Following on from best lyrics...

Kewcumber Sun 01-Jul-07 13:05:02

my vote would be

Deanna Carter - "Did I shave my legs for this?"

anorak Sun 01-Jul-07 13:15:17

If I said you had a beautiful body would you hold it against me?

Pan Sun 01-Jul-07 13:30:58

Bohemian Rhapsody. Best song title. Best song. Best video. Best band. Best everything. Just best.

Pan Sun 01-Jul-07 14:04:57

just my opinion...not meant as a thread killer........

Pan Sun 01-Jul-07 18:22:32

no, really....

talcy0 Sun 01-Jul-07 18:26:26


lol at pan

doughnuts Sun 01-Jul-07 18:28:00

ds is obsessed with making up imaginary song titles - the latest is 'Solar Powered Horse'

MarsLady Sun 01-Jul-07 18:29:18

Pissed Off - Angie Stone

talcy0 Sun 01-Jul-07 18:31:59

hangover from hell...zodiac mindwarp

WigWamBam Sun 01-Jul-07 18:33:02

There's a Guy Works Down the Chip Shop Swears He's Elvis

or maybe

I'm In Love (With The Girl on the Manchester Virgin Megastore Checkout Desk)

Pan Sun 01-Jul-07 18:34:15

WWB - my you ARE OLD!!!

doughnuts Sun 01-Jul-07 18:36:44

WigWamBam Sun 01-Jul-07 19:01:10

Pan ... you're such a charmer

janeite Sun 01-Jul-07 19:20:27

WWB - yes the Kirsty McColl one is a fab title.

Snow Patrol yave a song called something like "Pass The Balsamic inegar, quick you fool" which is pretty impressive too!

Also - "Bikini Girls With Machine Guns" - The Cramps.

janeite Sun 01-Jul-07 19:20:51

Balsamic inegar - please translate as vinegar

Kewcumber Sun 01-Jul-07 19:48:57

I still think my original one wins (but then I would, wouldn't I)

Pan Sun 01-Jul-07 19:51:23

Kew - one of my friends fav. albums has this on the front....she looking all hot, he sat down on a chair with a beer....this right?

Kewcumber Sun 01-Jul-07 20:06:49

thats right - its album title too

SoMuchToBits Sun 01-Jul-07 20:07:06

My sister's dh plays in a jazz band which features among its numbers a piece called "We have seen the cheese."

Kewcumber Sun 01-Jul-07 20:28:09

mmm quite thats one but still doesn;t beat mine.

southeastastra Sun 01-Jul-07 20:29:22

where are the prawns by the soft boys

CatIsSleepy Sun 01-Jul-07 20:32:02

am thinking...
but in the meantime Take the skinheads bowling by Camper Van Beethoven is a good start...

CatIsSleepy Sun 01-Jul-07 20:34:50

but i was forgetting Half Man Half Biscuit (one of the best band names ever...)

I love you because (you look like Jim reeves)

also :
I hate Nerys Hughes (from the heart)

I left my heart in Papworth General

Pan Sun 01-Jul-07 20:43:58

Ma/Biscuit - "I am the bastard son of Dean Freedman" "Dulke Prague (Subbuteo) Away Kit) Class.

talcy0 Sun 01-Jul-07 20:51:54

I slept with someone from fall out boy and all i got was this song........fall out boy

CatIsSleepy Sun 01-Jul-07 20:54:32

and don't forget Fuckin' 'ell it's Fred Titmus

and Venus in Flares

{still half man half biscuit...all their songs had great titles though...)

talcy0 Sun 01-Jul-07 20:56:07

champagne for my real friends, real pain for my sham friends....fall out boy..again

CatIsSleepy Sun 01-Jul-07 21:00:14

Margaret on the Guillotine by Morrissey

Kewcumber Sun 01-Jul-07 22:01:32

OK I think "I love you because (you look like Jim reeves)" might beat mine.

CatIsSleepy Sun 01-Jul-07 23:13:30

"99% of Gargoyles Look Like Bob Todd" by Half Man Half Biscuit.
(Bob Todd for any youngsters out there was a grey-haired, bulbous-eyed guy in Benny Hill's TV show).

CatIsSleepy Sun 01-Jul-07 23:23:36

oops was forgetting 'Some girls are bigger than others' by the Smiths. another good 'un.

UnquietDad Sun 01-Jul-07 23:44:20

Oh yes, HMHB have some corkers. "Outbreak of Vitus Gerulaitis", "Dead Men Don't Need Season Tickets, "The Light at the End of the Tunnel (is the Light of an Oncoming Train)"... And "Trouble Over Bridgewater" as an album title!

And don't forget the Pet Shop Boys. "You Only Tell me You Love Me When You're Drunk" and "I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind of Thing".

mummytosteven Sun 01-Jul-07 23:46:25

"Milkman of Human Kindness" by Billy Bragg.

mummytosteven Sun 01-Jul-07 23:46:47

Or Elvis Costello "What's so funny about peace, love and understanding"

CatIsSleepy Sun 01-Jul-07 23:49:07

Work is a 4 letter word, the smiths...

Ellbell Mon 02-Jul-07 00:06:15

How about 'There ain't half been some clever bastards' by Ian Dury and the Blockheads?

I also like 'There's a guy works down the chip-shop swears he's Elvis' by Kirsty McColl.

ghosty Mon 02-Jul-07 01:30:52

My BIL is in a Skiffle band. It is brilliant - they play at festivals and that sort of thing.
Years ago (before he met my sister) he wrote a song called "I'd Rather Go To Hell Than Spend Eternity With You"
I think that is a storming title ...
He wanted to play it at their wedding pmsl
She wouldn't let him [disappointed]

Califrau Mon 02-Jul-07 01:55:23

In these shoes? - Kirsty McColl

Califrau Mon 02-Jul-07 01:58:37

there's a great country ditty called "may the bird of paradise fly up your nose"

MrsJohnCusack Mon 02-Jul-07 02:35:47

ooooooh califrau was going to post the lyrics from 'In these shoes' in the favourite lyrics threads but never got round to it

Califrau Mon 02-Jul-07 03:02:50

So I'm sitting in a bar in Guadalajarra, in walks a man with a far away look in his eyes..."

Bloody LOVE that woman. Waste of a great lyricist and wonderful song writer.

MrsJohnCusack Mon 02-Jul-07 06:17:49

she was a GENIUS
have just been youtubing her - loads of good stuff
(made myself tearful watching Fairytale of New York though)

Kewcumber Mon 02-Jul-07 17:14:21

I saw her at break for the border in the basement in a rare later concert.

Califrau Mon 02-Jul-07 17:48:06

Kewcumber Mon 02-Jul-07 23:08:47

she was excellent and the venue was so small that I could almost touch her.

MrsJohnCusack Tue 03-Jul-07 02:37:11

consumed with

although I did see her at a festival in Ireland in 1992
she was so fab
and she came on to do 'Welcome to the Cheap Seats' with the Wonder Stuff too

Ellbell Tue 03-Jul-07 20:59:01

Can I just add a few s?

Didn't know 'In these shoes?', but have just downloaded it onto my iPod. Brilliant! Best 79p I've spent all week!

niceglasses Tue 03-Jul-07 21:01:18

My Lovely Horse (you're a pony no more)
by Father Ted and Father Dougal

Califrau Tue 03-Jul-07 21:02:10

Oh EllBell - the entire Tropical Brainstorm album is GENIUS. get the lot!

GibbonInARibbon Tue 03-Jul-07 21:06:04

Sit on my face (and tell me that you love me)

Ellbell Tue 03-Jul-07 22:08:52

Might have to do that, Cali.

Ellbell Tue 03-Jul-07 22:09:32

Ahem... Can I just reiterate that that post was aimed at Califrau, not Gibbon !

Califrau Tue 03-Jul-07 22:36:53

just had another Kirsty Moment..."don't come the cowboy with me sonny Jim"

Ellbell Tue 03-Jul-07 22:39:36

Ooh, that's dd1's favourite. (I have 'Kite' on a permanent loop!) She hears about 4 notes and goes... 'Oh, mummy, this is the one where she doesn't want him to come the cowboy'! She is 7!

Kewcumber Wed 04-Jul-07 12:17:11

..."don't come the cowboy with me sonny Jim" - how could I have forgotten that song? How how how? Favorite song to be sung at full volume in the car.

Kewcumber Wed 04-Jul-07 12:19:11


Califrau Wed 04-Jul-07 19:09:35

you wait til DS starts singing it in the car! I had my 2 Mamboing down the hall last night to Tropical brainstorm!
