Songs not named what you thought

From a Buick 6
Ballad of a Thin Man
Motorpsycho Nitemare
Rainy Day Women #12&35
Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues
Spanish Harlem Incident
Bob Dylan’s 115th Dream
Ballad in Plain D

OK, just found this:

Just about everything ever recorded by Stereolab.

This title, and the band name are kinda kooky: Ancestors - YouTube

Damn catchy little tune, though.

The most repeated part is at the end…“We can make it happen.”

isnt it ironic that mitchell and dylan dont like and try to avoid other when there in the same place ?

If it comes to that, “Starry, Starry Night” (also by Don McLean) is actually titled “Vincent.”

(Speaking of, would love to hear SunUp ’s “different reasons”…)

Same reason I wouldn’t allow “Tequila” - one word in the song that is in fact its title.

OK, “Wipe out” is two words and technically doesn’t happen in the song but it is on the recording. I’d still disallow it.

It wasn’t until very recently that I found out that Golden Earring’s When the Bullet Hits the Bone is actually titled Twilight Zone.

This one just struck me (but don’t worry, I’ll recover):
Neither this thread nor that extensive list a few posts above mentions
A Simple Desultory Phillipic (lyrics here) by Paul Simon.

Speaking of Paul Simon lyrics, there’s also
El Condor Pasa (lyrics here).

Chicago has a song called I’m a Man. They also have A Song for You, which frequently has I’m a Man. I do know the titles of the two songs but when I hear either it takes a half a second to figure out the name.
It’s similar to Dan Seals. Is he the England Dan with John Ford Coley or Seals with Crofts? (he’s England Dan)

It’s “Edge of Seventeen,” not “White Winged Dove.”

You mean “One Winged Dove”. :wink:

Never mind. I see I was beaten to it.
