12. "RE: Playlist/Mental Concert: AON x HTT"

Someone involved with the song production for K-On! likes playing with numbers; there are several songs with Arabic numerals in the titles, and one of the recurring "insert" songs HTT plays on screen several times over the course of the series, "Gohan wa Okazu", contains an untranslatable pun based on the number 5. The chorus involves repeated chanting of the line, "Ichi, ni, san, shi, go-ha-n," which is basically "one, two, three, four, five-and-also-the-first-syllable-of-rice". :)
