Oddly, I only own two of those songs. I was thinking of turning it into a meme and dig through my mp3 collection.

Certainly, Buffett's "My Head Hurts, My Feet Stink, And I Don't Love Jesus" would be on the list somewhere.

Word ver - omenat - that's prophetic.

The university of colorado has an annual song title competition. You don't have to have a song, just a title! ;^)

My favorite has been "I can't get over you, so you'll have to get up and answer the phone yourself".

Hahaha, that #10 makes me want to get in the shower.

You glaringly omitted "Detachable Penis" and "Debbie Gibson Is My Two-Headed Love Child"! Funny list :)

Cora said...

Pfffft! Too funny!

Ummmm, how 'bout these:

"Pope On A Rope (Cigarette Butt)" ~ the Squirrels

"F*cking in Rhythm & Sorrow" ~ The Sugarcubes

"Take Some Petrol Darling" ~ The Sugarcubes

"Get Your Hands Off My Woman (Motherf*cker)" ~ The Darkness

"Bigmouth Strikes Again" ~ The Smiths

"Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others" ~ The Smiths

and of course....

"Blister In The Sun" ~ Violent Femmes

Oh! And I forgot "Ballerina Out Of Control" by The Ocean Blue. I love the title of that one!

Brilliant song too.

There are a lot of funny/crazy titles out there. "Get Drunk & Be Somebody", "Hmm Hmm Hmm Hmm", "You're The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly", etc.

To Cora: The Ocean Blue also came out with "I've Sung One Too Many Songs For a Crowd That Didn't Want To Hear". My sisters loved that band growing up and played them a lot (probably too much).

Whoever came up with the concept of Reindeer and Grandma deserves a medal or something.
