COMPETITION #3: The "Most Ridiculous Song Titles Of All Time" Mixtape

This is pretty self-explanatory. Also, this gives a chance to some of you who are having some difficulty with the sites to simply post your song titles. The song itself might be ridiculous or normal, but the title must be ridiculous.

For this one - feel free to link to a muxtape or mixwit - but actually type out the artist and song title in your comment.

This list will be due Sunday June 8th at 10pm.

Nice Jesus-themed submission! The full title to Drop Kick Me Jesus is "Drop Kick Me Jesus Through the Goalposts of Life" for those that didn't know it or couldn't infer the sweet context for that gem originally by Bobby Bare.

I honestly didn't set out to pick only country but that's what happened. Hey I voted in the thing but Kate's list made me think you should do "most ridiculous songs about Jesus" next time.

800 Pound Jesus -Sawyer Brown
I know this one's not about lyrics but you MUST read them: http://www.completealbumlyrics.com/lyric/45134/Sawyer+Brown+-+800+Pound+Jesus.html

Refried Dreams - Tim McGraw

Beer for My Horses - Toby Keith

I'm in Love with a Capital U - Joe Diffie

Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under? - Shania Twain

Here is my list -

"I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)" Meat Loaf

"Good Girls Go To Heaven (Bad Girls Go Everywhere)" Meat Loaf

"Big Girls Don't Cry (Personal)" Fergie

"Rocket Man (I Think It's Going to be a Long Long Time)" Elton John

and "Baba O'Reilly" The Who - which I believe does not include (Teenage Wasteland) in the title.

Basically I just think parentheses are ridiculous. But the Jesus song titles are funnier :)
