Friday random ten: W for the win

Almost done with the alphabet, at which point I’ll have to come up with a new gimmick to get me through a few weeks. But until then, the W names.

1. Dance Hall Days – Wang Chung
2. Casey Jones – Warren Zevon
3. I Can’t Turn You Loose – Was (Not Was)
4. Rainy Day Woman – Waylon Jennings
5. Ships With Holes Will Sink – We Were Promised Jetpacks
6. Waterfall – Wendy & Lisa
7. You May Be Right – What Made Milwaukee Famous
8. Late Night Television – Wild Moccasins
9. Hesitation Blues – Willie Nelson & Asleep At The Wheel
10. This Land Is Your Land – Woody Guthrie

Whatever else may be true about them, We Were Promised Jetpacks and What Made Milwaukee Famous are up there on the All-Band Name team. I know, it’s easy enough to come up with clever band names, but having a clever band name and actually making music that someone might want to listen to, that’s something. What’s your favorite name of a band that has produced at least one worthwhile song?
