Idiotic titles, but great songs!

Been thinking about this one lately. Name a bunch of songs that have stupid, idiotic, ridiculous or just unlikeable titles but sound fantastic. I've got two to add at this stage:

Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except for Me and My Monkey by The Beatles
and
Anybody Seen My Baby? by The Rolling Stones

EGSTHEFMAMM is a great fun track, and Harrison is on FIRE. ASMB? shot to my top 5 Stones songs just recently.

Urs?
