    Anybody who likes music could probably rattle off some of their favorite song lyrics. In fact, the business of quoting songs is very popular, as evidenced by the signatures of more than a few Toon Zone posters. And why not? There are lots of nuggets of wisdom, comedy, and insight in the best song lyrics.

    Ocassionally, though, you don't even need to go as in-depth as the lyrics to get something cool. There are some songs whose titles alone are really neat. They're the kind of songs where just hearing the title, just reading it off of the back of a CD, makes you want to sit down and listen to it. So what are some of your favorite song titles?

    Some of my choices:

    -"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" by Elvis Costello
    -"It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Want To Rock & Roll)" by AC/DC
    -"Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town" by Pearl Jam
    -"The Day I Tried To Live" by Soundgarden
    -"Trippin' On A Hole In a Paper Heart" by Stone Temple Pilots
    -"They Call Me Guitar Hurricane" by Eddie Jones
    -"Love's In Need Of Love Today" by Stevie Wonder

    But enough of my prattling. How about you guys?

    "The Postive Aspects of Negative Thinking" by Bad Religion
    "Tribute To The Mammal" by Buck Wild

    "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Salvation" by Death by Stereo
    "New York's Alright If You Like Saxophones" by Fear
    "Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell" by The Stooges
    "Flushed From The Bathroom of Your Heart" by Johnny Cash

    That's one of my favorites too. Had it in the signature for a while.

    Which reminds me (and I cannot believe I forgot this one): "Everybody's Got Something To Hide (Except For Me & My Monkey)", also by the Beatles.

    Can't make a list of awesome song titles without that one.
