Brian Hooper sent in this interesting bit of information about a Nelly Furtado song. He noticed that there is an allusion to Steve McQueen in Nelly Furtado's song "Promiscuous Girl" on her popular CD "Loose."

Here are the lyrics from the verse where the reference is used:


N: Roses are red
Some diamonds are blue
Chivalry is dead
But you're still kinda cute

Hey! I can't keep my mind off you
who you with, do you mind if I come through

N: Iím out of this world come with me to my planet
Get you on my level do you think that you can handle it?

They call me Thomas
last name Crown
Recognize game
I'm a lay mine's down


N: I'm a big girl I can handle myself
But if I get lonely Iíma need your help
Pay attention to me I don't talk for my health

I want you on my team
N: So does everybody else.

Baby we can keep it on the low
Let your guard down ainít nobody gotta know
If you with it girl I know a place we can go

N: What kind of girl do you take me for?

(Thanks to Brian Hooper for sending this in, because I've heard this song a few times before and never noticed the line!)
