Berlin album at
Lou Reed's, "Smalltown"
The Lyrics:
Where did Picasso come from
There's no Michelangelo coming from Pittsburgh
I hate being odd in a small town
If they star let them stare in New York City
at this pink eyed painting albino
How far can my fantasy go?
I'm no Dali coming from Pittsburgh
No adorable lisping Capote
Pittsburgh, PA (hometown of Andy Warhol, who the song is about
New York City - Warhol's adopted home

Lou Reed's, "Take a Walk on the Wild Side"

"Holly came from Miami F.L.A...."
Well. There's another Yank demonstrating his knowledge of his own postal system. At least we know Mr. Reed can mail a letter to Florida.
