Friday random ten: Parenthetically speaking, part 1

Time for another set of theme lists. You know how some songs have an optional title, or extra words to the title, set apart in parentheses? Let’s go through the library and see what songs like that I have.

1. A. Enlightenment B. Endarkenment (Hint: There is no C) – Ray Wylie Hubbard
2. Art Isn’t Real (City of Sin) – Deer Tick
3. Baby Come Back To Me (The Morse Code of Love) – The Manhattan Transfer
4. Baby Got Back (In the Style of Glee) – Jonathan Coulton
5. The Beat(en) Generation – The The
6. Blue Moon Revisited (Song for Elvis) – Cowboy Junkies
7. Boogie Palace (In The Heights) – Ezra Charles and The Works
8. Brandy (You’re A Fine Girl) – Looking Glass
9. Breath Of Heaven (Mary’s Song) – Amy Grant
10. Bury Me Far (From My Uniform) – Joe Pug

That Ray Wylie Hubbard song is one of my favorite titles overall. I mean, there must be a thing as “endarkenment”, right? The Coulton song is an example of the third use of parentheticals, the Extra Information use of them. I’m just getting started here, so settle in, there are a lot more of these to come.

    Simon and Garfunkel had at least one with parentheses, but you haven’t gotten there in the alphabet yet.
