oh wiki, what will you teach me today:

Quote:
The single was massively successful in Australia, spending three weeks at #1 and becoming the second-highest selling single of the year.
well, that explains that.

but this?

Quote:
In 2005, British girl group Girls Aloud covered the song for their What Will The Neighbours Say? Live tour. (This version reverses the lyrics so that it is the story of a girl singing about a boy owing to the singers being female) It was later featured as a b-side to their single "Whole Lotta History". A studio recording cover by Girls Aloud is included on a special BBC Radio 1 compilation CD, Radio 1. Established 1967, celebrating 40 years of the station. It has also been covered by the all-girl Belgian Scala Choir,[1] and is regularly covered live by Dashboard Confessional. It has also been covered by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. It was also covered by All Time Low at a concert in 2007, and Hedley (band) on the Famous Last Words tour in 2008, and by Weezer at the 2010 Reading and Leeds festivals. In response to this, when performing this song, singer/guitar Brendan B. Brown has been known to break and start singing the lyrics to Weezer's song Beverly Hills.

The song was also featured at number 69 on the top 100 greatest pop songs of all time on the UK music channel, "The Hits".

For the radio version, from the sentence "He brings a gun to school" the word "gun" was removed due to the Columbine High School massacre one year previously.[citation needed]

American rock band Weezer covers the song when playing in the UK, as it is a concert favorite there. There is a common misconception that it was Weezer who originally wrote the song, when in fact this is not the case.
i had no idea. i remember hearing it when it came out a bunch, but probably haven't heard or really thought about it since then.

I did indeed. I now have three. Looks like the first master list thread will be up before the 12/31 deadline.

Should be, although you may want to consider converting your lossless to mp3 in itunes so the file isn't as large.

1. Download winrar: WinRAR archiver, a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files
2. Right click wherever on your desktop and click "create new archive"
3. Go to your iTunes playlists and highlight the songs you want to archive.
4. Open winrar.
5. In the upper left-hand corner, click "add."
6. Next to the place where it says "archive name," click "browse." From there, find the archive you created and click "OK."

That archive with the tracks now added to it is uploadable by services such as megaupload (preferable for archives >100 MBs in size) or mediafire (preferable for archives <100 MBs).

It should be under "New." New-->create new archive.

Another option is to highlight the tracks inside of a file, right click them and click "add to archive."

With the first playlist I received undergoing a revision due to exceeding the time limit, I actually only have two playlists right now, so no first master list thread just yet.

I'm going to back out of this so, phanan, they're calling your name. Step on up to the plate. Work the count, get your pitch, and knock that shit over the right field fence.
