Bizarre search engine terms – 2016 edition

About once a year, I like to take a look at the search engine terms that have brought people to this site, including the many that make me chuckle. Here are some recent highlights:

james blake elbow arctic monkeys pulp m people badly drawn boy

Are indeed all artists that have been mentioned previously on this blog. See here, here, here, here, here, and here.

henry jackman mr selfridge

IMDB is probably your best place for queries like this, and “no, he wasn’t,” is probably the answer to your question.

davina mccall breast british male award

I’ve looked again, and I don’t think Davina McCall has ever presented the Breast British Male Award at the BRITs, although she did present the entire ceremony in 2000 and 2003.

what is the trevor howard movie used in the robson green video of unchained melody

Inexplicably, my tag for Wham! comes first on Google when you search for this. The short answer, I’m afraid, is that I’ve no idea, but again IMDB might be a good place to start searching.

terence trent d’arby paula yates affair / paul..yates had affair with tereence trent derby

It’s a rumour that seems to pop up all over the internet, but it isn’t honestly something I could care less about. You can learn more about Terence here, and Paula here, and they did turn up together on the first B.E.F. album, reviewed here.

cloud nothings

It’s impressive that I would turn up on your search results, as I’ve only mentioned them once, and even then only in passing. Try their official website instead.

“divine fits”

See above! Their website is here.

everyone using autotune

I don’t have a list unfortunately, but you can read my thoughts on the subject here, and you can also learn how to get rid of the autotune effect but leave it on here.

rachel riley cribs

When I started researching this, I was thinking that I don’t think she has ever been on Cribs – she would certainly be an unlikely candidate. But then I discovered I have written about her before, when she presented the Q Spirit of Independence award to The Cribs in 2012. So there’s your answer!

erasure split up

Definitely not – you can read about their latest album The Violet Flame here.

If you want to see more, here are the 2015, 2014, and 2013 editions.
