But it's spelled Hanalei there, and the photo is not one of crescent-shaped Hanalei Bay. It looks more like the Na Pali coast on the other side of the island. Not that it really matters, just sayin'. Regardless, the entire island is a beautiful place.

Just to put this out there... There is definitely a heartbreak hotel. It's across the street from Elvis's house. I don't know if it counts as not being fictional because of that. Great quiz!

Technically it was a poor girl ruined by the House of the Rising Sun -- the Animals just changed the lyric for some reason or other when they made their cover.

Um...I'm really confused about Gollum stealing anyone's girl. And the location still being Mordor. I mean, I could have guessed Mordor based on Gollum alone, but since it was in a real, contemporary song, I just figured the place had to be some crazy random thing that I also never would have thought of. Obviously, no, I don't listen to much Led Zeppelin. Explain, please. :)

From the Zeppelin song "Ramble On" -- "Mine's a tale that can't be told, my freedom I hold dear. How years ago in days of old, when magic filled the air. T'was in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair. But Gollum, and the evil one crept up and slipped away with her, her, her....yeah. "
