Friday random ten: Parenthetically speaking, part 12

Twelve! Twelve lists of song names with parentheses in them! Ah ha ha!

1. Strangest Party (These Are The Times) – INXS
2. Sweet Dreams (Of You) – Patsy Cline
3. (Take A) Beetle To The Badlands – The Slip
4. Take Me (I’m Yours) – Bob deGrande
5. Tell Me (That Our Love’s Still Strong) – Southside Johnny and The Jukes
6. Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Again) – Sly And The Family Stone
7. That Lucky Old Sun (Just Rolls Around Heaven All Day) – Ray Charles
8. There’s A Moon In The Sky (Called The Moon) – The B-52’s
9. The Things (That) I Used To Do – Stevie Ray Vaughan
10. This Is The Picture (Excellent Birds) – Peter Gabriel

I believe that SRV song is the first one we’ve seen where the parenthetical is in the middle of the song name. I feel like an argument about proper grammar must have been involved. Also, once you come up with “Excellent Birds” as a title, I don’t know why you’d want to add on to it. But if Peter Gabriel hadn’t, his song wouldn’t have made this list.
