Just an real place (i.e. on planet earth - so yeah can you point to it on a map) - so no fictional/fantasy locations at the moment.
Just works, although that has already been dictated by the collection type - feel free to spin off new collections for releases, artists, poety, prose etc.
Why no xyz - that will just be because I haven’t yet checked the already submitted works for that artist yet! I add to this collection whenever I have 5 minutes free but not enough time to do any “real” work I have added these now.
On the “qualification” points - you say “monuments”, so does this include places like “Hammersmith Palais”? Ahah - I see you have already been hitting the Add button on the above list. So that answers the question.
Edit: Added another heap… a good start. Avoided “Seas” and watery places. No heaven or hell (but Hull did get in). I’m trying to add the lesser known stuff. Starting with a heap of politics as that is what’s on the decks today. (A lot of Street names that get dropped as don’t know if they are actual streets being sung about) Also song has to be properly referring to the place, not just having someone’s surname common with a place name. Anything of doubt is left out.
(Don’t give me stuff like this when I am sitting around bored… I have just added a few more pages of Works…)
Oh I didn’t know we should not include planet names and mythical names.
I remove my added mistakes (Brocéliande mythical forest, some planets including Moon, Saturn, etc.).
Can we keep Earth?
I also remove Biko (Peter Gabriel), it’s not a place, it’s a person.
Yeah, I would vote to keep out the stuff we can’t pin on a map. Too many planets and mythical options. That needs a separate Universe list.
I have stuck to the “can I put a pin on a map” when adding these. A useful simple rule to help focus.
Whoops - that would be me. I probably clicked on him in error when adding Sun City. I had the page open when following down the rabbit hole. Thanks for spotting (I know who he is and needed to get Sun City in).
What I have found interesting is how some artists never mention a place in their whole career. Then you look at a Bob Dylan and he seems to have eaten a map. (I ran away from his list after a brief glance… he loves places)
Haha - know the feeling… I don’t dare look at the main list as I know far too many of those links will be purple. Any fun excuse to poke around my music collection.
The Christmas In… songs are a clever thought. Wonder what gave you that idea? (Wow - 108,000!)
If you’re adding those Weird Al paraody songs it will mean I’ll need to add these: Terry Garoghan - Works - MusicBrainz Almost every song of his is about the city of Brighton and named after streets and districts… Maybe do that list another day
