New Orleans the city of song

It doesn't take but a second to ponder how many songs not only have the name New Orleans in the title, but how many songs have New Orleans streets or Locations like West End or Milneburg? Yea, Los Angeles has it's Central Ave Breakdown, and New York has it's Broome street, 52nd street and 7th ave and of course Kansas Cit, Chicago...had there songs named after some streets, but nothing compares to New Orleans.
