that.

there must be lots of them? from lots of different parts of the world, and eras. i've just been listening to this rip of tanya stephens' the other cheek, over and over

http://soundcloud.com/danjhancox/the-other-cheek-tanya-stephens (towards the end, around 2:45)

Well white hall and Red Hills road,
you know dem have a little message fi disclosed
it goes like dis, mistah..

***

and obviously this is a whole song full of local areas mentioned sequentially, as well as being the all time best song anywhere ever (though that's not the point here):

<object width="480" height="385"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/5aKHUoIHZV4?fs=1&amp;hl=en_GB"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/5aKHUoIHZV4?fs=1&amp;hl=en_GB" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

more please :)

there's a tinchy song on an early mixtape, 'a day in the life' or something where he's running around roman road and e3 and stuff. i was thinking songs with more than just a one-off reference to one local street... any suggestions?
