Pop Culture


So, just had a thought, @rsharp and @pokemama, that the Rainbow Connection might be a perfect target for the application of rigorous scientific method to an absurd subject.

Are there “so many songs about rainbows?” That is, more than would be expected given a distribution of song subjects that reflected either their frequency of occurrence or sociocultural importance?

A quick search of the iTunes store for songs titled “Rainbow” yielded… 8 hits. Is that really a lot? How do we rank it v. expectations and compare to other potentially non-standard subjects, like, say, pizza (43 hits).


Also, just going to leave this here.
