Default All About Bridges

A well-designed bridge is a thing of great beauty, a soaring testament to the possibilities of engineering, but even if they don't particularly excite you of themselves, perhaps you'd like to contribute to this thread with songs that mention bridges, famous bridge scenes in movies, a funny thing happened to me on a bridge once etc.



^ This bridge is very attractive, and is a huge improvement on the previous design on the same site. Watch the short construction-nerd video and perhaps you'll be inspired to post a bridge you like too.

great! i really like thinking about music through various concepts.
this particular is a good one cuz a bridge can be both a great structure but it aslo bears a strong symbolic meaning...
all that said heres a 90's classic. to be honest this was soooooo overplayed that i dont even have the courage of listening to it one more time. its a great song tho. its also the first song that came to my mind so i m going to put it here:

Probably my all-time favorite film footage of a bridge...

^ Thanks for the input guys! Yes, that Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapse is spectacular! I've watched it a few times - more times, in fact, than I've heard ziggywas's Chili Pepper recomendation. I don't know where it was an over-played classic, but it wasn't in my neighbourhood!

And for being on topic, what can trump the album entitled "Bridges" from rostasi? Well, how about a song in which a bridge is the lead instrument?

The second tune on that "Bridges" album is "Song of the Wind" with the first verse being:

"Blow, wind, blow
Further than a thousand wires
Blow, wind, blow
Transporter of the clouds
Blow, wind, blow
Fanner of a thousand fires, yeah
Can't you see?
That every place you go
Well, the people got a need to understand
Yes, some people want to know
Won't you blow, wind, blow?"
