I’m racking my brains, almost certain there’s at least one other song that fits this category, but…I can’t come up with a third song whose title is the same as a book (fictitious or obscure) named within that song’s lyrics.
Here are the two that occurred to me:
R.E.M. “Life and How to Live It” – this fiery live version was recorded in Madison, Wisconsin, May 10, 1985 – a show at which I was actually present. A cow-orker of Rose’s dubbed this from a friend of hers who recorded it – the curious thing is, not too long ago I ran into an online bootleg of the same show…whose break (from turning over the cassette tape, nostalgists) was in the exact same place: in other words, which almost certainly came from the same source. Anyway, this was always a great live R.E.M. song – a year or two, Matthew from Fluxblog posted a more recent live version.
Belle and Sebastian “The State I Am In” (BBC version) – from the recently released collection of BBC recordings on Matador, this version begins almost off-handedly, Stuart Murdoch half-whispering the song’s opening lines, reinforcing the song’s seemingly conversational structure. This version builds to a nice yet still quite controlled peak (those who dislike the band would say “timid” or “repressed” but miss the point), demonstrating the young band’s slightly off-kilter grace.
