It's been really interesting these past few feeks as I seem to be going through phases with different bands...I'll listen to Pearl Jam really intensely for a few days and then it will Led Zeppelin for a few days...Right now I'm listening to a lot of live Phish. tongue.png

I'm feeling too lzay for a late night, but Editors and Hot Hot Heat are playing at the Roseland tonight. Should be a great show.

Here's a very exclusive list: Two different songs by the same artist with the same title. I can think of only two examples:

"Your Gold Teeth"
"Your Gold Teeth II" by Steely Dan

"Think Too Much" ( a )
"Think Too Much" ( b ) by Paul Simon

Close but not quite:

"Depending On You"
"Counting On You" by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

"Kings Road"
"King's Highway" by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

Can anybody come up with any others?

Daniel Powter? I didn't look it up right now, but I did Google it when I first heard it on an NFL commercial a few weeks ago, so in a way I cheated.

I'm not quite sure either of your examples REALLY work, since the I and II or (a) and (cool.gif would differentiate them, wouldn't they? I'm not really familair with either set of songs, so I'm not certain.

Another Brick in the Wall Parts I, II and II are all very different songs - but I count the part # as a differentiating component of the title. I can think of several other examples of bands with different songs that have a title with a sequential number so that they can be uniquely identified. But I can't think of a one where the songs were on different albums and the album title needs to be referenced to identify which particular song of the same title you are referring to.

You have a point with the Steely Dan songs, since the "II" is part of the title as printed on the album, though the two songs are completely separate compositions from different albums, and the second one is not part II of the first one, just kind of a sequel of sorts. (Both choruses do contain the lyrics "throw out your gold teeth" and "see how they roll" - Yeah, they're known for inscrutable lyrics!)

I think the Paul Simon songs are both just titled "Think Too Much" and the (a) and ( b ) are merely used by sources to distinguish them. Kind of like blues singers Sonny Boy Williamson I and Sonny Boy Williamson II. (Bluesman Rice Miller stole the first Sonny Boy's name and ended up becoming even more famous than the real Sonny Boy).

And here's another pair for the close but not quite list:

"Bron-Yr-Aur"
"Bron-Y-Aur Stomp" by Led Zeppelin

(Bron-Yr-Aur was the name of a Welsh cottage where the band recorded some of their acoustic songs in 1970. Nobody knows what happened to the second "r" in "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp".)

They probably ground it up and snorted it.

I can now add The New York Times Magazine to my list of magazines in which I've had letters printed, along with Rolling Stone and Sports Illustrated! Here's the link. It's about rock music and even contains quoted lyrics! w00t.png

Whoa Joe! Thats cool!

I actually like the new REM song on the radio, not usually a huge fan of Michael Stipes....but I think a Collective Soul/REM concert would be great! Onstage together! Like a father/son concert!

Also I think I heard a new B52 song on KINK....it was DEFINITELY the B52s.....

Valentine's Day is approaching shocked.png

Do the Kaiser Chiefs speak for you?:

"Let it never be said
That romance is dead,
'Cause there's so little else
Occupying my head"

If so, here are two of the best songs to play or quote for your prospective or established Valentine:

"In My World" by the Moody Blues

"Reasons" by UB40

In order to avoid being called a sap, I'm just providing links to the lyrics. You can thank me later. flowers.png wub.gif

And here's some lyrics from a great choice for runners, "You and Me" by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers:

"Take a look
at what I've got
I can't promise
You a lot
But you and me
And the road ahead

Wherever that wind might blow
Wherever that river rolls
You know I will go with you"

~~~

These two songs are not recommended: no.gif tongue.png

"Every Breath You Take" by The Police (The stalker's anthem)

"So Many Women, So Little Time" by The Robert Cray Band (Wilt Chamberlain's anthem)

Good songs though, just not appropriate for wooing purposes!
