Select a picture, poem, quote, or song. Then we have to figure out who either wrote the poem, where the song's from, where the pictures from, or who said this quote.


I found my love by the gasworks croft
Dreamed a dream by the old canal
Kissed my girl by the factory wall
Dirty old town, dirty old town.

Clouds are drifting across the moon
Cats are prowling on their beat
Spring's a girl in the street at night
Dirty old town, dirty old town.

I heard a siren from the docks
Saw a train set the night on fire
Smelled the spring in the smokey wind
Dirty old town, dirty old town.

I'm going to make a good sharp axe
Shining steel tempered in the fire
We'll chop you down like an old dead tree
Dirty old town, dirty old town.


What country is this song from?


Raven

Ha -- it's either England or Ireland, I think. There's a Celtic rock band that I listen to that covers it. Am I right?

It's from Nowhere, it's called Castle Never.









Seriously, there's no picture here. :P Or is my computer resolving some childhood issues by refusing to display it?
