Borneo ain't no city.



Neither is Japan. Technically, Japan isn't even mentioned in the song, due to its lack of lyrics. I think some license for interpretation is due, given all geographical locations are simply convenient, though often arbitrary, labels used to distinguish one place from another.

ZZZ...

Similar situation for Warszawa and Neukoln.

A few more -

Petunia Green (mentioned as the "town in which I lived" in Silver Treetop School for Boys but quite possibly a fictional village).

Soho (night life district mentioned in The London Boys).

Oxford, NJ (again mentioned in the outtakes - "I gave up flogging in Oxford").

Hollywood and Sunset and Vine (from Cracked Actor. The latter is a street intersection in Hollywood)

Amlapura (the largest city in East Bali and the capital of the Karangasem region).

Ibiza (a holiday city in Spain I believe)

Norfolk (an area or town in England)

An island and a city on that island. Noted for it's dance scene, and to some weirder people for the fact Mike Oldfield lives there.

God - I am sharing my favourite island with Mike Oldfield . But as he prefers moonlight shadows and I rather go for Ibiza's fantastic sunsets we probably won't meet.

Nena (99 Red Balloons) has a house fairly close to where I normally stay on the island though I have never actually seen here around. And Keke Rosberg lives in Ibiza as well, Finland's former Formula 1 World Champion. You must remember him, Sysiyo.
