Rock and roll doesn’t have to follow any rules.  Or should I say, IT AIN’T GOTTA FOLLOW NO RULES.  But for all you grammar nuts, here are 10 classic song titles with their grammar corrected . . .

 

1.  “I Feel Good” by James Brown.

 

The “Corrected” Title:  “I Feel Well”.

 

This one’s a big stretch though, since he’s actually singing about his emotions . . . not his physical health.

 

 

2.  “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” by U2.

 

The Grammatically Correct Title:  “I Still Haven’t Found [That for Which] I’m Looking”.

 

 

3.  “Rocket Man” by Elton John.

 

The “Corrected” Title:  “Rocket Person”.  (???)

 

This one is obviously a cheat.  It’s more of a “Politically Correct” Title.  #ThisToo?

 

 

4.  “Me and Bobby McGee” by Janis Joplin.

 

The “Corrected” Title:  “Bobby McGee and I”.

 

This is a weak fix too, because the title’s being taken out of context.  When you look at the actual lyrics, “Good enough for me and Bobby McGee,” you could argue that it’s actually fine the way it is.

 

 

5.  “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction”, by the Rolling Stones.

 

The Grammatically Correct Title:  “I Can’t Get Any Satisfaction”.

 

 

6.  “Who You Gonna Call (Ghostbusters)” by Ray Parker Jr.

 

The Grammatically Correct Title:  “Whom Are You Going to Call (Ghostbusters)”.

 

 

7.  “Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers.

 

The Grammatically Correct Title:  “There is No Sunshine”.

 

 

8.  “Who Do You Love” by Bo Diddley.

 

The Grammatically Correct Title:  “Whom Do You Love”.

 

 

9.  “What’s Love Got to Do with It” by Tina Turner.

 

The Grammatically Correct Title:  “What’s Love Have to Do with It”.

 

 

10.  “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On” by Jerry Lee Lewis.

 

The Grammatically Correct Title:  “A Whole Lot of Shaking Going On”.
