10 Famous Song Titles with Their Grammar Corrected

BOB is a strong believer that rock and roll shouldn't have to follow any rules. Or should he say, it ain't gonna 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 Corrected 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. 

 

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 Corrected Title: "I Can't Get Any Satisfaction".

 

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

The Corrected Title: "Whom Are You Going to Call (Ghostbusters)".

 

7. "Ain't No Sunshine" by Bill Withers.

The Corrected Title: "There is No Sunshine".

 

8. "Who Do You Love" by Bo Diddley.

The Corrected Title: "Whom Do You Love".

 

9. "What's Love Got to Do with It" by Tina Turner.

The Corrected Title: "What's Love Have to Do with It".

 

10. "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" by Jerry Lee Lewis.

The Corrected Title: "A Whole Lot of Shaking Going On".
