A world map marked with locales Tom Waits has sung about

There’s something about the power of music: it transforms you to a whole different place from where you physically are. Then there are the actual places that the tunes are composed for, or make mention of. The Tom Waits Map, made by Swedish Waits fan Jonas Nordström, takes that idea and runs with it right across the world map with a pin on every geographic location that Waits has sung about. Obviously, we love it.
