The inimitable "Blind Eyes" sung to the tune of "Bright Eyes", sadly never released as a single. The unforgettable line "How did the limbs that sprung so quickly suddenly become so sticky... You got mixy" says it all really.

And for those who are interested... the obligatory YouTube link.

The lyrics are listed in the info box. Lovely.

I suppose I could add Entrails Ripped From A Virgin's C#*t by Cannibal Corpse to the list.

"How can I tell you that I love you, when you're sitting on my face?" Billy Connolly although he may have nicked it from Python.

Actually, there is a lot of oddly titled Of Montreal songs. Such as 'Tim I Wish You Were Born a Girl', 'Advice from a Divorced Gentleman to His Bachelor Friend Considering Marriage', 'A Man's Life Flashing Before His Eyes While He and His Wife Drive Off a Cliff into the Ocean', 'Wraith Pinned to the Mist and Other Games', the entirety of the album 'Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?'...

You know what? I take it all back. I don't think there's such thing as a normally titled Of Montreal song.

Snuff's first album title:

Snuffsaidbutgorblimeyguvstonemeifhedidntthrowawobblerchachachachachachachachachachachayouregoinghomeinacosmicambience

Later efforts Flibbiddydibbiddydob and Demmamussabebonk could never match up though.

I had to google it, as mine's in the loft, but I thought Prairie Home Invasion had wackier titles than it actually does.

"Hamlet Chicken Plant Disaster" and "Nostalgia for an Age That Never Existed" fit I suppose.

Bands who can always be relied on for bixarre song titles include the Happy Flowers, whose line up consists of Mr Anus and Mr Horribly Charred Infant. Their songs include:

Mom I gave the cat some acid
Let's eat the baby (like the gerbils did)
All my toys hate me
Daddy Melted
The Vaccuum Ate Timmy
Make the cat stop talking
If this gun were real i could shoot you and sleep in the bigger bed wih Mommy

"Taste these forbidden fruits and they'll do you much worse than just throwing you out of paradise" by All: My: Faults from the album "First.aid.killed.the.jerboa."

I'd say the band and album names are more absurd than the song title!

Electric Six's fourth album is called

The masters of the song title have to be the Wirral's finest export- Half man Half Biscuit.
Just a few that come into my head:

All I want For Christmas Is A Dukla Prague Away Kit
Fucking Hell It's Fred Titmus
24 Hour Garage People
Joy Division Oven Gloves
The Len Ganley Stance

They are also responsible for one of my favourite lines ever:

"Is your child hyper-active? Or perhaps is he a twat?"

Tim Minchin's lyrics are quite odd, even if his song titles aren't overly odd.

One such song is "Inflatable You," a love song about... I'll let you guess...

Can Blue Men Sing the Whites?

When Yuba Plays The Rhumba On The Tuba Down In Cuba
Noises for the Leg
Music for the Head Ballet
