When listening to a version of Brecht's "Surabaya Johnny" thought of how many songs involve the name "Johnny" - started compiling a list. I know that I'm missing some very obvious ones... Any other great music names?

Johnny Remember Me, a great Joe Meek song I've mentioned on OTF before.

You could shove in the classic panic-core drum and bass tune Johnny by Johnny Jungle, too. Surburban Base business, seen?

Oh yeah, reggae. Johnny Too
Bad
by The Slickers is a great tune (from The Harder They Come soundtrack).

"Walking down the road with a pistol in your belt,
Johnny you're too bad...."

Of course there's Too Long, Johnny by Hugh Laurie:

Too long Johnny
Too long, it's way too long

Too long Johnny
Too long, it's way too long

Make it shorter, Johnny
It's been too long for way too long

That's a perfect length now, Johnny
But it just may be a bit too wide

The length is perfect, Johnny
But it just may be a bit too wide

Take a little off the width, Johnny
And we got ourselves a perfect size

Oh, now that's too much, Johnny
You gone and made it all too thin

The length is perfect, Johnny
But you gone and made it all too thin

Looks like you'll have to throw it away, Johnny
And start all over again


It's a classic.
