duplicate post

[suggesting the Mamas’ and Papas’ Monday Monday, free for anyone to nominate]

As much as it pains me to axe Warren Zevon, done.

Save this one for the Qs! The proper title is "Quinn the Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn). So you get another entry if you’d like.


Yeah, I had it already checked in my brain for the Q thread, though I would nominate the original Dylan version.

Making Believe - Emmylou Harris
Malo - Bebe
Maggot Brain - Funkadelic
Mississippi Goddam - Nina Simone (still timely!)
Million Reasons - Lady Gaga

And others that didn’t make my final list, but I hope others might pick up on: My Boyfriends Back - The Angels; Mannish Boy - Muddy Waters; MMMBop - Hanson; Mockingbird - Inez & Charlie Foxx; Mexican Radio - Wall of Voodoo; Morning Morgantown - Joni Mitchell

And finally, I wish I hadn’t joined in the prohibition on classical music. Here’s Beethoven, shredded:

Moonlight Sonata - Tina S

So many M songs I want in the mix. Here are some more suggestions:

Mack the Knife – Bobby Darin
Madman Across the Water – Elton John
Magic Carpet Ride – Steppenwolf
Man in Black – Johnny Cash
Margaritaville – Jimmy Buffet
Marquee Moon – Television
Miss You – The Rolling Stones
Modern Love – David Bowie
Mother’s Little Helper – The Rolling Stones
Mr. Soul – Buffalo Springfield
Mrs. Robinson – Simon & Garfunkel

Ok my last one

Mystery Achievement - The Pretenders

I don’t think this counts, since Scott Joplin is the composer and not the recording artist.

Mr. Blue Sky - Electric Light Orchestra
Money For Nothing - Dire Straits
More Than Words - Extreme
Mayor of Simpleton - XTC
Mahna Mahna - The Muppets

He was a pianist/performer as well as a composer. My dad had dozens of his records.

Joplin made a lot of piano rolls which have been recorded. It’s not my call, but it seems good enough to me.

Make You Feel My Love - Adele
Monkey Man - Amy Winehouse
Man On The Moon - REM

I’ll post the other two when I find replacements for the ones @EinsteinsHund got to first (Damn! - Move It On Over and Mama You Been On My Mind)


ETA - Here they are

Murder Tonight In The Trailer Park - Cowboy Junkies
Man Out Of Time - Elvis Costello

A Mighty Wind - The New Main Street Singers, et al

Man of Steel - Frank Black
More Human Than Human - White Zombie
More Than This - Roxy Music
Making Plans for Nigel - XTC
Manamanah - The Muppets

Also the fantastic “The Man Who Was Too Loud” you just reminded me of. So @Mean_Mr.Mustard, please scratch “Mercury Blues” from my nominations and take this Frank Black and the Catholics song.
