Fun with my iTunes library

I have three different songs titled "America," one sung by Chita Rivera (from West Side Story, 1957), one sung by Neil Diamond, and one sung by Simon and Garfunkel.

There are three different songs with "Ballad" in the title: "Ballad of a Thin Man" by Bob Dylan, "The Ballad of John and Yoko" by The Beatles, and "The Ballad of Mack the Knife" by Gerald Price (from The Threepenny Opera, 1954).

Three songs exhort the listener to Go: "Go and Say Goodbye" by Buffalo Springfield, "Go Tell It On the Mountain" by Simon and Garfunkel, and "Go to the Mirror" by The Who.

There are three songs beginning with Oh: "Oh, Lady Be Good" by Artie Shaw (from Symphony in Swing, 1939), "Oh Susanna" by James Taylor, and "Oh What a Beautiful Mornin'" by Gordon MacRae (from the film version of Oklahoma, 1955).

There are even two songs beginning with Q: "Quarter to Three" by Bruce Springsteen and "Queen Jane Approximately" by Bob Dylan. Top that.

I, also, have two songs beginning with Q. One is that same Dylan song, and the other is Questions, by Buffalo Springfield. But I actually have two different versions of Questions, for a total of 3 songs beginning with Q.

I have two songs starting with Oh - Oh Atlanta and Oh Very Young by Little Feat and Cat Stevens, respectively - but I also have two songs beginning with O: O Solo Mio and O Tannenbaum, by David Grisman & Tony Rice and the Vince Giraldi Trio, respectively.
