if i had a band, i'd name it 'how soon is now'

In some general web-surfing this morning, I found a Wikipedia category called "List of bands named after other performers' songs." I knew some: Godsmack, Beat Surrender, Radiohead, Hello Goodbye, Deacon Blue, Shakespeares Sister, Death Cab for Cutie, and a few others. But admittedly, I hadn't heard of most of them. Cool. That page also led me to discover the categories "List of bands named after places," and the ultra-cool "List of band name etymologies."

'Kay, Wikipedia -- not perfect, but sometimes pretty fun.

Oh, and I'm more inclined to name a band "I Sleep on My Heart."

Sufjan Stevens meets Jeff Buckley, with a dash of Vienna Teng thrown in for good measure. Cool stuff.
