NME says Thom Yorke is obsessed with transport, but what does that make Moz?

The above link goes to a supposed 'amazing fact' that Thom Yorke's lyrics contain 17 references to cars/driving as well as some to boats, motorways, trains, planes and tanks.

If that's supposedly obessed, Moz must be clinically obsessed. I can think of at least 20 car/driving references, plus a couple of taxis, a van, a truck, a couple of buses, numerous bicycles, a horse, some trains, armoured cars, and a spaceship. Not to mention record sleeves that have featured a car, a motorbike, a bicycle and a plane.

Could one of our resident obsessives please furnish a definitive list, then we can show old Yorkie up as the transport-referencing lightweight that he is!
