Long story short; I'm making a compialtion for a friend who live in Columbus, OH and I want all the songs to be either about Ohio or just mention the state or any Ohio city. The more mentions the better.

I'm just getting started but of course I plan on including Ohio by Neil Young and Cleveland Rocks by Ian Hunter. ANy other suggestions will be much appreciated. Thanks,
Paul

One of the early Devo singles (it has the chorus - 'Are we not men - We are Devo', etc. I think it's Jocko Homo, but I wouldn't swear to it). That defintely has a name check for Ohio in it.

"Down By The O-H-I-O"

This would be the coolest cut on yer disc.

Some men are searchin for the Holy Grail
But there ain't nothin sweeter 
Than riden' the rails."

Mr. Tanner, by Harry Chapin.

It's kind of a slow, sad song. But it does sound ever so lovely.

There's an instrumental by Uncle Tupelo called "Sandusky".

"Ohio" by Modest Mouse.

"Cleveland is the City" by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.

And last but not least, "Expecting" by The White Stripes with the following lyrics:

"Toledo" ("Saturday night in Toledo, Ohio, is like being nowhere at all..."). Written by Randy Sparks, but there's a great version of it by John Denver on the "Evening With..." double-live CD.

If you take all of these suggestions, it's going to be one eclectic CD!! Posted Image

Three truths about movies, as noted by Roger Ebert:

 

* It's not what a movie is about, it's how it is about it.

* No good movie is too long, and no bad movie is short enough.

* No good movie is depressing, all bad movies are depressing.

And I forgot to mention "Somewhere in Ohio" by one of my favorite bands, the Jayhawks.

Also, I guess Jewel has a song called "Cleveland".

And you should be able to find a version of "Hang on Sloopy" sung by thousands of drunk Buckeye fans,"O-H-I-O". Although your friend might hear enough of that in Columbus anyway.
