Not forgetting the

"Intro and the outro"
"Here comes the equestrian statue"
"11 Mustachioed daughters"
"The bride stripped bare by 'Bachelors'"
"Labio dental fricative"

And of course "Cool Britannia"

Quote:
Cool Britannia
Britannia you are cool (take a trip)
Britains ever ever ever shall be hip
(Hit me, hit me)

Well... I didn't include those as they weren't that absurd... but Cool Britannia is ever ever ever getting stuck in my head.

They're not? You obviously live in a much more interesting world than I.

"face of jesus in my soup" by Avi Paul Weinstein.

"Enniscorthy in a Bottle" by The Bloody Irish Boys

Two songs I downloaded from last.fm the other day :D The second one's quite a fun one :)

I've just realised that this should be Britons, not Britains or Britain's.

How about Pink Floyd's Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict from Ummagumma?

Captain Beefheart - A Carrot Is As Close As A Rabbit Gets To A Diamond is one of my favourite titles

"The Black Hawk War, or, How to Demolish an Entire Civilization and Still Feel Good About Yourself in the Morning, or, We Apologize for the Inconvenience but You're Going to Have to Leave Now, or, 'I Have Fought the Big Knives and Will Continue to Fight Them Until They Are Off Our Lands!'" -Sufjan Stevens

The entire Illinois album has odd titles like that, all 22 tracks. Lovely music though.

Modern rock bands always have the best ones:

Our Lawyer Made us Change the Name of this Song so we Wouldn't get Sued by Fall Out Boy.

I've got a Dark Alley and a Bad Idea That Says You Should Shut Your Mouth (summer song) by Fall Out Boy.

Champagne for my Real Friends, Real Pain for my Sham Freinds by Fall Out Boy.

(My favourite odd title): I Slept With Someone in Fall Out Boy and all I Got Was This Stupid Song Written About Me by Fall Out Boy.

Get Busy Living, or Get Busy Dying (Do Your Part to Save the Scene and Stop Going to Shows) by Fall Out Boy.

XO by Fall Out Boy.

All of the album: From Under the Cork Tree.

You Know What They do to Guys Like us in Prison by My Chemical Romance.

It's not a Fashion Statement it's a Fucking Deathwish by My Chemical Romance.

I Never Told You What I do for a Living by My Chemical Romance.

All from the album: Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge.

Cheer up Boys (Your Make-up is Running). by The Foo Fighters.

From the album: Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace.

But ofcourse, some old rock bands do good ones too, like:

Territorial Pissings by Nirvana.

From the album: Nevermind.

I used to believe the band Sparks produced some odd song titles, but after reading this thread, I'm starting to believe them to be quite normal..! They do have some that may be admissible here:

"I thought I told you to wait in the car"
"The Ghost of Liberace"
"Now that I own the BBC (What am I supposed to do with this thing?)"
"I can't believe that you would fall for all the crap in this song"
"(Baby baby) Can I invade your country?"

The Bonzo's really are very weird indeed, but since two users have already brought forth the most curious ones, may I interest you in some Neil Innes-tunes? (One of the frontmen)

"Amoeba Boogie"
"Blue Suede Schubert"
"Eine Kleine Middle Klasse Musik"
"Elvis and the disagreeable backing singers"

And, as previously stated, modern bands are quite adapt at making up really curious song titles. My favourite's are ones by Panic at the Disco:

"Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off"
"I write sins, not tragedies"
"The Only Difference Between Martyrdom and Suicide Is Press Coverage"
"Build God, then we'll talk"

Most curious.

Zombie thread!

Several song titles by British grindcore band, Narcosis...

If being a cunt was people, you'd be China
It's not a birthmark, it's a bruise
Ode to a worthless fucking piece of shit
If you knew fuck all at least you would know something
One way ticket to the Cape Of Get Fucked

Some of that could be names of Ships in Iain M Banks' Culture books.

You would think so but every source I've checked on says Britains.

The Jan Garbarek Group's album 'It's Ok To Listen To The Gray Voice' has some of my favourite tracks titles:

White Noise Of Forgetfulness
Mission: To Be Where I Am
It's Ok To Phone The Island That Is A Mirage
I'm The Knife-Thrower's Partner
and It's Ok To Listen To The Gray Voice, itself.
