Seems to me that Jerusalem passes the 1001 y. limit with flying honors (around 1000 B.C. )
On this site only we have four songs about Jerusalem:
Gad Elbaz - אם אשכחך ירושלים (Im eshkaheh Yerushalaim)
Alexander Listengort - הנה שוב עכשיו אני בירושלים (Hine shuv ahshav ani beYerushalaim)
Sarit Hadad - ירושלים האחרת (Yerushalaim HaAkheret)
Naomi Shemer - Yerushalayim shel Zahav (ירושלים של זהב)

You could find some songs about Derbent on YT. This city is 5000+ years old.
it would be cool if you will arrange your collection starting from the oldest.

Yes, cool, but might open a door to politically fueled bickering, I d rather stay out of such temptations.

[@wisigoth] А почему добавили страницу исполнителя, а не страницу самой песни?

Не могу найти исполнителя и пара слов в тексте есть непонятных в последней строфе...
...
Словно море лугов и пашен
Переменам великим рад.
??? свершеньям нашим Ради славы свершеньям нашим ???
Гордо высится Создаль-град!
