Can you recommend songs about Washington and/or Seattle that portray it in a non-negative light?

I just moved away from California last month and realized recently that one of the things that makes me most wistful about leaving is that I keep listening to and thinking about songs about my old city and state...just because they happen to be some of my favorite songs.
The only Seattle song I know offhand is "Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge on Seattle"...not exactly a ringing endorsement. And I visited people in Olympia last weekend and had Hole's "Rock Star" stuck in my head the whole time. I know there have to be some songs out there that portray positive (or, like...at least neutral!) feelings about my new region! Please recommend your favorites.
