Of course not.  I am claiming that the mere existence of one or more
songs-about-randomly-selected-thing does not confer any inherent
merit on the subject of songs-about-randomly-selected-thing, and
most of the songs-about-randomly-selected-thing in most of the lists
are in fact songs which the editor who added them believes mention
or allude to thing, at some point.

Although to be fair, I thought the only wankers in "turning
Japanese" were the ones singing it...
