Having a listen to some stuff today and put on an old Buffalo Springfield album, wondered how much stuff they must have been on to come up with -

'Flying on the ground is wrong'

Care to share your most wierd song title from your collection if you have one?

I was a big 'Yes' fan in the 70's, and also 'REO Speedwagon'...I still am, but don't play their stuff as often nowadays.

One of the Yes albums is called 'Tormato', and has a squashed tomato effect on the cover.

One of REO Speedwagons albums is called 'You Can Tune a Piano, but You Can't Tuna Fish'

Awesome responses, thank you; proves the art of songwriting isn't restricted to the lyrics. Really good to see once again the benefit of your knowledge of music Orson...and the band names themselves, maybe we should have a thread about the strangest band names? really takes me back to my teen years, were we lucky to have lived through such a period of music I wonder?

A couple that spring to mind

Shirley Ellis - Ever See a Diver Kiss His Wife While the Bubbles Bounce About Above the Water?

Rod Stewart And The Faces - 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)
( This single reached number 12 over Christmas 1974 in the UK singles chart.
The song still holds the record for the longest song-title ever to hit the UK chart)

The title of the thread is also a bit strange as should be spelt weird not wierd
(it's one of those words that doesn't follow the I before E except after C rule)

A couple I can think of : -

Genesis - I know what I like (in my wardrobe), which also has the line - Me i'm just a lawnmower - you can tell me by the way I walk.

Gryphon - The last flash of Gaberdine Tailor.

Donovan - The Intergalactic Laxative ...will get you from here to there.

Jethro Tull - Jack Frost and the Hooded Crow.
