Top Ten Songs Featuring the Phrase "Na Na Na" in the Lyrics

Quite a lot of people use "na na na" as a lyrical device or a placeholder in their lyrics. I have mixed feelings about it; I think it's ok whenever it's used strategically or in limited amounts, but building a long section around "na na na" gets old after a while. Anyways, feel free to add to this list.

The Top Ten

1 Hey Jude - The Beatles

This is probably the most obvious example I could think of. - Gg2000

The one thing that came to my mind - SirSheep

One of the best songs recorded! - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva

"Na na na na NA NA NA NAAA

2 Hush - Deep Purple

The whole chorus is built around "na na na"; having said that, I still like it because it doesn't overstay its welcome. - Gg2000

3 Charmless Man - Blur

The beginning and the end of the chorus have "na na na". Damon Albarn was using phrases like "la la la" and "na na na" when it had become unfashionable; that's part of their influence from 1960s pop rock. - Gg2000

4 Land of 1000 Dances - Wilson Pickett

7 Shooting Star - Bad Company

The whole outro is a great big "na na na" singalong. Good for breaking out the candles and waving them in the air. - Gg2000

8 All Around the World - Oasis

The whole song has a really long outro, and part of that is built around "na na na". It's Noel Gallagher's attempt to outdo "Hey Jude" at its own game. - Gg2000

9 Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin' - Journey

After two verses and choruses, the song goes into a "na na na" section with a different structure and stays there till the end. - Gg2000

12 Heart of Glass - Blondie

SUCH A GOOD SONG! GO BLONDIE! Thanks Jennifer for getting me 2 listen 2 it!

They sing the chorus on "na na na" at the end, but it's pretty short. I don't think they were trying to make a singalong or anything. - Gg2000
