Title text: I hear that there are actual lyrics later on in Land of 1,000 Dances, but other than the occasional 'I said,' I've never listened long enough to hear any of them.
Not long after this comic was published, the following message was posted by Randall on its xkcd page:
- I can't believe I forgot Hey Jude.
- I don't get do-overs, but I couldn't resist making a fixed version.
The top entry refers to the song "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye", originally recorded by Paul Leka, Gary DeCarlo, and Dale Frashuer. It has become very popular among the home fans of sporting events in America, who use it to taunt the away team.
The leftmost bottom entry refers to the theme song to the 60s TV show Batman.
The rightmost bottom entry refers to the song "Land of a Thousand Dances", originally recorded by Chris Kenner.
The extra, do-over entry refers to the song "Hey Jude", originally recorded by the Beatles.
