Naked – Nearly

Everybody needs some inspiration …

"Naked," Avril Lavigne
"Nan, You're a Window Shopper," Lily Allen
"Nao Esperanto," Kirsty MacColl
"The Narrow," Matt Jones
"The National Anthem," Radiohead
"Natural," Howard Jones
"Natural Blues," Moby
"Natural Gift," The Kinks
"Nature Boy," Nat King Cole
"Ne Me Quitte Pas," Nina Simone
"Near You Always," Jewel
"Nearer Than Heaven," The Delays
"Nearly Lost You," Screaming Trees

It wasn't until I saw the juxtaposition of Lily Allen and Kirsty MacColl here that I realized, ah, so that's who she reminds me of.

"Steve Martin's standup routine included a "theory" that all the farts eventually wind up in ..."

The ‘weird’ fringe is the biggest ..."
"I'm having trouble keeping from giggling at this story about how Uranus probably smells."

The ‘weird’ fringe is the biggest ..."
"I meant Trump/GOP voters - red-staters, heartlanders, whatever you want to call them - but ..."

The ‘weird’ fringe is the biggest ..."

    Na Marjanse — Adolph Hofner and His Texans, aka The Pearl Wranglers
    The Nazz are Blue — The Yardbirds
    Nearer My God to Thee — Anne Murray. (I also have this by Ladysmith Black Mombazo, but that is a medley with “Amazing Grace,” and “Amazing Grace” is listed first.”
    That’s a Czech polka, blues by an English band, and a hymn. iTunes thinks I have multiple personality disorder.

    @ J Neo Marvin who has Nashville Cats on his mp3 player:
    I hate that song. My father in law played that for me on a trip to Laughlin, and I ended up listening to it at least 5 times in a row. I was ready to put icepicks through my ears by the end of the third time.
    I would put in the running for worst song ever. Part of it is because it’s so simple– it’s like the worst earworm ever because I *hate* that song.

    “Nature Trail To Hell”, Weird Al Yankovic
    “Navigating The Windward Passage”, The Lawrence Arms
    Most recommended: “Naked Eye” by Luscious Jackson, although the rest of the album is a bit of a letdown, followed by “National Brotherhood Week”, which is one of Tom Lehrer’s best. Honorable mention goes to “Navigating The Windward Passage”, a bit of postmillenial punk that I really enjoy but I don’t see as being Fred’s thing, and to “Naked Womyn”, which always gets a laugh from my feckless side:
    I like naked womyn with other naked womyn
    I like naked womyn with cheese

    (music stops, singer switches from singing to a normal speaking voice)
    I’m from Wisconsin.

  • penny

    I have no songs with naked in the title :(
    Nails for Breakfast, Tacks for Snacks — Panic! At the Disco
    Naima’s Love Song — Verve
    Nanci — Toad the Wet Sprocket
    Nasty Booger Song — Efenwealt Wystle
    Nations of the World — Animaniacs
    Nautilus — Nine Miles
    Not sure how I don’t have a copy of National Brotherhood Week — thanks for reminding me to fix that, although its stuck in my head now.

  • Sorry Jessica. At least I’m not the only one here who has it. Granted, there are probably 20 or so Lovin’ Spoonful songs I like better.

    Naked – The Trews
    Naked Eye – Luscious Jackson
    Napoleon – Kelly and the Kellygirls
    Narrow – Fruit
    Natural Blues – Moby
    Natural Disasters – Propagandhi
    Natural Selection – Anna Dano
    Nautical Disaster – The Tragically Hip (two versions)
    Naveed – Our Lady Peace
    Near the Woodpile – Calexico
    Near Wild Heaven – REM
    Lots to recommend this week. Napoleon is a terribly fun song (Kelly and the Kellygirls are a terribly fun band … check them out). And, of course, Nautical Disaster is a classic.

  • David no longer in Maine

    I think this is the first time that I have had one of the songs Fred listed.
    “Naked Sunday”, Stone Temple Pilots
    “Nature Wants To Kill Me”, Eleven
    “Nazi Driver”, Soundgraden
    “Nearly Lost You”, Screaming Trees
    The most recommended would be “Nature Wants To Kill Me”. On a side note, two (or possibly three, I am not sure which of the two drummers who appeared on that album was on that song) were also in a band that Mark Lanegan of Screaming Trees was in.

  • I’m just stunned to see you mention Kirsty MacColl. I wish I could explain how happy this makes me, but I haven’t yet signed up for Jenkins’ writers guild, so I can’t.

    And here I thought I wouldn’t have much for this one.

  • Not Really Here

    Late to the party, but I’ve just suddenly realized I have a contribution to make to a song thread that hasn’t already been taken.
    Naked in the Rain- Dio
    That’s all.
