PostSubject: Locations in Gaslight lyrics - help?   Wed Jun 20, 2012 10:04 am

Hi! I'm trying to note all the locations that are mentioned in Gaslights' songs, (Santa Ana and Austin are mentioned in Backseats, 7th Ave mentioned in Here's Looking at You Kid etc etc). Can you post a reply reply with any that you know of and the songs they're associated with! Thank you :-)

jersey references off the top of my head:
wooderson - "you see this town pulls my heartstrings, i fell in love with the shrewsbury stars"
we came to dance - "if the big bomb drops down, over this quiet edison sky."
diamond church street choir - "all the hub city girls and the ribbons and their curls" (hub city is a nickname for new brunswick, nj)
blue jeans - little eden, cookman, etc.

"And I drive the 101 on the California night/ And I'm amazed at the stars beneath that old Hollywood sign." - "Meet Me By the River's Edge". The 101 is a highway that runs along the Pacific Coast.

"I've been down at Biloxi Parish, and that's good enough for me." - an area in New Orleans. Asbury is also mentioned in "Biloxi Parish".

A quick Google session taught me there is a Vine St in Jersey City as well.

I remember watching an acoustic version of owl where Brian said the song was about this girl and him who would race their cars down the parkway ( I believe he said parkway - its been awhile) So anyone know of vine streets around there?

Otherwise jersey city makes the most sense.
