Call it an addendum.MassLive readers made their voices heard and we listened. There are numerous songs about Massachusetts out there in existence. Did we make a list containing every single song? No. But we found some popular ones and compiled them into two lists.The first list can be found here: From Dropkick Murphys to Bob Dylan, these 20 songs are about MassachusettsSo, what counts as a song about Massachusetts? Does the whole song have to literally be about the state, as in Arlo Guthrie's 'Massachusetts'? Or does a reference to Boston in a verse count as well? We included songs that have references to the state, even if the entire song is not about Massachusetts.
