The Tom Waits Map, An Interactive Map of Every Location Mentioned In the Songs of Tom Waits

The Tom Waits Map

Jonas Nordström, a WordPress developer in Landskrona, Sweden, has built “The Tom Waits Map“, an incredible interactive map that plots every location mentioned in Tom Waits‘ songs. Jonas matched all of the locations to the corresponding lyrics, songs and albums, then linked the song titles to Spotify wherever possible. He’s currently accepting donations through PayPal to keep this project going.
