#TBT: 10 Songs About San Francisco (That Aren't by Tony Bennett), 1850-1977

At some point we've all sung along to Scott Mackenzie's hippie anthem, "If You're Going to San Francisco," and to Tony Bennett's "I Left My Heart in San Francisco," but there are several tunes that pay tribute to our Paris of the West.

Take a listen and learn the lyrics to these other songs about SF. And go ahead, sing along!


"San Francisco," Maxime Le Forestier, 1972

It is a blue house
Adjacent to the hill
We walk there, we do not knock
Those who live there have thrown away the key
We meet together
After years of journey
And one comes to sit around the meal
Everyone is there, at five o'clock in the evening

San Francisco gets foggy
San Francisco lights up
San Francisco, where are you
Liza and Luc, Sylvia, wait for me...

It is a blue house
Hooked to my memory
We walk there, we do not hit
Those who live there have thrown away the key
People with long hair
Large beds and music
Populated with light, and populated by madmen
She will be the last to stand
If San Francisco collapses
If San Francisco collapses
San Francisco! Where are you
Liza and Luc, Sylvia, wait for me
