How about some music trivia?
B-B-B-B-B-Bennie and the Jets
When Elton John and his band initially taped “Bennie and the Jets”, they thought the tune was pretty blah. So, their manufacturer had the clapping, whistles, and other “live” sound impacts contributed to the track to beef it up a bit. The band was skeptical, and thought the song would go no place, it went on to strike a # 1 position on the charts.
Dear John? Really?
After the trip was over, Hall sent out Wiedlin a letter discussing how they had to break up. Weidlin turned the letter into The Go Gos first huge hit, “Our Lips are Sealed”.
Ah, Cars and Women
After AC/DC diva Bon Scott died of an overdose, it appeared like the band was toast. However, they introduced a brand-new singer called Brian Johnson, hoping the success could continue. While in the studio dealing with a brand-new album, Johnson was fantasizing and looking out the window while cars were streaming by. He had a considered just how much alike women and automobiles were … “She was a fast maker/ She kept her motor tidy”. The rest is history – AC/DCs first success in the U.S, “You Shook Me All Night Long”, was born.

Weidlin turned the letter into The Go Gos first big hit, “Our Lips are Sealed”. You understand how yawns are infectious – how if you yawn, everyone around you yawns? Out of 29 pet dogs, if eye contact was made with a yawner, 21 of the pets yawned.
Go figure …
You know how yawns are contagious – how if you yawn, everyone around you yawns? Birkbeck College in England conducted a study that found dogs can “catch” yawns also. Out of 29 canines, if eye contact was made with a yawner, 21 of the pet dogs yawned.
A Rat by Any Other Name …
Although the Birkbeck College pet study seems worthwhile, Im not quite so sure about this one. In 2005 Linguists at the University of Barcelona found that rats cant tell the distinction in between Japanese spoken backwards and Dutch spoken backward. Go figure …
