The Mamas & The Papas', "California Dreaming"
The Lyrics:
California dreaming, on such a winter's day.
Speaks of the U.S. state of California, a real place despite all the time that some spend just dreaming of it.

The Mamas & The Papas', "Twelve Thirty (Young Girls Are Coming To...)"
The Lyrics:
I used to live in New York City.
Everything there was dark and dirty.
Refers to New York City. [Note: The Song's full name is "Twelve Thirty (Young Girls Are Coming To The Canyon)", but that won't entirely fit in the space provided for "Song Name".] Is this bizarre, or what? The "security code" that came up was "XNY" -- like could mean "Ex New Yorker". Must be "some kind of sign"!
