We're fond of research, apparently...

There are three counties that pop up: Cumberland's got The Grateful Dead's "Cumberland Blues" on the classic "Workingman's Dead" album (1970). For Lincoln county, there's "Hot Rod Lincoln" by Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen (1971), while Washington shows up as "To Washington" on John Mellencamp's "Trouble No More" (2003).

We weren't expecting East Millinocket or Skowhegan, but how about these towns (in alphabetical order):

Bath - "Bath" by Harry Nilsson ("Aerial Ballet" LP, 1974)

Caribou - Okay, it's not a song, but it is the title of Elton John's 8th studio album (1974)

China - "China Girl" by David Bowie ("Let's Dance", 1984)

Denmark - "Denmark Street" by The Kinks ("Lola Vs. Powerman", 1970)

Madison - "Madison Blues" by George Thorogood & The Destroyers (Self-titled debut, 1977)

Mexico - The clear winner with the most mentions! There's "Down In Mexico" by The Coasters (Self-titled Lp, 1956); "Goin' Down To Mexico" by ZZ Top ("ZZ Top's First Album", 1971); "Going To Mexico" - The Steve Miller Band ("Number 5", 1970); "Mexico" by Firefall (Self-titled debut LP, 1976, the one with "You Are The Woman"); "Mexico" by Jefferson Airplane ("Early Flight" compilation, 1974); and "Mexico" - James Taylor ("Gorilla", 1975)

Paris - "Free Man In Paris" by Joni Mitchell ("Court And Spark", 1974), and then there's the title track to John Cale's "Paris (1919)" (from 1973).

Portland - "Portland, Maine" by Tim McGraw ("Sundown Heaven Town", 2014). We know, it's not classic rock but we couldn't help ourselves.

Rockville - "(Don't Go Back To) Rockville" by R.E.M. ("Reckoning", 1984)

Unity - "Unity" by Desmond Dekker & The Aces ("Action!" LP, 1967). You remember these reggae-ska masters from the 1968 hit "Israelites".

It all comes down to where you live, so what can you add to the list for future as-yet-to-be-determined plans...?
