  4. After having the pleasure of spending 2 hrs in Brian May’s company on Monday night (and again this Saturday!!!): I have to put something in from Queen, although they have short song titles in general:

    1. Queen – These Are the Days of Our Lives

    *Disclaimer: All others have been garnished from the intergoogleweb*

    2. The Hives – Some People Know All Too Well How Bad Liquorice, Or Any Candy For That Matter, Can Taste When Having Laid Out In The Sun Too Long – And I Think I Just Ate Too Much

    3. Fairport Convention – Sir B. McKenzies Daughter’s Lament for the 77th Mounted Lancers Retreat from the Straits of Loch Knombe, in the Year of Our Lord 1727, on the Occasion of the Announcement of Her Marriage to the Laird of Kinleakie
