Sometimes It's The Simple Things

I've always loved it when the title of an album appears as a song lyric instead of a title of one of the songs. It's very silly, but one of those simple things that gives me a thrill. Of course, I can now only think of a few.
  • Whatever and Ever Amen in "The Battle of Who Could Care Less" (Ben Folds Five)
  • Under the Table and Dreaming in "Ants Marching" (Dave Matthews Band)
  • Awake is the New Sleep in "Whatever It Is" (Ben Lee)
  • Don't Tell a Soul in "We'll Inherit the Earth" (The replacements)

Super, extra double bonus points though to Culture Club. Kissing to be Clever is a line that appears in "Miss Me Blind" on the 1983 Colour by Numbers album. Kissing to be Clever was their 1982 release.

I agree... I think too few people take time to pause and really get into the lyrics of an album, and into why an album is called what it is. I see you cite Ben Folds AND Ben Lee-- someone's been seeing the "Bens" concert series. I got to see Ben with Rufus Wainwright recently, and Ben Lee was supposed to perform, too-- but the weather cut the concert short, so only the last two acts went on. Quel dommage.
