Thread: Just for fun: same song title for different songs

JimSheridan - 1/3/2019 at 03:59 PM

A friend of mine was criticizing Steve Miller for stealing "Gangster of Love" from Johnny Guitar Watson. I really don't know either musician's catalogue, so I did some research. I know Steve Miller's hit from the mid 1970s, but it turns out that on his much earlier "Sailor" LP Steve Miller also covered a different song that was also called "Gangster of Love" by Watson.

So, what other examples are there of different songs that have the same title?

One I thought of is "Heartbreaker." Pat Benatar and Led Zeppelin and Free all have a song by that name, albeit completely different tunes. The Stones have a song called "Do Do Do Do Do (Heartbreaker)" also.

Any other examples?

No, it's not a cover. The Molly Hatchet song is such an abomination it should be considered a different song altogether.

I've always enjoyed the Molly Hatchet version. A few years ago it was pointed out to me that the Hatchet version is a cover of Buddy Miles's arrangement of the song (he also covered Midnight Rider):

Holiday is one of my favorite Billy Jones songs from the Outlaws.

While I'm giving some love to the Outlaws I'll throw out a tune and a story.

I saw a Black Crowes Instant Live CD that had Knoxville Girl on the set list and immediately ordered it and was heartbroken when I received it and it wasn't the Outlaws song but a Louvin Brothers cover, not a bad tune it just wasn't my beloved Guitar Army going full speed kick ass on it.


Fretsman - 1/7/2019 at 10:00 PM

A "friendly" theme on these entries...

1.)Old Friends -Simon & Garfunkel/Roger Miller (covered by Willie)

2.) With the Outlaws in my head I remember a gem of an album/title track "Old Friend" by Chris Anderson, The song Old Friend is co-written by some dude Warren Haynes. Whole disc is worthy of a chasedown. Elton did a song called Old Friend on a duets CD (doesn't compare).

3.) My Old Friend - Carl Perkins (some nice Beatles related vid's out there)/Tim McGraw

That's funny. My mom liked Neil and we would listen to him on 8-tracks in her car. Same with Leo Sayer and Jim Croce. I didn't mind it, it was part of my youth.

Music Box was Bellmore I believe and the famous (infamous) Right Track Inn was in Freeport.
All memories now.

I'm pretty sure it was the music box - off either Sunrise Highway or Merrick Rd.

I was on LI for the 1st time in years this summer (I'm from Massapequa). Brought back many memories

I totally agree! And even worse, I had to grow up with my mother playing his horrendous music in the house. There is no redeeming value in his music, its all worthless crap.

Apparently my grandmother knew Neil Sedaka’s mother when they lived in Brooklyn, NY. But that was no excuse to purchase and listen to his records.

Many people probably forget that there was a really bad side to the music of the Seventies decade. Neil Sedaka was just one of many lame pop artists that flourished unnecessarily. There was also Barry Manilow, the Carpenters, John Denver, to name a few. Oh yes, the entire disco thing too!
