  2. "Ten Seconds To Heaven" - The Ventures (Sounds a bit like "Stranger in Paradise *) * I had to check this out. According to Wikipedia - "Stranger In Paradise", "In 1965, the Ventures released their version of the song, renamed "The Stranger" and "Ten Seconds To Heaven". " Now we know, the rest of the story.

  8. From https://www.songfacts.com/facts/jonathan-king/everyones-gone-to-the-moon " It was once suggested that the Moon in question was a public house in Cambridge; if that were true one could understand the title - "Everyone's Gone To The Pub" doesn't have quite the same ring to it. Although King was a Cambridge undergraduate when he wrote it, this claim has no basis in fact. In his own words, it was intended as a satire on the "Dylan school" of meaningful lyrics; King made a practice of this in his early career. ". Another interesting tidbit from https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/77672/jonathan-king-sentenced-to-7-years-in-prison "Former pop star and music industry entrepreneur Jonathan King has been sentenced to seven years in jail in England for a series of sexual assaults against schoolboys. A jury at the Old Bailey in London"
