** In the US it is "Don't You (Forget About Me)", as it was their only song to top the charts in the US, tied to [[Film/TheBreakfastClub one of the most iconic films of the 190s]], and largely the only song they're remembered for in that country.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Dream Giver Redux complains to no end about most reissues of ''Real To Real Cacophony''. For years, there has been much confusion about the album's proper title. The original was clearly titled ''Real To Real Cacophony'', but most reissues misspell it as ''Reel To Real Cacophony'' or even more heinously, ''Reel To Reel Cacophony''. He then goes on to explain how Virgin packaged the album in a glossy sleeve. Which is always the wrong shade of blue.

-->Toilet paper, styrofoam too,

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Dream Giver Redux on the Virgin reissue of Real To Real Cacophony
--> The original sleeves were thermographic, featuring a sequence raised bumps and textures. Trying to cut costs, the second issues were packed in plain card sleeves without the texturing.
