What is the best song that begins with the letter M? See rules in OP


  • Submissions are limited to 5 per person.

  • Exclude articles such as “a”, “an”, “the”, etc. that begin the title. Example: “The Hokey Pokey” belongs in the H poll, not the T poll.

  • Exclude titles that begin with punctuation, such as an apostrophe, parenthesis, etc.

  • You must include the artist (not the composer, unless they are the same person) or your submission will not be counted.

  • Polls will appear in this thread once we reach 100 or 150 nominations, depending on when we hit a wall.

  • Classical releases are excluded.

  • Final poll, also in this thread, will narrow the field to 10.

I’m gonna hold off on two just in case something really good occurs to me, but I’m confident in these three. If you’ve not heard the Mariner’s Revenge song, it’s worth checking out: maybe not the most musically inventive, but as a story song/sea shanty it’s great.
