The greatest thing you’ll ever learn …
“Naked,” Avril Lavigne
“Naked Puppets,” Moxy Fruvous
“Nan You’re a Window Shopper,” Lily Allen
“Nao Esperando,” 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
Kind of a narrow range there, alphabetically, but it produced an irresistible title for the post.
The Lily Allen/Kirsty MacColl juxtaposition seems apt. And seeing Howard Jones in the same list as Moby makes me want to say something like “Howard Jones was to the ’80s what Moby was to the ’90s,” although having to defend such a proposition would involve more thinking and talking about those two than any of us would find interesting. Still, Humans’ Lib and Play — period pieces, but not bad.
After making this list I thought I had skipped “Natural” by Pedro the Lion, but it turns out that song is actually called “When They Really Get to Know You They Will Run” — which may just be the most insightfully neurotic song title of all time.
