    64. 90. <ul><li>According to the lead singer, this song was written about a car, because critics accused him of writing about nothing more than partying, sex, and cars, but he realized that he had yet to write a song about cars.

    68. 94. AZED and Confused
    69. 95. <ul><li>In his autobiography, A reveals that at his prep school, he was referred to by several nicknames, all of which he hated – Young ___, ___ Minor, ___ The Younger, ___ Secundus, and, worst of all, Small ___. All this led to a severe hatred of nicknames, and it was only some twenty years later that he was referred to by anything other than his name – to wit, “M’colleague” – by his long-time comedic partner and friend B. A and B starred in a TV show C which was seen by many as a natural successor to D, a much more famous and critically acclaimed show. C’s run ended in 1995, and A and B were not seen regularly on prime-time television until well into the new millennium, when A got a job as the host of E, in my opinion the best TV quiz show ever, and B snagged the leading role in F, a drama that borrows heavily from the G canon. E was co-created by H, a BBC stalwart, who was also the co-author, along with I, of two books J and K. In the combined length of J and K, some of the instances in which India feature are “Anantnag (vb): (Eskimo term) to bang your thumbs between oars while rowing”, :Calicut (adj): determined not to let someone see how much their inadvertent remark has hurt you”, and “Poona (n): satisfied grunting noise made when sitting back after a good meal”. </li></ul><ul><li>The series F, has also featured both L and M, a pair of actors most famous for their roles in the buddy movie N and its recent sequel. L played a cameo in season 1 of F. M has a permanent role in F, which commenced from season 4. M also played a villain in the highly-anticipated superhero movie O, which was directed by P, the executive producer of F. P was chosen to direct O mostly because of the excellent job he did directing the first two Q movies, in which almost everyone has a nickname. </li></ul>
