Chris Rea’s Road to Hell was originally titled Road to Perdition but he changed it as it didn’t rhyme … and the rest is history.

The M8?

Don’t know him at all …

The dark and freezing north pole region of Pluto’s moon, Charon is called… … Mordor.

Star Wars fact.

DarthVader never says the words “Luke, I am your father”

Actually, the exchange goes like this:

Darth Vader: Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.
Luke Skywalker: He told me enough! He told me you killed him!
Darth Vader: No. I am your father.


Deadly! And to top that the actor that played Darth Vader David Prowse said a completely different line as he was dubbed over by James Earl Jones (only mark Hamil knew the real line)

Another misquote/ interpretation is from Field of Dreams

The misquote: "If you build it, they will come."
The actual quote: “If you build it, he will come.”

Get it right folks! :slight_smile:

Robbie Keane is related to Morrissey.

I knew that!

Ex Meath manager Sean Boylan was close friends with Joy Division manager and Factory Records boss Tony Wilson. Boylan described Wilson as ‘like a brother’. I read this somewhere and it featured on the Tom Dunne show a while ago.

True. The relationship led to the band attending the Leinster 1989 Final in support of Mordor, a visit which inspired their best known song, ‘Duff Will Tear Us Apart’.
