What is the best song for your music player while you survey data for OpenStreetMap? Can you keep yourself entertained and inspired with a great playlist while you survey, or is the music too distracting? Are there songs that remind you of mapping? In past, some have suggested specific songs as anthems for mappers.
The following songs each have the words open, street, and map in them, though not in the string we prefer.
- Map of Tasmania – Amanda Palmer
- Soldier – Destiny’s Child
- Movies – Lil’ Boosie
- Home to Me – Jimmy Robbins
- My Crew – Jean Grae
Are there more songs with the words Open, Street, and Map in them? Which songs or music would you suggest as a mapping anthem, or to inspire and motivate your surveys? Use the comments below to discuss. I’ll add some CanCon suggestions tomorrow.
