Name that funny country-song title!

Georgejones_lY’all, this morning I stumbled across this AOL Music quiz that tests your knowledge of country music’s more, um, creative song titles. They give you three choices, you name which one is real. Even if you’re not a fan of the genre, it’s fun to see how good you are at identifying what I affectionately term "country clever." I thought I had a knack for it — having once penned lyrics for a song I titled "One Night Stand (Take Two)"* — but I only scored a 13 out of 20. Take the quiz, then tell us what songs you’d have put on it had it been more than 20 questions. I’m thinking the George Jones (pictured) and Garth Brooks ditty "Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In)". David Frizzell’s "I’m Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home." Gary Stewart’s "She’s Actin’ Single (I’m Drinkin’ Doubles)." And maybe Jo Dee Messina’s "My Give a Damn’s Busted."

*Anyone in Nashville wanna record that, we can talk.

    John Prine’s “They oughta name a drink after you.”

    17 out of 20 – and I can’t stand country music exactly because of titles and song lyrics like those. It’s like the writers sit in a room trying to out “wit” each other. I also liken it to turning movie titles into porn titles.

    Kinda ashamed to admit it but, 15/20. The only time I listened to country music was when my ex-husband went through a Dixie Chicks phase (no, that’s not why he’s an ex!).

  • Liz

    13 out of 20. I don’t listen to any country music but I got that score for picking the weirdest song titles.

  • Jim

    I got 18.
    Should I feel any sense of shame over this?:)

  • carrie

    yes, jim, be ashamed with me!

  • peach

    I got 16 out of 20! I’m pretty pleased with myself considering I guessed on a few of them. Still, I do wish “She got the ring, I got the finger” was a real song!

    12 out of 20. Country Music really does have weird and funny names for their songs. But hey, Ray Stevens is their answer to Weird Al Yankovic so what did you expect?

    More they could have used:
    “Sometimes You’re the Windshield, Sometimes You’re the Bug”
    “What Part of No Don’t You Understand”
    and one that I swear exists, but I’ve never been able to find it, so it’s possible I made it up:
    “I Still Miss My Man But My Aim’s Getting Better”

    I made a drinking song mix for St. Patricks Day a few years back. Had to include these country classics: “Think I’ll Just Stay Here and Drink,” by Merle Haggard, and “What’s Made Milwaukee Famous Has Made a Loser Out of Me,” by Jerry Lee Lewis.

    Country songwriting has taken a steep dive in the last 10 years. Outside of a handfull of stars like Vince Gill, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride and Keith Urban, a lot of the mid-level acts stack their songs with cliches. When listening to country radio count how many country cliches you can spot. pickup truck, workin’ all week, drinkin’ all night, got in a fight, that’s where I found Jesus, listening to (george jones, Tim McGraw, Cash, et. all)
