Trivial

Top 10 Obscure, Pointless Facts From My iPod


10. As of this moment, I have four thousand, four hundred and forty four tracks on my iPod.

9. I have songs entitled Disco King (Spencer Tracey) and Disco Queen (Hot Chocolate). The lesser nobility are not granted the right to boogie on down, it seems.

8. Apparently Nobody Loves Me (Portishead) and Nobody Loves You (Garbage).

7. Nothing Changes (Makron) but Nothing Stays The Same (Elastica).

6. There are 94 tracks which share a title with another, completely unrelated song. The oddest one is ‘Blue Monday’, which is both the seminal New Order track and an obscure jazz number from the 1950s.

5. Three unrelated tracks share the title ‘Vanishing Point’, and strangely enough they’re all by electronica outfits (Kinobe, Apollo 440 and New Order).

4. There are four songs called ‘Alright’ (The Cardigans, Supergrass, Jamiroquai and Spiderbait).

3. Only two groups are short-sighted enough to give their album the same title. Both The Bees and The Clouds decided to release a CD called ‘Octopus’. It must have something to do with being airborne.

2. Both of the songs called ‘America’ are by Australian performers (Alex Lloyd and Spiderbait). The single song called ‘Australia’ is by an American group (The Shins)

1. Stupidest song title would have to be ‘.’ (Paul Colman Trio), closely followed by ‘!’ (Regurgitator).
