    Growly-voiced musician Tom Waits has never been shy about name-checking places in his song lyrics. He left Waukegan at the slammin' of the door, walked from Natchez to Hushpukena, and got a telephone call from Istanbul. Waits fan Jonas Nordström has created an interactive world map of locations mentioned in Waits' songs. You can explore the Tom Waits Map via the map interface, through an alphabetical list of place names, or by an alphabetical list of songs. Greenland is devoid of mentions.
