Choose Theme Songs for Individual Buildings

Basic format: Post at least one photo of at least one building, and then the song you feel captures its spirit (embedded Youtube is fine, but a link might be better to not clutter up the thread). The title and lyrics don't have to be apropos as long as the music is. And, of course, nothing prevents more than one person from giving different takes on the same building, or using the same song for different buildings, so don't think any that shows up is "taken."

Here's a couple- For One New York Plaza, I offer the english version of the theme from "Princess Mononoke"- the lyrics are hauntingly beautiful and speak of a hidden heart that few ever see.

And here's the skyscraper herself, the pic was taken by me while I was in NYC:


Now I know she's not a building, but anyone mind if Manhattan Bridge joins in?
For her, I'll nominate "Memory", from "Cats".

I can just imagine the bridge herself singing this, during one of the worst periods of neglect she has endured.

Again, this is one of my own pics:


And what the hell, here's one for Brooklyn Bridge- "Bridge over troubled water". Suitable, because that bridge has meant so much to so many people, and been such a source of comfort and happiness to so many.

Another one of my fine vacation pics:

I immediately knew exactly what song I would put with this building when I saw this pic, so I'll give my take on it:

Smashing Pumpkins, Stellar
