In the song "Settle Down" by ZWAN, Billy Corgan sings the line, "seven years, seven days, and seven hours." Including the occurrence of one leap day, the total number of hours (61519) is prime. Curiously, if two leap days occur in this time period, then the number of hours is the next consecutive prime! [Patterson]
