CRAIG DAVID has made Southampton one of the worlds most sung about places.

Global travel company Celebrity Cruises teamed up with data scientists and music experts to create the first interactive music map.

The study analysed more than 200,000 songs to discover places around the world mentioned in songs since the 1960s.

R&B artist Craig David pushed Southampton onto the list, with his song 'One More Time' with the lyric "Southampton I was raised in the days."

The top five most referenced places in the UK were Liverpool, Brixton, Dover and Belfast according to the research.

The map can be viewed at and is filterable by genre, decade and artist. It is the largest collection of song and geographic data publicly available providing a look at how references to places around the world in music has changed based on genre and decade.
