Oh man. Well, if you can get it up and running(send those folks a complaint!) I'm moving to this room today http://turntable.fm/space_place . I like the name better. I'll be starting with some Sun Ra, then "Chapel Hill" by Sonic Youth (town I"m from) onto "Welcome to New York City" by Cam'ron (current city). I'd like someone from cartotalk to take it from there. Perhaps include a song with the name of your town in it!

I guess my taste in music can be summed up as "angry men from London". So let's see:
A Bomb In Wardour Street - The Jam
Bhindi Bhagee - Joe Strummer & The Mescaleroes (references "the high road" and the types of food and music to be found there, personally I think Kilburn High Road fits the bill quite nicely)
Waterloo Sunset - The Kinks
Guns Of Brixton - The Clash
Green Fields - The Good, The Bad And The Queen (references Goldhawk Road)
Stardom In Acton - Pete Townshend

I've long been wanting to do a map of London with the locations referenced in my favourite songs marked out. Or locations of important rock events...

Whateever turntable is it doesnt work in Canada

The song for me is that is most closest to my life in maps is Johnny Cash's "I've been everywhere'

Even did my own version!
