The original lyrics for the song were about a totalitarian society that made everyone wear their sunglasses at night; however under pressure from Hart's record company to make something more marketable, the song was altered to be more "romantic".

Kraftwerk were originally uncredited as authors for the song, marking the beginning of a sampling trend towards the group's catalog that has continued to be abused by many other artists. Soon after, the group pursued legal action against Bambaataa and Tommy Boy Records which proved to be successful. It is claimed by many that Planet Rock elevated hip hop music to the next level, and was the genesis of electro music.

Mystery substance in Oakville
In 1994, over a two-week period in August, gelatinous substance reportedly fell from the sky six times. The mysterious goo allegedly contained white blood cells and several acids from the human stomach, and was reported to infect anyone it touched with symptoms of exhaustion, breathing problems, heavy perspiration, fainting, and other flu-like symptoms. Several animals in the area are reported to have perished because of this. 
The whole story was published in a 1995 episode of Unsolved Mysteries. The mystery was later termed "acid rain" by authorities, although some believe it was evidence of chem trails.

I think this is an even funnier detail in the "Y.M.C.A." article:
Producer Henri Belolo recalls that he saw the YMCA sign while walking down the street with composer Jacques Morali, who seemed to know the institution fairly well: "Henri, let me tell you something. This is a place where a lot of people go when they are in town. And they get good friends and they go out." And Henri got the idea: "Why don't we write a song about it?"
This must've been written tongue-in-cheek, there's no mention at all in the article about what YMCA meant to gay culture.

The Mekon's widow is known to have written to Jacques Delors, President of the European Commission, in 1993. Her letter reads: "Dear M. Delors, I used to be married to the Mekon, who, curiously, was remarkably endowed. Now widowed (you may recall his death when he was sucked into the planet Zurkon), I can only work upon his memory. The standard Essex cucumber has both the colour and, more importantly, the shape to give at least physical comfort. In the light of these points, I would be obliged if you were to inhibit the straightening of these vegetables - at least until after my death. Yours sincerely, Mrs Mekon"

Robin's Nest was a British sitcom starring Richard O'Sullivan as Robin Tripp, one of the lead characters in the sitcom Man About the House, which had ended in 1976. Robin's Nest aired for six series from 1977 to 1981, and co-starred Tessa Wyatt as Robin's girlfriend and later wife and Tony Britton as her father. It was made by Thames Television and aired on ITV.
Creators Cooke and Mortimer had to get special permission from the IBA (the then governing body of Independent TV in Britain) to be able to portray an unmarried couple living together; special concern arose at scenes in which Robin and Vicky were seen in an obvious state of undress in bed. In 1978, Robin and Vicky were married and later had a set of twins.

After making the winning bid of $50,000, Ebersol was given a private performance of the song at Simon's home. After a lunch of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and vodka on the rocks, Simon whispered the subject into his ear. A condition of that prize is that Ebersol would not reveal to anyone the actual subject. Later, Ebersol revealed that he was allowed by Simon to divulge a clue about the person's name.
