* The [[Creator/MercedesLackey SERRAted Edge]] novel ''Chrome Circle'' has racer-mage Tannim captured by unseelie fey, and in order to keep their mind readers from learning anything, he concentrates on the music and lyrics of TheyMightBeGiants. He ''drives several mind readers insane,'' and theorizes he may have started a rash of accordion thefts by convincing them of the magical nature of the instrument.
** Part of the reason they go insane is because they think Tannim is thinking about alchemical terms (and they can't figure out what the terms mean because he really isn't).
