They Might Be Giants "Istanbul Not Constantinople"

A couple of months ago, I did a series of posts about songs that inadvertently (or perhaps intentionally) taught me something.

With the country Turkey in the news this song came to mind, as it formed my understanding that places like Istanbul, New York and even Aquinnah might have previously been called something different.

Hear the song on Youtube.

    I learn something every day -- and get to listen to music I wouldn't ordinarily know about.
