The best single ever released by anyone, ever. Anyone who disagrees is a fool, a liar, or both.
I actually prefer the Hawkwind version that Lemmy did before leaving to form the mighty Head. Just saying.

named after the Australian band.
The Song Remains The Same
Is the name of a different album by the same band:
Starless and Bible Black - King Crimson
where XTC name their albums after a lyric on the previous album.
In part 2 of "Ommadawn", Mike Oldfield mentions the name of his previous album, "Hergest Ridge".
"So if you you feel a little glum
To Hergest Ridge you should come..."

Desmond Ruction was the singer. Can't remember the date.
for the continental folk dance chapel of the Afterword,
which would be me.
seeing them in November, after more years than I care to think.
Will this count as a mingle? I will be the big bloke in the kilt, permanently on the dancefloor.
If it's a mingle, there has to be cake.
Alas my knees are bad and strutting my stuff is a thing of the past, well I may just do if the mood takes me.
Holmfirth-agogo it is. See you there Chesh.
I wasn't asking.
I once got chucked out of the Holmfirth folk festival along with lots of morris men for being too rowdy (and presumably very annoying to everyone else. We were very young/stupid/irritating/drunk.)
No band that I really like has released a song that is also the name of the band. True story.
&, quite frankly, Fire? And Kool & The Gang? Black Celebration indeed.
But I have never bought their records. I'm not going to, either. Actually, Cherish is a dreadful record and Celebration reminds me too much of grim wedding discos and work dos.
Top funking from 1973 - as used in Pulp Fiction's opening credits...
is also recommended for anyone DJing a wedding reception. Creates laughter and offence in roughly equal measure.
The very early albums of K&TG and EW&F are much more interesting than their later successful pop incarnations might indicate. I'd guess early EW&F in particular would appeal to a few jazz fusioneers in these here parts.
by Deep Forest. From the album "Deep Forest".
Said track is possibly the most danceable piece of music i have ever heard - and this comes from someone who cannot dance to save his life.
Jimmy Webb - P. F. Sloan
Pulp - Bob Lind (The Only Way Is Down)
Tame Impala - Led Zeppelin
When Smokie sings - a tribute to the Living Next Door to Alice hit makers.
From the album, er, Kool Moe Dee.

"Pet Shop Boys" - the early track with Bobby O.
We Are The Cheeky Girls by The Cheeky Girls.
We're The Monkees
make mention of the leader of The Jam in Summer Nights
*thanks to DLT ** (Dave Lettuce & Tomato) for the mangling of the name
** are we still allowed to mention his name in public (guilty, until proven innocent?)
covered Dr Feelgood
The Blues Band
and this.... kind of
by Todd Rundgren's Utopia (sometimes called Utopia Theme depending on which pressing you have). That almost counts.
What about '60s psych-folk hero Skip Spence's song 'All Come To Meet Her'? - wasn't that covered in the '70s by the Japanese composer of electronic mu [you're banned - Ed]
did the song "Daddy Cool"; and that same song, sung by a different band, replaced Daddy Cool's "Eagle Rock" at No. 1.
Even better than the real thing by U2
- The aforementioned Daddy Cool, original song by the Diamonds
- Death Cab For Cutie (after a song by the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band)
- Powderfinger (Australian band named after song by Neil Young)
- Zabadak (Japanese band named after the song by Dave Dee, Dozy etc.)
Tribute bands like The Musical Box don't count, I shouldn't think.
There are probably a lot more bands named after songs, than songs named after artists.
It was Richie's gran's favorite song.
named themselves after their own song and album of that name, which they had released earlier when the band was still known as Flowers. They had to rename the band because someone else had a band called Flowers. Icehouse is a much better name for a band, IMO.
or is that just the name of a band?
