Sorry - it's like I'm still in 'treasure hunt' mode. :P

Your post brings some cool ideas, anyway.

When I did my count, I just counted all the songs from the 13 studio albums to date, so A Change of Seasons, or any of the other non-album tracks, are not counted. Six Degrees and In the Presence of Enemies counted as one song each, and all 34 songs from The Astonishing (including the NOMAC tracks) counted, thus arriving at 136. This will make track 1 of Distance Over Time song 137.
And you may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

I live off of exit 137 on the Garden State Parkway.
I'm sure it has something to do with it.

Maybe every song is going to be at 137bpm

'Beatrice' from Discord has noted that, just as 137 is the 33rd prime number, the band is currently ending their 33rd year of activity. (As in: next May will be the 33rd anniversary of the band's first show.)

So do we go ahead and move this thread to the Octavarium subforum now, or wait a while?
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I have counted both ITPOE and SDOIT as individual songs,

In the Presence of Enemies counted as one song

 :lol ::)


ACoS it is a studio album song, because is the only original song to be included in a EP and nowhere else..

So 137 it is..

If you add all their 20+ minute epics together the length comes to almost exactly 137 minutes.. no relevance really, just thought that was a cool coincidence!

I'm guessing that AboutToCrash is including ItPoE as a single song:

SDoIT  42:02
ItPoE   25:38
8V       24:00
ACoS   23:09
IT        22:17*
TOTAL  137:06

* - If you only consider the song proper and not the little instrumental ditty at the end, it's less than 20 minutes.

Episode 137 of Dragon Ball Z, part of the Androids Saga, has a character "furiously vow to destroy the androids for humiliating and defeating him".

I'd say if an android was holding a human skull, that would be pretty humiliating!

The album will revolve around the "Game of Tones" episode of Futurama, which was number 137 of the series.

No it isn't.  It is one song.

But 137 does not refer to the number of DT songs anyway.

Are you implying that you know exactly what 137 means, or that no logical cherrypicking of DT songs will result in 137?

It’s one hell of a weird coincidence then although I suppose you do have to kind of force SDOIT and ITPOE into single songs to get it to add to 137 but leave A Mind Beside Itself as individual songs so maybe not that much of a coincidence.
