Rush's Moving Pictures album cover in Google Street View
10:16AM EST | comments (15) |

The Guardian newspaper has been running a series of articles where they match up famous locations from art, literature and music with the corresponding location as depicted in Google Street View. The latest installment in this series uses Google Street View to show us the world's cities through the lens of famous album covers, one of which is Rush's Moving Pictures:

Moving Pictures by Rush. The Canadian prog legends illustrate their album with some literal moving of paintings in front of the Ontario Legislature in Toronto in 1981

You can check out the photo online here, and view the other 11 famous album covers featured at this location. Thanks to Tony R for the heads up.

I have never seen a video for Tai Shan, that doesn't mean there isn't one. I was aware of your fondness for the song from previous threads. So, i searched for a mountain temple (even though this one is in a city near a large river) with stairs. I figured that you would be able to connect the dots.

did they actually make a video for that song?

Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

Or should I say, a prize every time.

The photo is of the Cold Mountain Temple. Closest I could find.

#6 - yep - thats where they filmed the high school scenes for the Subdivisions video.

Your turn.

Or it could be Mission/Hold your fire.

O.K. Craig, I'll give it a try. Is it Subdivisions/Signals?
