A Little Help From My Friends

Okay, I’m stumped.  I thought this would be easy but I’ve hit a audio mental block.  I started another playlist on FineTune which has to have song titles, song lyrics, or names of groups/artists that have a geographic location in the name.  Doesn’t mean the song has to be about that place just include it (e.g. China by Tori Amos isn’t about the country of China).

Here is what I have so far but I need 19 more tracks before it’s playable.  HELP!

Ventura Highway
Tin Man

Only Time will Tell
Sole Survivor

The Beatles
