Interactive Google Maps Mashup - Places Mentioned In Bob Dylan Lyrics

It's Bob Dylan's world, we're only living in it.  With each passing year, I'm thrilled to see the tons of innovative tributes that pop up around his birthday.  Here's a feature that belongs with the best.

The folks at Slate have mined his Songbook for references to places and plotted each on on a map of the world.  Some locations are more precise that others (getting down to the specific street or address), but clicking on a marker gets you the lyrical reference, location and the song details, including links to listen via Spotify, buy via Amazon, or just read the full lyrics. Don't forget to use the zoom function -- there's even handy links in the corner to blow up NYC, NOLA & Europe.

Click the graphic to be taken to the interactive feature.
