Simple one. Name an album, song title, or lyric which contains the name of a street. Doesn’t have to be an actual street but must be in the form of an actual street. So “boulevard of broken dreams is out” but Rue Morgue Avenue – from Dylan’s “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues,” performed in the video by Nina Simone just because I stumbled upon it and like it – is in.

Standard rules. One entry at a time. Decision of the judge is final.

  1. Where you’re likely to find Bob Seger: Main Street.

  2. Which raises a question I’ll answer before it is asked. An street name can be used only once. There must be dozens of songs with Main Street in it but that’s off the table now.
