Forgotten Hits: What's The Name Of That Song???

Forgotten Hits: SWEET 16 - What's The Name Of That Song???: Today, as part of our latest SWEET 16 feature, Forgotten Hits salutes those GREAT songs that confused the heck out of the record buying public because the TITLE of the song never appears anywhere in the lyrics!!!

Well, "The 59th Street Bridge Song" does have "(Feelin' Groovy)" as part of the title.

I know a lot of people who call "Chapel of Love" by "Goin' to the Chapel" instead. In fact, that always drives me bonkers.

Now stay off my lawn!

Jeff, you're too easily driven bonkers.

I'm with Jeff--the song clearly says "Feelin' Groovy" and it's in the title! The others are pretty interesting though.

That's a pretty good list of songs...

Anyway, there are at least 3 songs on "Parsley, Sage..." in which the title does not appear in the lyrics (unless my increasingly shaky memory has failed me again: ""A Simple Desultory Philippic (Or How I Was Robert McNamara'd into Submission)" (although McNamara's name is mentioned; "For Emily, Whenever I May Find Her;" and "A Poem on the Underground Wall."

I think all three are better (or at least more interesting) than "Feelin' Grrovy."
