Ten random things: April 11

Ten places mentioned in songs written by Bob Dylan:

  1. Miami, Fla. ("Carribbean Wind")
  2. Vietnam ("Legionnaire's Disease")
  3. Honolulu, Hawaii ("You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go")
  4. Baltimore, Md. ("The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll")
  5. Buenos Aires, Argentina ("The Groom's Still Waiting At The Altar")
  6. South America ("Hurricane")
  7. San Antonio, Texas ("Brownsville Girl")
  8. Chicago, Ill. ("The Death of Emmett Till")
  9. Cuba ("Who Killed Davey Moore?")
  10. Fargo, N.D. ("Dusty Old Fairgrounds")

Thi slist was inspired by a Dylan song that didn't make the list: "Mississippi," which appears on his 2001 album Love and Theft and has been covered by, among others, Sheryl Crow and the Dixie Chicks. It didn't make the list because I decided not to use places that were mentioned in the titles of songs. Why? I don't know, it seemed like a good idea at the time.
