Shang-a-Lang, Shotgun Shuffle and Short Fat Fannie

Today, the 27th, is “Quirky Country Music Song Titles Day.”


Based on some of the songs I’ve heard, this ought to be a month-long celebration instead of one day only!


I started thinking about some of the funny country music titles and then those thoughts turned to all kinds of songs, not just country. These aren’t necessarily humorous songs but just titles that I find amusing. Also, there are some hilarious songs out there, but the names aren’t necessarily funny, so I didn’t include them.

Do you remember any of these? What others do you recall?

Not being a fan of country music, only a few of these titles were known to me... but the others are really funny!

Hard to believe that some of those were songs. I did know a few of them, even though I don't listen to country music.
