queen of...?

Please point me at songs whose titles are "Queen of *" -- Queen of Hearts is obvious, Queen of New Orleans is another (if you're a Bon Jovi fan). If the queen in the title can somehow be tidily related to a city (preferably but not necessarily a U.S. city), all the better: Queen of Hearts could be pretty clearly tied to Las Vegas, for instance, and in fact JBJ's QoNO is really *too* obvious, though Queen of Mardi Gras, which is apparently also a song title, isn't actually much better, which is a shame, because for what I'm thinking of, New Orleans is too good a city to pass up. Queen of Angels might refer to LA, f'rex (and does, in Greg Bear's book, and not that I know a song titled that, but that's not the point).

Why, yes, I am flicking, but it's *advanced* flicking: a handful of satisfactory titles will provide me with the bone structure for The Queen City Trilogy, not that I have any idea when I'll write them or who I'll pitch them to.

Yeah, all right, back to work. Another 500 words puts me at quota and later I'll see if I can whip up a word war or two in order to push past that...
