Get up!

As we tussle in one-upmanship over each other on yet another LMS, what better theme could there be than the act of standing itself? This time around, get up on your feet and enumerate song titles with “stand” or whatever participle or variation you’re into. Don’t take it lying down!

  10. Just checked my iPod for tracks beginning with the word Stand (cheating, yes, but I’m bored at work this Friday afternoon, so thank you RTH for the diversion):

    Stand by Me, Yeah by Sloan
    Stand on Your Own Head by They Might Be Giants
    Stand Out by Love
    Standing in the Rain by Husker Du
    Standing on the Verge of Getting It On by Funkadelic
    and 2 by Velvet Crush: Standing Down and Standing Still.

    Back to work for me!

  11. Oh, Stand! by Sly was on the iPod too. That was one of the first LPs I ever bought as a kid with my own hard earned money!

  12. Cheating is one thing, markkay, but as a rule in any Last Man Standing we ask that folks keep things to one entry per post. Don’t Bogart the thread!


    That said, glad we could break up the boredom.

  13. “I Can’t Stand the Rain,” Annie Peebles. (Can’t believe The Great One didn’t beat me to it.)

  14. Suburban kid

  19. So why is she your baby if you can’t stand her . Is it an emotionally masochistic relationship? Just saying. Gee I do know its just a title

  20. “Standing out on the Highway” Dire Sraits

  21. I meant “Dire Straits” Dire Straits is a band who never made it.

  22. Why are we holding back so long on REM’s “Stand”? Does anyone really think that’s going to be the ace in the hole?

    Or the Tina Turner version.

  27. Suburban kid

    Same here, ladymissk. Hooked on a Feeling was the first I ever bought, but a few years earlier a babysitter gave me her old scratched Beatles 45 so that was the first I owned.

  28. Suburban kid

    “Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadows?”

  29. cliff sovinsanity

    Stand Up And Fight – Bush Tetras

  30. Slim Jade

    Train In Vain keeps popping into my head, but that doesn’t quite count.

  31. cliff sovinsanity

    I seem to recall seeing it listed Train In Vain (Stand By Me) in some versions of the album. I think on the CD version it’s printed on the disc.

  32. “The Stand” by the Alarm. I think that refers to the Stephen King book.

    I have my doubts about this one. It is about making a stand against an enemy, not standing up on your feet. Applying this STANDard would disqualify #3, 5, 11 and 14.

  33. Suburban kid

    Um. . . .

    Stand By Me? Ben E. King? No. 26????
