Be-Bop-A-Lula


"I come in dead drunk and stumble over the bed. And me and Don Graves were looking at this bloody book; it was called 'Little Lulu'. And I said, "Hell, man, it's 'Be-Bop-a-Lulu.' And he said, 'Yeah, man, swinging.' And we wrote this song" - Gene Vincent, 1970

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida


A commonly related story says that the song's title was originally "In the Garden of Eden", but at one point in the course of rehearsing and recording, singer Doug Ingle got drunk and slurred the words, creating the mondegreen that stuck as the title

Hmm, being drunk sometimes has its advantages. Anyway, slurred words or not, it gave us one of the best titled rock songs in history. Got any other title which is *this* cool apart from Master of Puppets?
