This is not a random list

At the end of the song "Schadenfreude" from Avenue Q, the singer spells out the word "schadenfreude." A few weeks ago, as I listened to the song, I started thinking about other songs in which words are spelled out. With the help of my officemate, I came up with ten others, which I jotted onto a page from my desk calendar and then promptly buried under a pile of papers. As I was just now cleaning off my desk, I found the list. And here it is.

  • Them, "Gloria"
  • The Kinks, "Lola"
  • Squirrel Nut Zippers, "Hell"
  • Reba McIntyre, "I'm a Woman"
  • Tammy Wynette, "D-I-V-O-R-C-E"
  • Lem, "Steal My Sunshine"
  • Aretha Franklin, "Respect"
  • Bay City Rollers, "Saturday Night"
  • George M. Cohan, "Harrigan"
  • Traditional, "B-I-N-G-O"

Any others?
