MotF 139: Feel the Rhythm

The Challenge
Make a map based on a song. :eek: Doesn't necessarily have to be about history, although it should of course be adapted into a map.

The Restrictions
There are no restrictions on when your PoD or map may be set. Fantasy, sci-fi, and future maps are allowed, but blatantly implausible (ASB) maps are not.

"New York State of Mind"

This song was written at a time when arguably New York was at its lowest point, crime was high, the City was in debt, and people were moving for the Sun Belt in droves. But the point is New York can always bounce back, and to do New York justice, this is the maximum claims of New York, New York at its greatest possibility.

Roll on (Eighteen Wheeler) -- by Alabama

This is a great little mid-80s country song that tells a great little story. The map shows why the jack-knifed rig ended up in a snowbank in Illinois.

Lyrics and an audio link are below.

Audio:

Roll on (Eighteen Wheeler) -- Alabama

Roll on highway, roll on along
Roll on daddy till you get back home
Roll on family, roll on crew
Roll on momma like I asked you to do
And roll on eighteen-wheeler roll on (Roll on)

Well it's Monday morning, he's kissin' momma goodbye
He's up and gone with the sun
Daddy drives an eighteen-wheeler
And he's off on a midwest run
As three sad faces gather 'round momma
They ask her when daddy's comin' home
Daddy drives an eighteen-wheeler
And they sure miss him when he's gone (Yeah they do)

Ah, but he calls them every night and he tells them that he loves them
He taught them this song to sing

Roll on highway, roll on along
Roll on daddy till you get back home
Roll on family, roll on crew
Roll on momma like I asked you to do
And roll on eighteen-wheeler, roll on (roll on)

Well it's Wednesday evening, momma's waitin' by the phone
It rings but it's not his voice
Seems the highway patrol has found a jack-knifed rig
In a snow bank in Illinois

But the driver was missin' and the search had been abandoned
For the weather had everything stalled
And they had checked all the houses and the local motels
When they had some more news they'd call
And she told them when they found him to tell him that she loved him
And she hung up the phone singin'

Roll on highway, roll on along
Roll on daddy till you get back home
Roll on family, roll on crew
Roll on momma like I asked you to do
And roll on eighteen-wheeler roll on

Momma and the children will be waiting up all night long
Thinkin' nothing but the worst is comin'
With the ringin' of the telephone
Oh, but the man upstairs was listening
When momma asked him to bring daddy home
And when the call came in it was daddy on the other end
Askin' her if she had been singin' the song, singin'

Roll on highway, roll on along
Roll on daddy till you get back home
Roll on family, roll on crew
Roll on momma like I asked you to do
And roll on eighteen-wheeler...

Eighteen-wheeler! Eighteen-wheeler! Eighteen-wheeler! Eighteen-wheeler!
Roll on... Roll on... Roll on... Roll on...

Ashes in the Sky by Loudness

Ashes in the Sky.png


Here is a map of post-apocalyptic Japan featuring ultranationalist Japanese Empire fueled by radical branch of Nichirenism, theocratic Holy League of Tenri (Tenrikyo's focus on healing really helped them grow in the post-war years), agrarian and isolationist Republic of Shikoku as well as the glorious invasion in the name of the Great Leader.

Oh, and the dark areas on the map are the parts that are still too irradiated for human habitation.

The Independent State of California was one of the countries to emerge from the collapse of the United States during an alternate 1990s.

It was inspired by Dani California by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers (hence the large amount of red!).
