    How many examples of album titles can we think of that have been used for at least two albums by two (or more) different recording acts?
    Extra points if you have both.
    Things like "Greatest Hits" or "20 Golden Greats" don't count.

    I'll start the ball rolling:

    • Up (Shania Twain, Peter Gabriel)
    • Tapestry (Don McLean, Carole King) (used to have both, now have only Carole)
    • Shine (Kids In the Kitchen, Joni Mitchell) (I have both)
    • To the Bone (The Kinks, Steven Wilson)
    • (The) Dark Side of the Moon (Medicine Head, Pink Floyd)

  20. Linda Ronstadt: Feels Like Home (1995)
    Norah Jones: Feels Like Home (2004)
    Sheryl Crow: Feels Like Home (2013)

    I don't think any of them are particularly great albums, but the Norah Jones one is probably the best of the three. I don't own any of them.

    the story is, as far as i know, the mats decided to name the album after the next song that comes in the radio

    For some reason, maybe my guess from long ago, was that Westerberg imagined a kid walking into a record store and informing the clerk that he wanted to buy “Let It Be”, and then sold the version by The ‘Mats. :laugh:
