so, every now and then when i am listening to the radio, a song by 'Dodgy' will be played, and that reminds me of possibly one of the best album titles i've ever heard..........

'Free Peace Sweet'

*genius*.

so what are your favourite album or song titles?

I always think that death metal bands come up with the best song titles...

Bal Sagoth - 'And Lo, When the Imperium Marches Against Gul-Kothoth, Then Dark Sorceries Shall Enshroud the Citadel of the Obsidian Crown'


The Meads of Asphodel  'Behold The Kindred Battle Carcasses Strewn Across The Bloodied Dunes Of Gilgamesh Mute In The Frenzied Clamour Of Deaths Rolling Tongue And Ravenous Bursting Steel'

 Shocked

'Lobster In Cleavage Probe' and 'Gigantic Lands Crabs in Earth Takeover Bid' - Hatfield and the North
'If I Could Do It All Over Again, I'd Do It All Over You' - Caravan
'Eleanor's Cake (Which Ate Her)' - Kevin Ayers

My, the titles courtesy of those Canterbury bands can be a lot of fun.
