Did you know? The Rush song "YYZ" is based off of the morse code translation of the letter YYZ. Definitely explains the staccato rhythms going on there.

Yeah, that's basically what its for. I just came across that YYZ tidbit today, that's what gave me the idea for the thread.
How bout this? Some of you might already know this, but the chemical brothers originally performed under the name of The Dust Brothers as an homage to the US production duo and scorers of the movie Fight Club for a little over two years, until the Dusties threatened legal action. This name change inspired the title for the album "Exit Planet Dust."

You. Someone. Anyone. Go to the meme thread, follow the link I posted, and LISTEN TO THAT SONG! I need to know if anyone digs it as much as I am right now. An aural palate cleanser after that Rebecca Black.

Speaking of interesting tidbits, my song reminded pea of Len's "Steal My Sunshine," for which the entire background is sampled from a disco song I'm sure most of you have heard, "More More More," by the Andrea True Connection.
