    Q. I want to know how to get songs that are only on exclusive singles... I cant find any way to get ahold of songs like "a spell a rebel yell" since that came only w/ a magazine subscription. PLEASE ANSWER! ned

    The Oracle replies:

    Sadly the only way you could get that song was on the Violet Hill single that was given away with the NME paper (but it wasn't subscription only). It was a vinyl record too so some people got it but still haven't heard it! Anyway, you can hear it

    Q. Hello Oracle! I was just listening to Yellow by Coldplay and was wondering where they got the idea for that awsome song? Thanx:)

    The Oracle replies:

    It was actually inspired by a meteor shower that took place during the recording of the album Parachutes. They were at Rockfield Studios (Wales). Take a look at the guest book...

    Q. Hello all-knowing Oracle, I have a little riddle for you, well its a bit long, but please read on... "Three guys go to a hotel that charges $30 a night. In order to divide the price evenly, they each pay $10. After they have paid and left the office, the employee realizes that he overcharged them by $5, so he was only supposed to charge them $25. He is told to return the money to them, but in order to make the division simpler, he keeps $2 and returns $1 to each of the guys." So it is as if each paid $9... right? ok so then the $9 that each paid x 3 = $27 + the $2 that he kept = $29. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE OTHER DOLLAR? I'm sure with you being the Oracle and all, you will be able to solve this in a jiffy!

    The Oracle replies:

    Nothing! If the men paid $27 and then got a dollar back each, that's $3 so the total of $30 is accounted for. The mistake people make is thinking the $2 the employee keeps is relevant to the sum. A great riddle nonetheless.
