No no no - the appropriate Tom Waits song is 'Going Out West'.

Also, Riviera's 'Friends In California'. That's a no-brainer.

Morrissey: "Glamorous Glue" (We look to Los Angeles/ for the language we use)

And if you're going to use any Red Hot Chili Peppers, it has to be old Chili Peppers.

Frank Black - Los Angeles
I wanna live in Los Angeles, not the one in Los Angeles

Neil Young - L.A.
This is from Time Fades Away so it's a little harder to track down, but I think Buddyhead was hosting tracks from TFA not too long ago. May still be there.
