Just to start a less serious topic: what music goes well with mapping?
My first suggestion, from U2: "Where the streets have no names"
Do you have other suggestions?
AC/DC - Highway to Hell
There is a Dutch performer, Guus Meeuwis, who wrote a song called "Per spoor (Kedeng kedeng)", where 'per spoor' means 'by train'. It was a number 1 hit for four weeks.
Mapping tools: Garmin GPSmap 60CSx, Giant Terrago 2002
I would suggest Queen, first "Bicycle race" followed by "We are the Champions"
Mapping tool: Garmin HCx, Nikon Coolpix L3
If mapping some major highways.... "Radar Love" by Golden Earing....
Radar guns love me...
Let Darwinism work, remove Safety Labels and dumb warnings.
Another suggestion, railway oriented, for french speaking mappers:
"Un T.E.R. minable" from Gérald Genty (T.E.R is "Train Express Regional" but the song playing with words. The title sounds like "interminable" = endless)
Maps & Legends by REM:
The map that you painted didn't seem real.
He just sings whatever he's seen
Point to the legend, point to the east,
Point to the yellow, red and green
Maybe he's caught in the legend,
maybe he's caught in the mood.
Maybe these maps and legends
have been misunderstood, been misunderstood.
road to hell, chris rea
the long and winding road, beatles
seven bridges road, eagles

Try "On the road again" by Canned Heat

I'd agree with ligfietser - I've often thought of Maps and Legends as the ideal OSM song. It's a great song, too.
