    The first one that came to mind. Sounds like it would be difficult to keep pace.

    Second one I thought about. Interesting opening. Getting things started off right.

    Any Gilbert and Sullivan patter song. My favourite is "Really doesn't Matter" from Ruddigore.

    What about Stephen Stills “Word Game”?
  13. R. Totale

    R. Totale The Voice of Reason

    I know I've posted this song before in different contexts ("Favorite Song With Accordion", "Favorite Modern Concept Album", maybe more) but it's still great and that Cathal Coughlan sure is a wordy bastard, so I'll do it again. The song is actually called "They Bought", it's from the album/show "Foburg".

    Terminal Eyes - Al Stewart

    This is not surprising as Stewart mentions in the album's liner notes that this is his "If I only wrote I Am A Walrus" song.

    Seems like most songs by ABC were pretty word-dense.

    The Message too.

    Subterranean Homesick Blues was definitely a good call.

    The Tubes - What do you want from life?

    Well, you can't have that, but if you're an American citizen you are entitled to:
    a heated kidney shaped pool,
    a microwave oven--don't watch the food cook,
    a Dyna-Gym--I'll personally demonstrate it in the privacy of your own home,
    a kingsize Titanic unsinkable Molly Brown waterbed with polybendum,
    a foolproof plan and an airtight alibi,
    real simulated Indian jewelry,
    a Gucci shoetree,
    a year's supply of antibiotics,
    a personally autographed picture of Randy Mantooth
    and Bob Dylan's new unlisted phone number,
    a beautifully restored 3rd Reich swizzle stick,
    Rosemary's baby,
    a dream date in kneepads with Paul Williams,
    a new Matador,
    a new mastadon,
    a Maverick,
    a Mustang,
    a Montego,
    a Merc Montclair,
    a Mark IV,
    a meteor,
    a Mercedes,
    an MG,
    or a Malibu,
    a Mort Moriarty,
    a Maserati,
    a Mac truck,
    a Mazda,
    a new Monza,
    or a moped,
    a Winnebago--Hell, a herd of Winnebago's we're giving 'em away,
    or how about a McCulloch chainsaw,
    a Las Vegas wedding,
    a Mexican divorce,
    a solid gold Kama Sutra coffee pot,
    or a baby's arm holding an apple?

    This has a Subterranean Homesick Blues vibe to it (Excavating Rita on the same album explicitly references it), with an explicitly British early 21st century twist:-

    (Tommy Walsh’s Eco House-Half Man Half Biscuit)
