Top Ten Best Songs Which Have a Double-Negative Title


The Top Ten

1 Ain't No Sunshine - Bill Withers
2 Don't Ask Me No Questions - Lynyrd Skynyrd

I won't ask you no questions, and I will not not take no for an answer (think I just confused my own self:).

You can not ask no questions that the reply ain't "no" to. :). - Britgirl

3 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones
4 Ain't No Woman (Like the One I've Got) - The Four Tops

She got one big tooth, one good eye, and fangs tattooed upon each thigh. She's a keeper! :).

5 Ain't No Good Life - Lynyrd Skynyrd
6 Ain't No Mountain High Enough - Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

Maybe. But it'll still have t'wait 'til after this here ball game. Damn Yankees! :).

7 You Haven't Done Nothin' - Stevie Wonder

Yes I Have. I Voted. - AlphaQ

8 Ain't No Stopping Us Now - McFadden & Whitehead
9 She Don't Gimme No Lovin' - King King

Ha! I know...I heard this, loved it and then I found out they're from Scotland...and now I say I love them through gritted teeth :). - Britgirl

Recommended Song :) Scottish Blues-Rock band. They're really rather good! - Britgirl

Not bad at all. Could give you a list of folks they borrowed from, but that's okay, that's how it's done - ain't nothing new under the sun;). Music is like cooking. The ingredients have always been around, but the recipes are personal.
But Scots?!
How gauche:)).

10 Don't Come Around Here No More - Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

Should have just called this list: Songs With Bad-Grammar Titles. - Britgirl

Items 13 and 15 are not double negatives, as the negatives do not cancel each other to produce an opposite (positive) meaning. Capice? F'rinstance, if you dropped the first negative in this item, it would literally mean "Come around here no more." If you dropped the second, it would say "Don't come around here more." While not necessarily identical (owing to one's interpretation of "no more"), certainly not opposites.

The Contenders

11 Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing - Marvin Gaye

And for those Bud Bundy-types who are less than discriminating, there's vinyl.

12 I Don't Trust Nobody - George Thorogood
13 Can't Lose What You Ain't Never Had - Magic Slim
14 Ain't No Telling - The Jimi Hendrix Experience
15 Don't Cry No Tears - Neil Young
