Description:
Who hasn't passed by a place that made them remember the lyrics to a song?

This is a category for locations which have inspired a person or group of people to pen a famous tune.
Expanded Description:
A good example for this category would be from one of my favorite songs, Cathedral, by Crosby, Stills, Nash (and Young). For this type location I'd use the main entrance of the place specified in the song for coordinates.

I am looking for specific locations that either inspired the song or can be identified by the song.

This monument was designed for Elizabeth Soyer by her husband Alexis Benoit Soyer who is also interred here. In large letters are the words "TO HER" and this makes me think of The Pretenders hit "Hymn to Her".
