Wait Till the Sun Shines, Nellie - Buddy Holly
Wow Tom. You've sure got a lot of favorites.
Tom - Stingker
Anna - The Beatles
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 . . .
"Sweaty Betty" by the Macc Ladds
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).
Hot Smoke And Sasafrass
I Saw Linda Yesterday - Dickey Lee
Here is something differnt.
First Hank Williams. Then Waylon Jennings singing about Hank, then Hank Williams JR singing about Waylon.
Kaw-Liga - Hank Williams
Hank Williams - Eyes Of Waylon
Waylon - Amanda
The Little Tin Soldier - Donovan
Wow!! - Sharkblues,
Hank Williams's 'Kwa Liga' reminded me of this:
"Walk Away Renee" by The Left Banke, who I am going to see tomorrow night at Joe's Pub in NYC! We named our older daughter after that song.
Peggy Sue - Buddy Holly, Johnny B Goode - Chuck Berry and Hey Jude - The Beatles
OH Yeah! - Thanks DrumBob!
Yikes! - I forgot this one. - I don't want to ever forget it again!

Jesus is Just Alright - The Doobie Brothers
Umm . . . 867-5309/Jenny.
Tommy Tutone. Come on! The most famous phone number in the country, at least in 1982.
Don't Mess With Bill - The Marvelettes
The phone number I remember, that must have been the most famous for a long time, was Beechwood 4-5789, - also by The Marvelettes.
