I’ve had The Turtles’ “Happy Together” bouncing around my head for a couple of days, then suddenly The Jam song with the same title popped in too. It got me thinking, “Blimey, they’re both pretty good.” Then I began to wonder which song title has cumulatively produced the strongest collection of compositions.
Here’s a few I could think of.
ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS [The Jam, David Bowie]; ALL I WANT IS YOU [Roxy Music, U2]; BEST OF MY LOVE [The Eagles, The Emotions]; CHANGES [David Bowie, Black Sabbath]; COME TOGETHER [The Beatles, Blur]; CRY ME A RIVER [Julie London, Justin Timberlake]; DANCING IN THE MOONLIGHT [Thin Lizzy, Toploader]; DO IT AGAIN [The Beach Boys, Steely Dan]; DRIVE [The Cars, R.E.M.]; FIRE [The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Jim Hendrix, The Pointer Sisters, Kasabian]; HAPPY TOGETHER [The Turtles, The Jam]; HEAVEN [Talking Heads, Psychedelic Furs, Squeeze]; JUMP [The Pointer Sisters, Van Halen]; LET’S DANCE [Chris Montez, David Bowie, Chris Rea]; THE LOOK OF LOVE [Dusty Springfield, A.B.C.]; LUCKY MAN [Emerson, Lake & Palmer, The Verve]; ONE [Harry Nilsson, Metallica, U2]; THE POWER OF LOVE [Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Huey Lewis & The News, Jennifer Rush]; SHOUT [Isley Brothers, Tears For Fears]; STAY [Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs, David Bowie, Bernard Butler, Shakespeare’s Sister, Rihanna]; WHO’S THAT GIRL? [Eurythmics, Madonna].
I think my money’s on “Heaven”.
