Favo(u)rite Album Titles

Re: Favo(u)rite Album Titles

Some artists title their albums after particular songs contained therein. More creative ones title their albums after a LYRIC from one of the songs (e.g., MY AIM IS TRUE). Then there are albums titled after a lyric from someone ELSE's song, usually an iconic one. Let's play Guess The Source!


(Caveat: That last one may be a leap on my part, but it would be very difficult to convince me otherwise. It was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the title.)

Re: Favo(u)rite Album Titles

Not a favorite title, but I've got one to remember for you:

As a mathematician, I like Math rock, right ... ? So I had to get the latest album from Marnie Stern. Her 2nd album was released just earlier this week and the opener 'Prime' is as obscure as the rest of the album. It's damn hard work to process that album, but quite fun.

Anyway, to the point now ... the album is called:

"This Is It And I Am It And You Are It And So Is That And He Is It And She Is It And It Is It And That Is That"

Re: Favo(u)rite Album Titles

Some other cute albums, that could easily be nominated for the Nobel prize for the most original title:

"Q: Are We Not Men? A: We are Devo!" by Devo

"()" from Sigur Rós

"The Least We Can Do Is Wave To Each Other" by Van Der Graaf Generator

Re: Favo(u)rite Album Titles

Fiona Apple -WHEN THE PAWN hits the conflicts he thinks like a king / What he knows throws the blows when he goes to the fight / And he'll win the whole thing before he enters the ring / There's no body to batter when your mind is your might / So when you go solo, you hold your own hand / And remember that depth is the greatest of heights / And if you know where you stand, then you know where to land / And if you fall it won't matter, cuz you'll know that you're right

Wouldn't a mathematician like that weird distonal stuff based on the intersection of mathematical functions that nobody actually enjoys but people making to impress people with a formal classical education?

Another one that came to me: The Who Sell Out.

Yes, good very well be. My problem is probably that I did study math, but am not doing anything with it anymore. So there is this strong longing for those good old days, where the world was still OK and structured with axiomas and 'impressive' formulas.

Re: Favo(u)rite Album Titles

good very well be -> could very well be.
