    Help me out on a bar bet. I was trying to name a few songs whose title is the same as the name of the band. I can think of three off the top of my head:
    Wang Chung by Wang Chung
    Big Country by Big Country
    Talk Talk by Talk Talk
    I know that there are a lot more. I want to get at least 10. I'd prefer titles where the name of the band makes up the whole title. But if the band is only a part of the title, that's cool too.

    King Crimson In the Court of the Crimson King (Does that count?)
    There are probably several by The Who that would work.

    Yeah, that's a title where the band name is a part of the title but not the whole of the title. There are a ton of those. I don't mind examples of these too. Might come in handy.

    But I kinda wanted ones like the three that I provided.

    Black Sabbath by Black Sabbath from the album Black Sabbath
    Maybe you'll get extra points for not only having the song as the same name as the band, but the album as well.

    Talk Talk also gets the bonus points for having the album self-titled too.

    "Like a Rolling Stone" by the Rolling Stones? [​IMG]
    How about a song with the same name as the *singer*:
    "Van Dyke Parks" by Van Dyke Parks (written by "Public Domain", on the same album as a song called "Public Domain" written by Van Dyke Parks. Oh, the brainpower on display!)

    PS - Technically, the Big Country song is "In A Big Country"
