Joshua Tree trivia

There is a word that appears in 8 of the first 10 songs on JT - missing in WOWY and TTYW, but is prevalent in the other 8.

What is it?

Assuming it's an interesting word, I don't know. I thought it might be "rain"--which is in "Streets," "Bullet," "Running To Stand Still," "One Tree Hill," and maybe others--but it isn't.

He said the word is not in WOWY:

Hmmm, no it's not, but that is the 10th song, so maybe he meant not including that one? I don't know, it's in all the others and not WOWY or TTYW.

*must get back to studying for repro test!!!*

How can you say there is a word that appears in 8 of the first 10 songs if its missing in WOWY and TTYW?? And what do you mean prevalent in the other 8? Including all 10? Even though you said its in the first 8 of 10 songs?






EDIT: nevermind.. I think I understand the question.

I had the same thought though. Wouldn't you just say, "Its in ever song but the MOTD, WOWY, and TTYW"?

My brain just exploded.

Well, I was confused initially as well, but if you really think about it, the post does make sense. One Tree Hill didn't say the word appears in 8 out of 10 songs successively. The statement is simply saying that in 8 songs (up to and including the 10th song, 'Exit') you will find the same word. Not in 8 songs in a row. By saying the word is prevelent in the other 8, I take it it means "the first 10 songs other than the two that don't include the word."

It's very simple.
