Hmmm. #12 is how you spell my mother’s name. Interesting.

Blue Highway is also a famous bluegrass band. There are several flamenco/North African/“world” bands called Andalus or Al-Andalus.

Not also. Blue Highway *is *the bluegrass band. Billboard has lots of charts. Andalus is apparently the way Billboard lists the Al-Andalus Ensemble on their charts.

Blue Highway is the name both of a band and of a font. Your OP counted it only as a font.

Ah, I remember the deal. I decided to use only names I could find on that current week’s chart. And while Blue Highway has been on the charts a couple of times, it isn’t now. They’re like Times New Viking, the group that made me think of how fontlike it sounded, but whom I had to leave off since it hasn’t charted since 2008. Same with Cake, which is also both a font and a group but I decided not to use it for some reason.

It would be fun to open up the timelines and find all the groups that have ever had font names and fonts that have ever had band names. We got three already.
