    Default Challenge Idea: Map a Song

    Ok, a lot of songs are written about a place or a journey...

    The Final Countdown by Europe - probably would be a sci-fi map
    Hotel California - (Already been done in a previous challenge)
    Highway to Hell by ACDC - I don't know but it would probably have some good intentions along the way.
    Caught In a Web by Dream Theatre - A spider's lair?
    Margarita ville - Oh come on now..

    I think you get the point, pick a song and create a map as you interpret it. Seems like it would generate some interesting entries.

    Puff the Magic Dragon approves cuz he doesn't know what Honnahleah looks like...he can't even spell it either. He's a dragon.

    Warning from prior experience: the song you choose will be stuck in your head for a month. Still, I'd do another one in a heartbeat.

    That's right, you were the one who did the Hotel California based map, hehe.

    Is it too late to say I love the idea? I'd so love to map the inn where Loreena McKennitt's "The Highwayman" takes place! The whole scenery is described so vividly!
    The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees, the moon was a ghostly galleon tossed upon cloudy seas, the road was a ribbon of moonlight, looping the purple moor, and a highwayman came riding, riding, riding, a highwayman came riding up to the old inn door...
    Now that the warm fuzzy part is over we can get back to the ritual dismemberments. Oh wait, it's not Tuesday is it?

    That would be a great fit Aelyn. Wow, nice choice.
