hmm, oh well. It looks cool but is it useful information?
Has anybody done a map of all the places that come up in Beatles songs?

I think it's actually pretty cool. It shows how simple some of their albums (especially their first) were and how complex others were. It looks like Sgt. Pepper's and the White Album were the most complex musically. They also happen to be two of my favorite albums along with Rubber Soul and Revolver.
