Do any songs you like mention viaducts and/or Frank Lloyd Wright?

I recognize this is a random question but realized that some of my very favorite songs mention one or the other and maybe I can find some new songs to enjoy. (My current favorites: "So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright" by Simon and Garfunkel, "Villians" by Gabriel Kahane, and "Come On! Feel the Illinoise!" by Sufjan Stevens / "War on Drugs" by Barenaked Ladies and "Concrete Ganesha" by Torres.)

Van Morrison - Astral Weeks is an obvious one.
Also Red Right Hand by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
(both mention viaducts).

A search for FLW on shows examples from Throwing Muses, Sparks, and Conor Oberst, but i haven’t heard them myself.

A lot of hits for viaduct too. My personal favorite: Nick Cave’s “Red Right Hand.” (Oh just saw pipeski mentioned it already)

Is an aqueduct close enough? Frank Black's Ole Mulholland is about bringing water to Los Angeles.
