The song that is played to wake everyone up is Edith Piaf's "Non, je ne regrette rien". Marion Cottillard (Mal) played Piaf in the biopic La Vie En Rose and won an Oscar for it. See more...

Deliberate "mistake": During the mob scene outside Saito's love nest, the same black Saab is seen getting firebombed twice. It was shot from two different angles, with the two shots played about a minute apart to give the impression of two cars getting bombed. Also, in the first angle it is clear the car has no engine.
Revealing: When Ariadne is pulling the two huge mirrors close together underneath the bridge with Cobb, watch her when she is closing the second mirror. She steps over something even though there is nothing present for her to step over. There must have been a green screen frame there for her to step over.
Continuity: At the beginning of the movie, when Cobb and Arthur are on the top of the building about to get into a helicopter to leave, they find Saito in their helicopter. During the dialogue between Saito and Cobb, the window of the helicopter behind Saito is wet and being rained on. But when the camera cuts to Cobb outside the helicopter, it is not raining at all. This happens multiple times in the scene. As the helicopter flies away at the end of the scene, there is no rain.
Deliberate "mistake": The exact same filmed footage of sleeping Arthur is shown in two different scenes inside the van. This repeated slow-motion scene shows his left hand rising and two spherical droplets of water drift towards his right eye. It can be first seen when the van is being chased out of an alley and makes a right turn onto a street. Then is can be seen again soon after the motorcycle rider smashes into the windscreen. Watch for it when the van passes through open gates and makes a right turn.
Continuity: In the scene where Ariadne finds out that the only way Cobb can dream is by being hooked up to the machine. When she first walks in and sees him sleeping on the chair she has a purse over her left arm. But in the next shot, she has no purse on either shoulder and their no shot showing her putting the purse down.
