Favorite song names

“Don’t Go Home with Your Hard On” - Leonard Cohen

“Egg and Daughter Nite, Lincoln, Nebraska, 1967” - John Prine

“Come Back to Us Barbara Lewis Hare Krishna Beauregard” - John Prine

“My Shit’s Fucked Up” - Warren Zevon

“Monkey Wash Donkey Rinse” - Warren Zevon

“The Needle and the Damage Done” - Neil Young

“This is gonna hurt” from The Ring soundtrack by Hans Zimmer.

Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand - Primitive Radio Gods

Abacab - Genesis (the name originated from the three song fragments – titled A, B, and C – that the band strung together to make this song)
The Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys - Traffic (taken from an inscription that actor Michael J. Pollard placed in a book for Jim Capaldi)

The Edge of Seventeen - Stevie Nicks (the name came from Nicks mishearing Tom Petty’s first wife, Jane, saying that she met Tom “at the age of seventeen”)
Lawyers, Guns and Money - Warren Zevon

“Anal Retentive Calliope Music” — FZ, duh. I suggested this when my high school English reached asked us for an example of trochaic tetrameter. Or was it iambic? Whatever!

“Neon Meat Dreame of a Octafish” — Captain Beefheart. Misspelling and a/an violation intentional, apparently. A friend once dressed as this for Halloween.

“Jazz Discharge Party Hats” — more FZ. The song is a raunchy story (sorry about the misogyny), set to guitar by Steve Vai - a reminder that our every utterance is musical.

This, of course, is the ultimate answer to the OP.

And, in case you’ve never heard it:


ETA: “The Dangerous Kitchen” — same album and musical method as “Jazz…”, but safe for work (and for kids).

Jazz: Delicious Hot, Disgusting Cold-- Bonzo Dog Band

Can Blue Men play the Whites?-- Bonzo Dog Band

Pull the Trigger, Sunshine-- The Groovaholics

Anything off the Victorialand album by Cocteau Twins, or their*The Moon and the Melodies*collab with Harold Budd. Ooze Out and Away, Onehow is an especial favourite. Actually, many other Cocteaus titles thrill me in their earnest tweeness:
Ella Megablast Burls Forever
Frou-Frou Foxes In Midsummer Fires
It’s All But an Ark Lark
Spooning Good Singing Gum
Suckling the Mender
When Mama Was A Moth

This Mortal Coil’s The Horizon Bleeds and Sucks Its Thumb is a great one, too. Maybe it’s a common 4AD thing, let’s check:
Dead Can Dance has some lovelies: As The Bell Rings The Maypole Spins, Fortune Presents Gifts Not According To The Book, *The Ubiquitous Mr. Lovegrove *

His Name Is Alive: Caroline’s Supposed Demon, You and I Have Seizures, How Ghosts Affect Relationships, Hope Called in Sick, There’s Something Between Us and He’s Changing My Words…I could go on.

“Somebody’s Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In Tonite” - Fleetwood Mac

“Plexiglas Toilet” - Styx

“Supernatural Superserious” - REM

I believe it’s the actual form of the song. A is the verse, B is the chorus, C is the bridge.

Chorus - Out.
These are my song titles:

“Goodbye Francine”
“Daddio (King of the World)”
“90 in a 45”

No, literally, those are my song titles. I wrote them.

That should be Ella Megalast.

David Allan Coe, Cum Stains On The Pillow Hard to beat that for a descriptive title.

Loudon Wainright Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road Best song about roadkill ever.

Dylan of course has some winners:
It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry
Rainy Day Women #12 and 35
Motorpsycho Nightmare

“All My Ex’s Live in Texas” - George Strait
“Tonight I’m Gonna Rock You Tonight” - Spinal Tap
