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.
