Song Titles You'd Never Guess From Their Lyrics #1

The first in a short series (possibly very short, if I can't think of any others). The idea is pretty simple really and - unlike the song title(s) in question - does exactly what it says on the tin!

Madder Rose - Ultra Anxiety (Teenage Style) mp3

The other thing about Ultra Anxiety is that, good though it undoubtedly is, it's not even one of the best tracks on Panic On, the album it's taken from. The title track, Car Song, Sleep Forever, Drop A Bomb and Margaret are all arguably even better.

Oh sod it, let's have some Panic On as well, to prove the point. Then do yourself a favour - go and buy a copy from Amazon. (it's currently out of print but is easy enough to get hold of reasonably-priced second-hand.) This really is an absolute gem, one of the very best albums of the nineties and well worth a tenner or so of anyone's dosh - ultra anxious teenager or otherwise.

How about "The Bad Touch" by The Bloodhound Gang? I don't believe the title is in the lyrics at all.
