>An album of covers of popular songs with misspelled or grammatically
>incorrect titles - "Cum On Feel the Noize", "The Kids Are Alright",
>"Who Do You Love", that kind of thing. The album's title would be
Heh. That's the kind of thing I'd buy just for the fun of it and cleverness of the idea.
And now you've got me thinking. How about...
"Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box", Radiohead
"Nothing Compares 2 U", Sinead O'Connor (and anything else written by Prince at the height of his campaign to conserve prepositions and pronouns, like "U Got The Look" and "I Would Die 4 U")
"Rock and Roll All Nite", Kiss
"White Limozeen", Dolly Parton
"Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)", Sly & The Family Stone
"Point of Know Return", Kansas
"Pop Muzik", M
"Must of Got Lost", J. Geils Band
"Used Ta Be My Girl", O'Jays
"Mama Weer All Crazee Now", Slade
... and, well, I could keep going for quite a while. It's a good thing I'm not at home and can't peruse my MP3 collection, or this list might be dozens of songs long -- we're talking an entire subgenre for Kate here, really, not just one album. <grin>
I'd include "The Sheik Yerbouti Tango" by Frank Zappa except it doesn't fit the requirement of a "popular" song (given that it's an album track that never got released to the best of my knowledge). Likewise "U Stink But I ♥ U" by Billy and the Boingers because of outright obscurity (and the reasonable assumption most people might make that it's entirely fictional).
But think I've probably already run the gag deep enough into the ground that wind drift has already covered it over.
My race is pacifist and does not believe in war. We kill only out of personal spite.
