Favorite song names

What are your favorite song titles?

That is all.

No restrictions or parameters other than “post at least one song name (and the artist) that you really like for whatever reason.” You can explain your choice(s) if you like, but absolutely no explanation, commentary, or other elaboration is required.

To get the ball rolling:

Quote Unquote - Mr. Bungle

Squeeze Me Macaroni - Mr. Bungle

Vengeance is Sleeping - Neko Case

I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles - Dean Martin

They Call Me Guitar Hurricane - Guitar Slim

“I Promise Not to Come in Your Mouth” - Frank Zappa

What makes it funny is the description in the liner notes: “A sensitive instrumental ballad for late-nite easy listening.”

If I Had It To Do All Over Again, I’d Do It All Over You.
Mama Get A Hammer, (There’s A Fly On The Baby’s Head).

Als Luise die Briefe ihres ungetreuen Liebhabers verbrannte


Because much words with mucher letters :slight_smile:

(more or less “While Louise Was Burning Her Unfaithful Lover’s Letters”)

Also a dynamic duo of titles from songs by Debussy



(Yeah, me neither.)

Christmas Card From A Hooker In Minneapolis- Tom Waits wrote it, but I prefer** Neko Case**'s version

Don’t Try To Lay No Boogie-Woogie On The King Of Rock’n’Roll- Long John Baldry

Just fun titles

The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down- The Band Solid title. Solid song.

All That Will Be Has Become, All That Has Come Isn’t Gone- Arboretum

“Debbie Gibson is Pregnant with My Two-Headed Love Child” by Mojo Nixon.

“Careful With That Axe, Eugene” by Pink Floyd.

December Hunting For Vegetarian Fuckface- Stars of the Lid

Do parody songs count?

Psycho Chicken - The Fools

“Party at a Rich Dude’s House” - Kesha

Drop Kick Me Jesus Through the Goal Posts of Life
-Bobby Bare

Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town - Pearl Jam

“Rainy Day Women #12 and 35” - Bob Dylan

“Baba O’Riley” - The Who

I mentioned the above because most people think those songs are called something else.

“Prelude To The Afternoon Of A Sexually Aroused Gas Mask” - who else, Frank Zappa

I’m a Cranky Old Yank in a Clanky Old Tank on the Streets of Yokohama with My Honolulu Mama Doin’ Those Beat-o, Beat-o Flat-On-My-Seat-o, Hirohito Blues - by Hoagy Charmichael

A couple country classics:

Get your Tongue Out Of My Mouth, I’m Kissing You Goodbye-- Waylon Jennings

Pardon Me, I’ve Got Someone To Kill-- Johnny Paycheck

“Toads of the Short Forest”
“Weasels Ripped My Flesh”

Transfusion, by Nervous Norvous

The Biggest Parakeets in Town, Judd Strunk

Everything counts. Hell, you don’t even have to actually like the song itself, as long as you find the title compelling for whatever reason.
