I was thinking of doing a post about songs that mention mothers and it got me thinking of Lady Madonna and that got me thinking of What I Got (because it’s the same tune) and that got me thinking about how I think one of the Sublime albums has the best title of all time and that got me thinking about seeing Cadillac Records and how everyone involved had a great name (you can’t beat Howlin Wolf or Muddy Waters for names and I Can’t Be Satisfied and Killing Floor aren’t bad name either)…and that gave me an idea for a post.
What’s the best title for an album ever?
For me, this is a slam dunk. Forty Ounces To Freedom.
What’s the best name for a band ever?
I know you all think I’m a dad rock kind of a guy but I’m going to get a little contemporary here and go with Hurray for the Riff Raff.
What’s the best name for a song ever?
I think when you get down to it you can’t beat some of the old blues stuff — I Can’t Be Satisfied, Dark Was The Night Cold Was The Ground, Stones In My Passway. I mean, that says it all, right? I also like Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell, though.
Finally, how about songs about mothers?
I’ll go with the one in the title here. There’s one I like even better but it’s a little dark (though very upbeat!) because it begins with a hearse.
