Coincidental SongFight Songs

Post by mkilly » Fri Jan 21, 2005 1:33 am

I was listening to my mp3 collection on shuffle and this track came on:
<a href="http://www.glitterandtwang.org/songfight/Eddie Bo - From This Day On.mp3">Eddie Bo - From This Day On</a>

It was in DJ Shadow/Cut Chemist's Brainfreeze, basically a megamix made up of old 45s they'd collected over the years. It's pretty good! Better than the average SongFight track. It has great trumpets, good staccato guitar, a kickin' bassline, and the vocals are classic. I would vote for it.

What other songs do you guys have that are false SongFight cognates, excepting the obvious Beatles ones?
One, two, cha-cha-cha.

I have an album by the Left Rights if that counts.
Sesame Street Gangsters have a song called Adam And Steve.
I'm pretty sure Atmosphere have a song with a SongFight title but I can't remember which.

Hah, me too. Man that album is terrible.

Also I have about a thousand tapes, and I remember one of them being 'Level Best', if that counts.

Doug Cheatwood has a song called "Lightning Rod" that would work very easily for "Wrath of God". The chorus is something like:
"I'm a lightning rod
For the wrath of god
I'm a lightning rod
(come on come on you're a lightning rod!)"

And I guess that's all I can think of.

I guess the Beatles ones are disqualified :)
Skinny Puppy has a "Chainsaw." As, it looks like, do the Ramones.
There's also a famous "Lucky Man" by ELP.

We all need a little brain salad surgery now and again. I saw that live with an orchestra behind them. Lots of dressing was applied.

Drowning Pool has a song called "Step Up." It was the first single after Dave Williams died, and I wouldn't recommend it.

On the other hand, rapper Lyrics Born has a "Bad Dreams" that I would recommend.

This isn't so much a coincidental songfight song, as much as it is a coincidental songfight occurance.

I hammered out acoustic guitar and vocals for 5 songs that will be on the Half Racks CD last night, and then I burned all 5 of those songs to a CD-RW.

The time on the CD? 15:16

I shit you not. I thought that was ridiculously funny.

ROCK!

Bonnie McKee has a song called "Trouble" but in the chorus background vocals they fully say "Troublemaker".

The first song I ever wrote, in the fourth grade, was called "The Martians Are Going to Eat Us." I happened to mention that on the discussion boards, and the next week, it turned up as one of the songfight titles.

Of course, I couldn't enter my version, since it was written before the titles were announced...

The Replacements have an album titled Let It Be. It is better than the Beatles's.

Joe Jackson did a snappy number called "Cancer ". It's on the Night And Day album.

What a coincidence. My daughter's first song was also called "The Martians Are Going to Eat Us".

My first song was "Cowboys in the City". My first song with lyrics was "Bean Parfait". At one time I was going to organize a "first songs" sidefight, where everyone could submit the first song they'd ever written. Never got around to it.
