17 days to go

Continuing in the pop culture countdown to the 2010 Winter Olympics, Jan. 25 is brought to you by the number 17.

Heaven 17 was part of the early 1980s synthpop revolution. The Sheffield, England band is still recording and touring. In fact, the band is celebrating its 30th anniversary by performing its Penthouse and Pavement album in its entirety on tour. Here is the band's hit single Temptation.

Jan. 25 is also the 251st anniversary of Scottish poet Robbie Burns' birth. Enjoy your haggis, especially those of you in the United States who can import some of the real stuff again after a 21-year ban.
