Musical Madness

The song "Just a perfect day", originally by Lou Reed, has been released in a special BBC edition, and is performed by 23 famous artists

In the song "Gett Off", by the artist formerly known as Prince, the lyrics read: "Gett off! Twenty-three positions in a one-night stand".

The Police; Their song "Synchronicity I" is 3:23 long.

Richard 23, name of the backup vocalist for the Belgian industrial rock band Front 242.

Kurt Cobain; Born 1967: 1+9+6+7=23. Died 1994: 1+9+9+4=23.

Demolition 23, the name of a pleasantly subversive band.

The first song on Side A of the Beatles first Album took 23 takes to record.

U2; U is the 21st letter in the alphabet added to the number two gives you 23.

Psychick TV made the Guiness Book of World Records by release the most amount of albums in the shortest time period. 23 albums in 23 months on the 23rd of each month.

There are 23 letters in the name Justified Ancients of Mu Mu.

In DvorŠ±ks Symphony No. 9 in E Minor (5th letter of the alphabet, btw), you hear the morse code for V, the Roman Numeral Symbol for 5.
