song map from rough trade

Post by sebmelmoth2003 »

A map of the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland made up entirely from the titles of over 1,400 songs.

Our new vintage style map will take you on a musical trip across the U.K. and Ireland using the titles of popular songs that reference the cities, towns, rivers, mountains and landmarks of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland.

Featuring songs such as Let England Shake (PJ Harvey), London Calling (The Clash), Glasgow Mega-Snake (Mogwai), Sunshine On Leith (The Proclaimers), Edinburgh Man (The Fall), Rose of Aberdeen (Simon & Garfunkel), Hebridean Sun (Vashti Bunyan), Cardiff In the Sun (Super Furry Animals), Cardiff Afterlife (Manic Street Preachers), Newport State of Mind (Goldie Looking Chain), Green Green Grass of Home (Tom Jones), Belfast Child (Simple Minds), Alternative Ulster (Stiff Little Fingers), Dublin City Sky (Fontaines D.C), Galway Gal (Ed Sheehan), Oxford Comma (Vampire Weekend), Bristol to London (Tricky), Birmingham Blues (Electric Light Orchestra), Leeds Road 3AM (New Model Army), Sheffield: Sex City (Pulp), Going Down to Liverpool (The Bangles), Strawberry Fields Forever (The Beatles), Mersey Paradise (The Stone Roses), Madchester Rave On (Happy Mondays) and London 0 Hull 4 (The Housemartins) …okay okay we know the last two aren't singles but we couldn't resist.
