I’m trying to compile a list of tunes from all eras with some connection to California. They don’t have to be explicitly about California (Like the Red Hot Chili pepper’s “Californication”) nor do they have to be from a certain era or genre of music.
The ones I’ve compiled so far:
Hotel California - the Eagles
Going Back to Cali - LL Cool J
Free Fallin’ - Tom Petty (In the song it says "…it’s a long day, livin’ in Reseda/Move west down Ventura Boulevard…)
California Dreamin’ - The Mamas and the Papas
California Girls - the Beach Boys (and most other songs by them)
Sausalito Summer Nights - Diesel
