    Same here. In fact I've so little time to discover new music this week I've decided I'm going to vote for my favourite wacky titles rather than the songs themselves*.


    *With a little caveat that I will pop back to properly listen to them another time.

    1. Friends Make Garbage (Good Friends Take It Out) - Low Roar @Richard Channing (it sounds very Twin Peaks-y)
    2. Motorcycle Emptiness – Manic Street Preachers @Emelee (this song made me think of another band, early/mid-80s I think...but who is it)
    3. Pineapple Face - Revenge @Long Lashes
    4. A Simple Desultory Philippic or How I Was Robert McNamara'd Into Submission - Simon & Garfunkel @Angela Channing
    5. There’s a Guy Works Down the Chip Shop Swears He’s Elvis – Kirsty McCall @Ome
    6. Throwing Fire at the Sun – Heather Nova @Emelee
    7. The Power of Orange Knickers - Tori Amos feat. Damien Rice @Angela Channing
    8. Cossus Snufsigalonica – Fear Of Tigers @Richard Channing (haha, I almost didn't recognize it, and I love the word Snufsigalonica, maybe for the unused Dynasty names?)
    9. You Can Make Me Dance, Sing or Anything (Even Take the Dog for a Walk, Mend a Fuse, Fold Away the Ironing Board, or Any Other Domestic Shortcomings) - Rod Stewart & The Faces @Long Lashes (and it really is a very nice song, what a surprise!)

    I've come to the conclusion that songs with whacky titles are often not very good. However, there are some diamonds in the dirt and here are my top 10:
    1. Je Cherche Un Imbecile - Claire Elzière @Mel O'Drama
    2. Bedbugs & Ballyhoo – Echo & The Bunnymen @Long Lashes
    3. If You Can't Live Without Me, Why Aren't You Dead Yet? - Mayday Parade @Richard Channing
    4. Matterhorny - The Alpentribe @Willie Oleson
    5. Bring Your Daughter...To the Slaughter – Iron Maiden @Ome
    6. Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft (The Recognised Anthem Of World Contact Day) - Carpenters @Mel O'Drama
    7. Lemon Incest - Serge Gainsbourg @Willie Oleson
    8. Friends Make Garbage (Good Friends Take It Out) - Low Roar @Richard Channing
    9. Unseen Footage from a Forthcoming Funeral – Nicole Sabounet @Emelee
    10. The Size of a Cow – The Wonder Stuff @Ome
    I have a whacky idea that @Willie Oleson chose this week's theme.

    I think there's a difference between unusual or abstract titles and the obvious novelty titles.
    To be honest I had braced myself for lots of awful parodies and novelty songs, therefore I was pleasantly surprised to find so many good songs in these lists, and I had to narrow it down from 16 favourites to 10.

    Resist, resist! You'll become the slave of your own fortune. Things you need to buy (no you don't), things you need to do (no you don't)

    And aaaaaaaaall that money isn't going to buy us precious votes.
    Reach out to your inner self, Emelee. Come back to us, it's not too late!

    Or you could do what @Mel O'Drama is going to do and just vote for your favourite titles if you don't have time to listen to them all.

    F.Y.I.:
    Ome has sponteanously and voluntarily given me proxy to deny certain guesses, and now I say that revenge guesses are not allowed.
    So..mention someone else, Richard:)

    Your # 1 and 2 were two of my favourites that I had to sacrifice, so I'm glad they ended up in your list.

    Oh nice. Fate has obviously stepped in to make sure they weren't overlooked. All we need now is for our next voters to include your other four sacrifices. ;)
