Ain’t That A Kick in the Head

I was perusing my iTunes library the other day, as I often do when I am supposed to be writing. And one thing I noticed, because I was getting deep into my writing avoidance, was that of the top six songs in play count, three had “Ain’t” in the title.

We have:

Trick Pony, “Ain’t Wastin’ Good Whiskey On You

Bill Withers, “Ain’t No Sunshine”

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, “People Ain’t No Good”

Based on this evidence, I feel like maybe I should look into “Ain’t Nobody,” “Ain’t No Woman (Like the One I’ve Got),” “Ain’t Misbehavin’,” and/or “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race

p.s. I’m also a big fan of Dwight Yoakam’s “Ain’t That Lonely Yet

  1. And might I suggest “Ain’t Goin’ Down” by Garth Brooks, Xtina’s “Ain’t No Other Man”, Diana Ross’ take on “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, Weezer’s “Say it Ain’t So”, and Brooks and Dunns’ “Ain’t Nothing ’bout You”.

    I perhaps share your affinity for Ain’t as that is off the top of my head.
