Boy, i could fill this thread up with a bunch of ripe trash from my youth, but i'll pass. Sean

Sean: I've not heard that tune before - is it yours?... :-)
I have Wesley Willis' Shake Your Piggy Bank in my car's CD player right now. About a third of the tracks have memorable titles. For the song list, go to: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00004TRRO/qid=1046607740/sr=1-10/ref=sr_1_10/103-5622878-5410255?v=glance&s=music
Amazon got the title of the first song wrong. It should read: "I WHUPPED Mighty Thor's Ass."
One that comes to mind is from the Kansas "Leftoverture" LP from the mid-70's... Part of a big instrumental number called:
"Father Padilla Meets the Perfect Gnat"
Interesting, to say the least.
'Rufus Is a Tit Man' - Loudon Wainwright III
(It's about his son)
" How can I miss you when you wont go away"
I Feel Like Breakin Up Someone's Home
by Etta James. Yow.
I'm not sure if it's the title, but Albert Collin's, while singing the blues, reminds his woman that 'a good fool is hard to find.'
"They don't make Jews like Jesus anymore"-Kinky Friedman
ah, Wesley Willis! not only each title, but just about every line of evey song.
Take this job and shove it. - Johnny Paycheck
If Wesley Willis is the guy that i think he is, i can understand why his stuff comes across as being a "doozy". Sean
Two from "Forever Changes" by Love (I'm quoting from memory here):
"Alone Again Or"
"The Good Humor Man, He Sees Everything Like This"
Stuck In A Pagoda With Trisha Toyota
Not sure if this is actually the title from the '80's song. If you lived in LA during that time you may remember that foxy Japanese news anchorwoman from Channel 4 news.
See Jungle! See Jungle! Go Join Your Gang, Yeah, City All Over! Go Ape Crazy! by Bow Wow Wow. See my user name.
"Somebody throwed lye on my dog" by The Horseflies.
"several species of small furry animals gathered together in a cave and grooving with a pict." Pink Floyd
I chased her up a tree and kissed her between the limbs
Eddaytona: That is a song by The Dickies aka "The Incredible Shrinking Dickies".
Since we are wandering down that lane, i'll add a few of the tamer ones that i can remember:
"You drive me ape, you big gorilla" by the Dickies
"Bring on the nubiles" and "Nice & Sleazy" by the Stranglers
"Love comes in spurts" by Richard Hell & the Voidoids
"Your love is like a nuclear waste" by Tuff Darts
"Jocko Homo" by Devo
"(I'm lookin thru) Gary Gilmore's Eyes" by the Adverts
And if you are wondering, yes, i was a very disturbed youth : ) Sean
"Don't touch Me There" by The Tubes
Unlikely phrase: "whistle thru your teeth & spit" (G-Dead). "My piano has been drinking (not me)" T. Waits
"She'd Rather Be Homeless Than Here at Home With Me" and "Ain't Too Old to Cut the Mustard, Jus' Too Tired to Spread it Around", a pair of Shel Silverstein tunes from the Old Dogs album. Sang these at our choir's pops concert last month, brought down the house. A lot of great titles in country music.
She got the goldmine, I got the shaft!!!
Mark Chesnut I think.
