Best song/track with...a title in the title

We all love to talk about music.

Best song/track with...a title in the title

Post by Paul H @ Mon Feb 08, 2016 9:48 am

Best song with a title, eg Mr, Mrs, Professor, Doctor, Lord etc., in the title.

If they're enough entries to warrant a poll, I'll start a poll on Thursday :)

Dr Beat by Miami Sound Machine

(Not a medical doctor)

Mister Sandman by The Chordettes


Also, by no means best but possibly a contender for worst but I present hear for you, Mr Saxobeat by Alexandra Stan which I hate more than words can describe.

Not a poll entry, since a really terrible song, but Doctor Doctor by the Thompson Twins sprang to mind

I never have been able to do this Youtube embedding thing. No idea what I'm doing wrong.

However, my song out-ranks yours and can't be defeated on a technicality. So BTFD!

You just remove the s at the end of http, and change the youtu.be to youtube if that's what it gives you in the url

thusly

That's Billy Paul, not Marvin Gaye. Mortifying for the youtubist who clearly thinks they all look the same and did a nice Marvin-montage to accompany it.

Comparisons between different types of music make an apples'n'oranges issue.
