Readers recommend: Songs about people with unusually-shaped heads

Might be a while before Dorian gets around to this one, so in the meantime I propose:

Thin White Rope: "Moonhead"
Morphine; "Head With Wings"
Talking Heads (sic): "Radio Head"
Donner Party: "The Godlike Porpoise Head Of Blue-Eyed Mary"
The Fall: "Pumpkinhead Xscapes"
Iam McNabb: "Head Like A Rock"
The Bluetones: "Marblehead Johnson"
Pete Brown & Piblokto!: "Aeroplane Head Woman"
Kathryn Williams: "Beachy Head"
Paul Melancon: "Jeff Lynne"

Hi Shiv,

Velcome aboard, top first post, however, as editor, I DEMAND a picture with each bloggage, ESPECIALLY if we're talking funny shaped heads here!!

May I recommend "To fix the gash in your head" by A Place To Bury Strangers. A musical polar opposite to the Sugababes "Hole In Your Head". Imagine that!

I forgot "Gardenhead" by Neutral Milk Hotel.

Now, THERE"S a band.

Might have to do a bloggage, as the magnum opus "in The Aeroplane Over The Sea" nudges towards its 10th aniiversairy.

The Point is a film, but it's got music by Harry Nilsson and it's about the only round-headed person in the land of pointyheads.

Crowded House: "Pineapple Head" - how could I have forgotten, etc.

Unfortunately, Marblehead Johnson is a nickname for a penis. Can you see what it is yet?
