    So many on here now, it's hard to tell what's already here. Maybe I missed something while I was down under "Waltzing Matilda." Did anyone mention Mr.Hot-Buttered Soul (Isaac Hayes) and "Shaft"? How about Flatt & Scruggs with "Ballad of Jed Clampett"? Or the ever popular instrumental "Axle Foley." Get out your coon skin cap for "The Ballad of Davey Crockett." Oops. This is thread does go on . . . Alley Oop, Osama! Your Mama!, Ahab the Arab, Cow Patty, Judy Loves The Blues, Fifty Ways To Kill Bin Laden, Barbara Allen . . .

    Great lists. Funny how in the early days of rock-n-roll, how many simple love songs were just named for the girl of someone's dreams, preferably with a "Lou" or "Sue" on the end of it. Maybe I should write a Grinch love song to Cindy Lou Hoo.

    Anyway, here's my list - I don't think these have been mentioned, but by now hard to tell:

    • Amy, Amy, Amy; Me & Mr. Jones - Amy Winehouse
    • Ziggy Stardust, Joe the Lion, John, I'm Only Dancing - Bowie
    • Come Back Jonee - Devo
    • Stuart - Dead Milkmen
    • Jacqueline - Franz Ferdinand
    • Judy is a Punk, Suzy is a Headbanger - Ramones
    • Venus - Television
    • Valerie - the Zutons (covered by Amy Winehouse)
    • Johnny Soul'd Out - the Bus Boys
    • Candy-o - the Cars
    • Janie Jones, Rudie Can't Fail, Ivan meets GI Joe - the Clash
    • Rio - Duran Duran
    • Hang On Sloopy - Rick Derringer
    • Flatfoot Sam - Oscar Wills, (also Brian Setzer cover)
    • Who Slapped John? - Gene Vincent
    • Marie Marie - the Blasters
    • Maybellene - Chuck Berry
    • Jeanie, Jeanie, Jeanie - Eddie Cochran
    • Johnny Got a Boom Boom - Imelda May
    • Doreen, Sweet Lorraine - Devil Doll (Also St. Christopher & St. Patrick)
    • Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues, Maggie's Farm, Song to Woodie, Visions of Johanna (Dylan)
    • Bernard Jenkins, Lay Down Sally - Eric Clapton
    • Nadia, Beck's Bolero - Jeff Beck

    Between Beck's Bolero and Amy, Amy, Amy, perhaps we can start another thread of artists using their own name in the title of a song... (or, in the lyrics - i.e. Chaka Khan, I Feel for You).

    The phone number I remember, that must have been the most famous for a long time, was Beechwood 4-5789, - also by The Marvelettes.
