire songs as paeans to those cities. Not surprisingly, New York is the most sung-about metropolis in the world, making an appearance in 161 songs since the 1960s, according to data commissioned by Celebrity Cruises. London comes in second, being featured in 102 songs, while Los Angeles, Paris and Miami round out the top five. The data was used to create an interactive digital map searchable by artist, location, genre and decade that can be found at celebritycruises.co.uk/music-mapped.
