Looking For Quacks In The Pavement

If Skulls Were All

So, it started with a tweet from Jeph Jacques, webcomic demigod.

JephJacquesLoveSkullsAnd I thought to myself, “Self? How many song titles could we mangle like this?” I opened up MediaMonkey and, after some arguing with its search settings so that only titles appeared in the rankings, I found myself looking at a list of 182 songs which include “love” in the title. Now, that’s not precisely what Mr. Jacques instructed; he’s talking about lyrics. I don’t have a lyrics library to search, however, so we’ll have to make do with song titles. And because it’s been that kind of week and I need something to amuse myself during lunch, here’s a list of the highlights out of that search result, skulls-ified for your pleasure.

Note that I’m leaving out duplicates, remixes, and entries where the word replacement just doesn’t scan very well at all. (Which is to say: It didn’t make me laugh, so I chucked it.)

    Oh, that’s a hoot. (I particularly like Duran Duran’s “I Don’t Want Your Skulls.”)
