Bizarre search engine terms

I’ve been writing this blog for a while now, and I’ve been enjoying watching the statistics for you lot, the people who visit. Your numbers are good, on the whole, and a lot of you stay to read stuff, which is encouraging too.

But I think what I enjoy the most is the search engine terms by which you end up on the page. Here are ten of my favourites, with the answers so you don’t need to search so hard in future:

Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, just the one – they won Best British Single in 2009 with The Promise. They were also nominated for Best British Group in 2008 and 2009, Best Pop Act in 2008, and BRITs Hits 30 for The Promise in 2010.

Apparently Kylie Minogue thinks there’s an element of her in Lady Gaga, according to a slightly pointless article in the New York Daily News, here. But what does Gaga think of Kylie? Keep searching…

No. There’s a table on the Wikipedia page for Band Aid 20.

Technically they weren’t write the previous ones. But yes, sadly they is, thanks to the ITV series The Big Reunion. Read more about it on their Wikipedia page.

I think this may be my favourite. It would be tempting to suggest he lives a vampire lifestyle by night, or maybe turns into a werewolf and howls in the moonlight.

But I don’t think so…
