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?
Stairway to Heaven
Highway to Hell
Got one more:
The Cure - Lovesong
P.I.L. - This Is Not A Lovesong
Paula Cole - I Don’t Want to Wait
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…
