What's in a name? Funky funky music, it turns out. Last night on the Bang & Jangle Radio Hour, I choose tunes on the basis of their intriguing titles. In order of appearance:

Bessie Smith - Gimme a Pigfoot and a Bottle of Beer
Hoosier Hot Shots - I Like Bananas Because They Have No Bones
Nugrape Twins - I Got Your Ice Cold Nugrape
Raymond Scott - Yesterday's Ice Cubes
Larry "Wild Man" Fischer - Monkeys vs. Donkeys
Roky Erickson & the Aliens - It's a Cold Night for Alligators
Ween - Hey There Fancypants
Joe Meek - Love Dance of the Saroos
Kaada - Broken Horse Restaurant
Tin Hat Trio - Same Shirt, Different Day
Frank Pahl & Klimperei - Cat's Tongues with Cream
The Books - An Owl with Knees

Honorable mention goes to When Fishsticks Turn to Mermaids, My Pink Half of the Drainpipe, God's Away on Business, What Did the Buzzard Say to the Crow, and I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive. Maybe next time...
