    Orange County Girl

    I don't know if this has been posted but on Gwen Stefani's album The Sweet Escape there are two Disneyland references in the song "Orange County Girl" the first is "From the West Side of Anaheim, a small world after all" and the second "I know I'm living the "E" ticket dream" there is also a Pirates reference in the video for "Sweet Escape" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rjq6uoyAh9Y it's not hard to miss.

    Three-time MVP Larry Bird, noting that Bryant has been the NBA's premier player for years, told Sports Illustrated's Dan Patrick before this week's announcement, "When someone told me the other day that Kobe hadn't won an MVP trophy, it sort of made me feel like I wanted to throw mine away."

    Re: Orange County Girl

    Well, Gwen's love for Disneyland stems from growing up in Anaheim! No Doubt named their second album "Tragic Kingdom" and referenced Disneyland and Orange County often!

    No Doubt received the keys to Anaheim Friday at Disneyland, which the band mocked in its 1995 hit album Tragic Kingdom -- lead singer Gwen Stefani even confessed she wanted to work at Disneyland and sing songs at the Disneyland Hotel, and admitted she used to come dancing there.

    When you play her records backwards it says "Walt is a dead man miss him miss him".

    Just being nitpicky
    The song "Tragic Kingdom" was penned by Eric Stefani, Gwen's older brother who left the band during the recording of the Tragic Kingdom album. Also, Tragic Kingdom was the band's third album. The Beacon Street Collection was their second release.

    Me too! I'm glad they only sell it in Orange County too because why would anyone else need it?
