Do you have a contribution for Quirky Country Music Song Titles Day?

Asked by 6rant6 (13690points) March 27th, 2012

I am not making this up.

Today is Quirky Country Music Song Titles Day.

Do you have a song title (whether or not there’s music to go with it) that you think deserves recognition and abuse?

Not sure if this is a title or a line from a song, “The only good years we had were the tires on our car.”

This is the hardest question ever since I don’t listen to or know anything about country music.

Lee Ann Womack’s I’ll Think of a Reason Later based on the idea that she finds out her former boyfriend is engaged, when she sees a picture of the couple in the society pages.

It may be my family’s redneck nature rubbin’ off, bringin’ out unlady-like behavior. It sure ain’t Christian to judge a stranger, but I don’t like her.

She may be an angel who spends all winter bringin’ the homeless blankets and dinner, a regular Nobel Peace prize winner, but I really hate her, I’ll think of a reason later.

“If I said you had a beautiful body would you hold it against me?”

This is really one of the reasons Country Music is NOT my favorite genre…although I happen to REALLY like, “You can kiss…a-kiss this! And I don’t mean on my rosy red lips!”

Nutbush City Limits.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@john65pennington That’s a great Seger tune. His version live is amazing.

john65pennington's avatar

Adirondack, I agree. Tina Turner also had a great version.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@john65pennington Thanks. I’ll look for that.

“I’d Rather Have A Bottle In Front Of Me Than A Frontal Lobotomy”

fundevogel's avatar

That’s a Tom Waits quote. It’s from the best interview in the world.

Hain_roo's avatar

Nope, it’s been around a lot longer than he has. It’s a Dorothy Parker quote he borrowed as has WC Fields. I remember that episode of Fernwood tonight! Remember Dr. Demento?

fundevogel's avatar

@Hain_roo The first link is an article on the quote’s various attributions. Tom’s is the earliest that can be confirmed (1977). The Demento song was written in 1980.

“The line is sometimes credited to writer Dorothy Parker (1893–1967), but there is no evidence at all to support this. Other authorship claims—also without evidence—have been given for actor W. C. Fields and radio wit Fred Allen.”

If you’re interested I can point you to some amazing pseudo-epigraphical Oscar Wilde quotes.

I guess we’ll never know who said it first.

janbb's avatar

I cannot tell a lie; it was I. Waits, Dorothy Parker and W.C.Fields all stole it from me.

Brian1946's avatar

I first read it in a restroom at Stanley Park in Vancouver, BC. That was in September, 1979, so it was probably Dotty Parker.

Pissin’ in the Wind – Jerry Jeff Walker.

rojo's avatar

Ok, I finally found “the one”. I had heard this on a public access station some time ago and finally tracked it down.
It is called : She Puts the T & A in Texas. Give it a listen

Earthgirl's avatar

rojo Those titles are so great! It’s funny but a few days ago I kept hearing Neil Young singing the words written here:
You’re all just pissin’
In the wind
You don’t know it but you are.

And there ain’t nothin’
Like a friend
Who can tell you
You’re just pissin’
In the wind.
from On the Beach, Ambulance Blues.

It just made me laugh. I thought only Neil Young could use the phrase Pissin’ In the Wind and make it work! apparently I was wrong

rojo's avatar

Ya, but you can’t beat:
She put’s the T and A in Texas
She’ll put an E. X. in front of your wife
She’s got a curvy S and that’s bound to mess
With your body and your mind
She spells trouble in a baby T halter top
She’s the sexiest speller you’ve met
She puts the T and A in Texas
So you can have fun with your alphabet

How can you write better than that?

6rant6's avatar

@rojo How did they not get that after she put the T & A in, all that you needed was SEX?

rojo's avatar

@6rant6 Ha! I have no idea!
Along those lines…...
Back in the early 70’s I attended Texas A&M University. At the time the university had only been accepting women students for less than 10 years and was still a decidedly male oriented campus.

Someone put out a maroon and white bumper sticker saying

“Texas A&M, Ain’t it Great!”

which some wits with scissors quickly changed to:

“Sex aT A&M, Ain’t it Great!”

it wasn’t long before someone with a much greater sense of realism re-worked it to read:

“Sex aT A&M, Great it Ain’t!”

Isn’t the english language wonderful?

Hain_roo's avatar

^ Which reminds me of way back when they used the slogan “Make It in Massachusetts” and then we had this huge caterpillar infestation. Suddenly “Gypsy Moths Are Making It In Massachusetts” bumper stickers popped up everywhere :)
