The city that Godiva rode naked through was Coventry, where her husband Leofric, Earl of Mercia, had imposed harsh taxes.
"Lady Godiva's Operation" is a song by The Velvet Underground from their album "White Light/White Heat".
Alex Day recently released his latest single, Lady Godiva, a cover of the 1966 Peter and Gordon song. It peaked at number 15 on the UK charts and 49 in Ireland.
