My roommate was listening to a song called "Titanium&qu

(I don't even know who sang it.) There are lyrics that go
You shoot me down but I won't fall
I am titanium
When I heard it, it sounded to me like he was saying "...but I won't fall. I am Canadian."

Doesn't exactly fit, but...

Cliff Nobles and Co.

... had a hit in '69 with "The Horse". It was supposed to be the B-side of their first single ("Love Is All Right"), and was in fact just the instrumentals behind Mr Nobles' singing. But DeeJays seemed to like that side better, and it became the hit. Ironically, Mr Nobles doesn't...

It was the 3rd of June...

...another sleepy, rainy Grand Strand day. And it occurs to me that not only did Bobbie Gentry mention this date in a song, but so did Neil Diamond: It was the 3rd of June, on that summer's day, When I became a man at the hands of a girl Almost twice my age. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwHMtqcP6...

Pink Shoelaces.

The lyrics actually make sense, until you think about what's left out. Dodiie Stevens sings about her guy, Dooley, and his crazy clothes: He wears tan shoes with pink shoelaces, A polka-dot vest (and man oh man), He wears tan shoes with pink shoelaces And a big Panama with a purple hatband.
