Real Places Mentioned in Songs:

"Ride Like The Wind"
The Lyrics:
And I've got such a long way to go (Such a long way to go) To make it to the border of Mexico So, I'll ride like the wind Ride like the wind
Why:
Christopher Cross' "Ride Like The Wind" was Cross' first top ten hit, making it to #2 in the summer of 1980 (before the end of that summer he would have his first #1 with the follow-up, "Sailing"). "Ride Like The Wind" chorus makes a reference to the country of Mexico. The song cast Cross in the role of a an old west (19th century) criminal who has led "nine lives" and shot down "ten men" and now is evading the law by riding "to the border of Mexico". "Ride Like The Wind" and "Sailing" would help Christopher Cross win the Grammy in 1981 for Best New Artists (as well as couple of others, such as Record of the Year, and in the Easy Listening category), although Cross had previously written or co-written some songs for other artists.

"Arthur's Theme (The Best That You Can Do)"
The Lyrics:
When you get stuck between the moon and New York City The best that you can do is fall in love
Why:
"Arthur's Theme (The Best That You Can Do)" was the main theme song from the 1981 released motion picture (romantic comedy), "Arthur" starring the late great Dudley Moore as a spoiled rich man (inherited his wealth) who doesn't know how to deal with people on a day-to-day existence (until he meets the love of his life and his forced to change). Dudley Moore's character lived in New York City in an expensive penthouse (therefore the reference in Cross' song to that city). The Moon (again the Earth's only satellite) reference tied in with New York City in the main chorus of the song is that being stuck between the moon and New York City is like being stuck between a rock (the moon) and a hard place (New York City, which was just at that time recovering from the recession that had hit the city back in the mid-1970's). Cross' "Arthur's Theme (The Best That You Can Do)" was a #1 song on Billboard Magazine's HOT 100 charts in November 1981 knocking another movie theme, Diane Ross and Lionel Richie's "Endless Love" (from the movie starring a very young Brooke Shields) from the top spot.
