March 27 is a day of celebration for anyone who loves quirky country music song titles. When it comes to song titles, country music has established a talent for quirkiness on one hand and ridiculousness on the other unmatched by any genre. While enjoying actual country music songs with the kinds of titles rarely seen on the mainstream top 40 lists, you could do worse than watching these movies with quirky titles and trying to turn them into a country music song.
Who is Harry Kellerman and Why is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me
Actually, “Who is Harry Kellerman and Why is Saying Those Terrible Things About Me” is a perfect fit for Quirky Country Music Song Titles Day in the sense that it is about a musician. Not a country music star, true, but a folkie type who verges close to the country music side of things. A movie about a guy who is trying to track down the fella who is going around saying horrible things about him has a country music song feel to it as well.
Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mama’s Hung You in the Closet and I’m Feeling so Sad
Watching this on Quirky Country Music Song Titles Day could certainly inspire a talented country song writer to make the title his own. If you are interested in what the movie with the very quirky title “Oh Dad, Poor Bad, Mama’s Hung You in the Closet and I’m Feeling so Sad” is actually about, you may be even more inspired. What kind of country music song could you come up with based on a story of a woman who brings her dead husband still in the casket along with her on a trip to a Caribbean resort with their son who is, alas, very much alive?
Quackser Fortune has a Cousin in the Bronx
It is almost impossible to imagine this quirky title making it into a country music song prior to the 1970s. But, hey, country music, like NASCAR, can be found all over the place. You don’t have to be barefooted daughters of coal miners to enjoy country music today. “Quackser Fortune has a Cousin in the Bronx” is a quirky title for a movie about a guy who actually enjoys his job of shoveling up horse dung, so the movie may well be more suited to a country music tune than its inclusion of a NYC borough might at first have you believe.
