So what?

In a coincidence that almost totally defies belief, a man has revealed how, when playing music through his computer over the weekend, he came to listen to the track '10:15 On A Saturday Night' by The Cure at precisely 10:15 on Saturday night!

Taken from their first album, 'Three Imaginary Boys' (1979), the song also appeared as the B-side to their single 'Killing an Arab'.

The band's Robert Smith has claimed to have written the song one evening when he was 16 whilst sitting at the kitchen table in his parent's house feeling "utterly morose", and watching the tap drip, drip, dripping into the kitchen sink.

The time was a quarter past ten.

Moys Kenwood, 56, had been listening to music from his Media Monkey music manager, and was enjoying the Crispy Ambulance "Live on a Hot August Night" 12" single, comprising 'Concorde Square' and 'The Presence', when the latter faded out, and on came The Cure.

Kenwood said:

"As I heard the opening of the song, I happened to look at my watch, and, amazingly, it was exactly a quarter past ten! I mean, what are the chances of that happening?"

According to a man capable of doing simple mathematics, the chances of that happening are 604,800 to 1.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
