What wacky recommendations/suggestions have you ever gotten?

I was browsing through the track list for Paramore's Paramore, and I was thinking of buying the entire album pretty soon (a hefty discount I might add on the online music store I use, Nokia Music), and I previewed the entire thing, too. Pretty soft, huh?

*scroll to recommended albums*

What the heck are Pantera and Iron Maiden doing there?

I was browsing a few soundtracks from a game I had played and up popped a reccomendation for rock in the 90's.
Kinda makes you wonder how the reccomendation thing actually works doesnt it?

Maybe it's just one of those things where it recommends what other people went on to look at afterwards. Obviously the patrons of music sites have some extremely varied interests

I've had the LotR Shire theme come up right after Skillet or similar many times, sometimes followed by an Irish bar song like Rocky Road to Dublin.
