1) How many songs can you think of whose titles are wordwise palindromic? Examples: "I Palindrome I" by They Might Be Giants or "Talk Talk" by Talk Talk. Single-word titles don't count.

2) What is your brain doing when you're trying to think of songs for (1)? I can come up with quite a few, but I have no idea how I'm doing it.

I've been listening to a lot of Johnny Cash lately, especially when driving around northern Nevada, as it just seems appropriate. I don't like country music in general, but Johnny Cash just rules. I mean, the first time I heard him was singing in front of an Irish alternative-rock band (U2, "The Wanderer"), and the second time was his cover of a pop-industrial artist (Nine Inch Nails, "Hurt"), and he pulled them both off beautifully. How can you not love that?

Anyway, despite a surprising musical range, I think we can all agree that there are many songs we're happy Johnny Cash *didn't* perform. The top five that Molly and I came up with:

1) Meredith Brooks, "Bitch"
2) Backstreet Boys, "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)"
3) "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts"
4) NWA, "Straight Outta Compton"
5) Yoshie Hayasaka, "No Way! Part 2" (from a Ranma 1/2 soundtrack)

Additions to this list are welcome!
