Great thread. I'm laughing my ass off reading album titles I've never heard of.
I think any "best of" is my least favorite.
Ones I like that come to mind are:
"Richest Man in Babylon" by Thievery Corporation. Are they talking about Saddam or Chalabi or what?
I also like R. L. Burnside's "A Ass Pocket Of Whiskey".
Spooky Tooth "You Broke my Heart so I Broke Your Jaw"
Frank Zappa "Broken Hearts are for Assholes"
"Titties 'N Beer"
"Don't Eat the Yellow Snow"
"Penguin in Bondage"
"Why Does it Hurt When I Pee?"
"I Promise not to C*me in Your Mouth"
"The Illinois Enema Bandit"
B.B. King "Nobody Loves me But My Mother"
Bare Naked Ladies "Be My Yoko Ono"
Black Sabbath "Fairies Wear Boots"
Blue Rodeo "The Ballad of the Dimestore Greaser and the Blonde Mona Lisa"
Bob Marley "Them Belly Full but we Hungry"
Bruce Cockburn "The Trouble with Normal"
"If I had a Rocket Luancher"
Bryan Adams "The Only Thing That Looks Good on Me is You"
The Clash "Lost in the Supermarket"
Don Henley "You're Not Drinking Enough"
Downchild Blues Band "Tryin' to Keep Her 88's Straight"

The Tragically Hip "Gus: The Polar Bear from Central Park"
Believe it or not, many years ago when Steve McCormack and I were much younger, we played, "Walk With An Erection" by The Swinging Erudites at CES.
We were in a room where "serious" listening was going on and Steve ask if he could play his own disc.
Everyone stood around nodding their head, thinking it was the Bangles, "Walk Like an Egyptian".
I still laugh today, remembering the look on Steve McCormack's face as he patted his foot to the music and examined expressions around the room.
There used to be a lot more fun in high end audio.
Tuff Darts: "Your love is like a nuclear waste" ( they should stamp contaminated right across your face )
Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band with the Rootettes: "Party till you puke"
The Mentors: Most any song title applies here. If you're familiar with El Duece and crew, you know what i mean : )
Talking Heads: "More songs about buildings and food"
Buzzcocks: "Singles going steady"
Tonio K: "Life in the foodchain"
Primus: Sailing the seas of cheese / Professor Nutbutter's house of treats / Wynona's big brown beaver / Those damned blue collar tweekers / The air is getting slippery / etc...
Flaming Lips: "Yoshimi vs the Pink Robots"
Public Image Limited: "This is not a love song"
Wire: "12XU" ( pronounced "one two ex you" and i hope you get the meaning )
Devo: "Jocko Homo"
Monster Magnet: "Look to your orb for the warning"
Ned's Atomic Dustbin: "Kill your television"
Group X: "Stepping on the Crowtche owf Your American President" ( yes, this is the actual spelling and name of their latest CD release )
If you liked the type of music listed above and / or have a sense of humour, try checking out this home-brewed flash animation video from Group X. If you turn on your computer speakers ( hint, hint ), you can hear the "world famous Arabian rap group" ( how they bill themselves ) performing the song "Bang, Bang, Bang". If you are easily offended by "Arabian gangsta rap", don't bother because you won't like it. Be forewarned though. Arabian rap is obviously a bit different than American rap. These guys hate P Diddy : ) Sean
I've got about a half dozen more songs / "videos" for that band, all done in the same vein. If enough people are interested, i'll post links to them. The "cool" thing about it is that all of these "videos" were made by fans for the band, not by the band themselves. The very crude and low tech flash animation really blends well with the "minimalistic" music, doesn't it? Sean
PS... I'll take "Arabian rap" over "American rap" any day of the week : )
