Your bike in front of ... a song


Kilometre nibbler
Here's an idea for an occasional photo challenge. Maybe it will work, maybe it will sink without trace.

Picture your bike somewhere named in a song.

This doesn't necessarily have to be a boundary sign, but it could be. It just has to be a specific location that is named in the title or lyrics of a song. And it doesn't have to be in the UK.

Edit: Or indeed it could be an abstract concept, so for Waterloo Sunset you could have Waterloo Bridge or a sunset. But preferably both.

So you could have your bike in front of: A Winchester boundary sign or even Winchester Cathedral itself ("Winchester Cathedral" by The New Vaudeville Band); A München boundary sign, or in the Marienplatz ("New York, London, Paris, Munich" - "Pop Muzik" by M); a Swindon sign or landmark ("Crashing down upon the roofs of Swindon Town" - "Red Brick Dream" by XTC)

Post a picture of your bike in front of (or just in or at) the place, and provide an excerpt of the lyrics and a bit about the song. Maybe a youtube link, or some other link if such exists - and if you can be bothered. As much or as little as you like.

Perhaps poems too, or pieces of classical music. But not books/novels/plays/paintings (unless there's a song in them). That would be a separate thread I think.

No strict rules or anything like that. No problems with posting things that you or other people have already posted, either places or songs. Duplicates are fine. Just have a picture of your bike and a place from a song. The only real rules being: there has to be a specific reference to that place name in the song/piece of music/poem and your bike has to be pictured there.

What do you think? Will it work?
