A Song to create Geocoordinates to

Post-punk goodness: Wire singing "41°N 93°W"

It's all about cartography - imposing grids of latitude and longitude on the landscape.

"Interrupting my train of thought
Lines of longitude and latitude
Define and refine my altitude"

The coordinates of the song's title are very appropriate - they lead to an area divided into the square sections created in the 1800s.

The Basement Geographer has much more, including the full lyrics, and maps of the coordinates. I recommend taking a look.
