* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: "One Everything" is about the convergence of number theory and cosmology. Not peripherally, but as the entire premise. As a whole, the song could easily blow the mind of a grad student whose degree was not in mathematics or philosophy. It's on the album ''Here Come the 123s'', which was released by Disney Records, aimed specifically at children, and has songs that are obviously for the under-ten set (e.g., an explanation of even versus odd numbers). On the other hand, these deceptively-advanced topics are presented in a way that's nothing but kid-friendly, so maybe it subverts the trope--and the kids!
-->What if you drew a giant circle?\\
What if it went around All There Is?\\
Then would there still be such a thing as an outside?\\
And does that question even make any sense?

* HilariousInHindsight: Cartoonist Mark Marek did the animation for the "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" music video in 1990. Nine years later, the videos for "Doctor Worm" and "Why Does The Sun Shine" aired as part of the final season of ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'', which Marek worked on (he made the Henry and June wraparound segments). He later did the animation for "Underwater Woman" in 2015.

* ParanoiaFuel: "Hide Away Folk Family", "Where Your Eyes Don't Go", "Someone Keeps Moving My Chair", "It's Not My Birthday", "Hall Of Heads", "A Self Called Nowhere", "The Bells Are Ringing", "Rat Patrol", "Older", "Ant", "Bastard Wants To Hit Me", "I'm Impressed", "Can't Keep Johnny Down", "Black Ops," "Aaa", "I Am Alone"... That's a song off of each (non-children's) studio album (and at least one compilation). Yeah, it's one of the band's favorite tropes, and at least half of those have serious LyricalDissonance. "Someone Keeps Moving My Chair" is downright ''upbeat''.
