30 Sloop John B - The Beach Boys

I used to think it was called "I Wanna Go Home". Having said that, I am kinda justified in a way because it's a traditional folk song from the Bahamas, and some people have recorded it as "I Wanna Go Home". It has quite a few different names. - Gg2000

31 The Weight - The Band

"Take A Load Off Fanny". I never really understood why they called it "The Weight". It made no sense. - Gg2000

"The Weight" is a load, which has been dragging down the weary soul singing the song. It's an appropriate title. - Billyv

32 Song 2 - Blur

Commonly referred to as "Woo-Hoo! ". Anybody wanna guess why? - Gg2000

33 Brain Damage - Pink Floyd

When I was a kid, it took me a long time to find out that there is no Pink Floyd song called "The Dark Side of the Moon". - Gg2000

34 Chop Suey! - System of a Down

Often called "Self Righteous Suicide". It doesn't help that the original title was simply the word "Suicide". - Gg2000

35 Joy to the World - Three Dog Night

Commonly called "Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog". I still do this sometimes as a way of distinguishing it from the Christmas carol. - Gg2000

36 Tom Trauberts Blues - Tom Waits

Commonly referred to as "Waltzing Matilda". The reason why is that the chorus for the song is a quote from an Australian folk song called "Waltzing Matilda"; it's important to distinguish the two songs as separate identities. - Gg2000

37 Suedehead - Morrissey

Commonly referred to as "I'm So Sorry" (the main lyric in the chorus). - Gg2000

38 I'll Stick Around - Foo Fighters

Commonly called "I Don't Owe You Anything". - Gg2000

39 Touch of Grey - Grateful Dead

Many people think the name is "I Will Get By" because of the chorus. - Gg2000
