Meanstreak references


"...Is it a mean streak
To a certain degree
Come whistling down the crookedest street"

Lombard Street is a San Franciscan treat for tourists, but it's gotta be a royal pain in the ass for locals. Known as "America's crookedest street," Lombard literally winds down a steep hill in the city of Golden Gate. It was originally designed to stop people from coming "whistling down" the embankment, which is part of one of San Fran's most upscale neighbourhood's.

"...a mean streak on a western swing"

Hip Head Luke of told me that Western Swing is a style of country music, inspired by jazz, which was popular during The Great Depression.
