Song titles with opposite meanings

I’m watching the D. A. Pennebaker 1989 Depeche Mode documentary “101” (it’s a strange film, with the parallel footage of the fan bus travelers, but Depeche Mode were absolutely on top of their game), and they played “Behind The Wheel”. The thought struck me that the title is the straight opposite of “Passenger Side”, a very different song by Wilco. So I thought this could be fun. So what are your examples?

Kaskade - Angel On My Shoulder

Faith Marie - Devil On My Shoulder

Stairway to Heaven

Highway to Hell

Opus III It’s A Fine Day

R.E.M. - Bad Day


Neko Case - Hold on, Hold on

Frou Frou - Let Go

Got one more:

The Cure - Lovesong

P.I.L. - This Is Not A Lovesong

k.d. lang - Constant Craving

Devo - Satisfaction


Moby - Wait for me

Paula Cole - I Don’t Want to Wait

Morris Day ~ Don’t Wait For Me

I suppose we could follow this up with McCartney’s The Back Seat Of My Car.

That’s excellent! If if there’s a song called “In The Trunk”, we can complete the cycle.

Baby come to me by James Ingram.
Just go away by Blondie.

In a similar vein:

Muddy Waters - I Can’t Be Satistfied

Van Morrison - Satisfied

I guess we won’t find another such combination of classical songs.

Debbie Boone - “You Took My Heart By Surprise”

GG Allin - “I Don’t Give a Shit”

I don’t know of any such song, but there IS a Rumbleseat.

There are a couple of tracks on YouTube entitled “Junk in the Trunk”.

The Beatles - I’m a Loser

Ringo Starr - I’m the Greatest

Both written by John Lennon.

Beck – Where It’s At

Del Amitri – Not Where It’s At

Roy Orbison - Crying

Pharell Williams - Happy

Hello - Lionel Ritchie

Goodbye Today - Anatomic

Love Is a Rose - Neil Young/Linda Ronstadt
Love Stinks - J. Geils Band

Except that the Devo song is about NOT getting satisfied…
