This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Songs with Brackets in the title February 22, 2020

Posted by irishelectionliterature in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to..., Uncategorized.

My older brother brought home “Rolled Gold- The Best of The Rolling Stones” around 1980. It’s a fantastic album , I remember asking why they need brackets in the title of “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”. Nobody knew the answer. It’s amazing the number of great tunes that have, for no particular reason brackets in the title. A small selection of them…..

Genius. Genius idea 🙂

A personal favourite random use of brackets is ‘Now That We Found Love (What Are We Going To Do With It)’ The Brand New Heavies

I’ve a lot of Song Title (Remastered) in my urghhh.. grim term… ‘music library’. But for me Half Man Half Biscuit had some of the best examples of these…Yipps (My Baby Got the) and Man of Constant Sorrow (With a Garage in Constant Use). Or what of Bogus Official (*public information tune), Evening of Swing (Has Been Cancelled) and I Hate Nerys Hughes (from the Heart). Plenty more where they came from 😉
