* Music/CarlosSantana wrote three songs: "Evil Ways", "Black Magic Woman" and "Oye Como Va." If you are listening to a classic rock station he also wrote "No One To Depend On". If you remember Woodstock, the band also did "Soul Sacrifice".

* Music/CarlosSantana wrote three songs: "Evil Ways", "Black Magic Woman" and "Oye Como Va." If you are listening to a classic rock station he also wrote "No One To Depend On". If you remember Woodstock, the band also did "Soul Sacrifice". Everyone has also heard "Smooth", "The Game of Love", and probably "Why Don't You & I" as well thanks to their heavy longstanding presence on pop radio and in-store PA soundtracks, but it's unlikely that most of them would be able to name Santana as the main artist.



* All rap and hip-hop, whether performed by men or women, is virulently misogynistic and promotes either violence against women, anal sex, gang violence or all three. There are no interracial rap groups.

-->''"The problem with only having one hit is that it has the unfortunate effect of giving the public at large a very narrow definition of your work, and oftentimes people get an entirely wrong impression. If all you know of Music/{{Devo}} is "Whip It", for example, you simply don't know their importance and the scope of their influence, and if all you know of Music/WarrenZevon is "Werewolves of London", you have an entirely inaccurate understanding of his work. (Beat) Carl Douglas is not that kind of artist."''

** Music/NeilYoung wrote "Heart of Gold", "Rockin' in the Free World" and came out of a lengthy retirement to release an unhinged album called "Let's Impeach The President" in 2006. If you frequent home improvement stores, he also wrote a tender love song called "Harvest Moon". "Lotta Love", often heard at drugstores and on "smooth jazz" stations, was written by Music/LauraNyro, the woman who sings it.[[note]]She's actually Nicolette Larson. Young encouraged her to record it when she heard and enjoyed a tape of it in his car.[[/note]]

* Opera:
** There are no altos, baritones, or basses; all singers are dignified tenors or temperamental sopranos, regardless of their actual vocal ranges.
** ''Theatre/{{Carmen}}'' (Bizet) contains the only mezzo-soprano aria, the "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDFgtFXfnv0 Habanera]]". Elsewhere ''Carmen'' is known from "Tora-adora, don't spit on the [[PainfulRhyme floor-a]]" or maybe "Neither a borrower, nor a lender be" (which is actually from ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'', by way of ''Series/GilligansIsland'').
** ''Rigoletto'' (Verdi) contains only the song ''"La donna è Mobile"''.
** ''Pagliacci'' (the opera with the "crying clown", by Leoncavallo) contains only the aria ''"Vesti la giubba"''.
** ''Theatre/DonGiovanni'' (opera by Mozart) is better known for the visuals (specifically the Commendatore's statue coming to life) than for the actual music.
** The only tenor aria is "Nessun Dorma" from ''Turandot''
** The only baritone aria is ''Largo Al Factotum'' from ''The Barber of Seville''
