9:30 Coffee Break: Cities

Coffee Break
What songs do you want to hear for today's coffee break? (MPR Graphic / Tracy Kompelien)

Dr. Dre's new album, Compton, was released today via Apple Music. Just before the album's release, Dre announced he is donating all of his artist royalties from the album to fund an new performing-arts center in Compton, Calif., the city just south of downtown Los Angeles for which Dre's album is named.

And just like Dre's latest release, it turns out there are a lot of albums and songs that are named for cities.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs do you want to hear that are either a) named after a city; or b) from an album with a city title? Send us your requests.
