And when song lyrics start with And [Q7 answer]

The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

Two more are "Stardust" (Hoagy Carmichael) and "Walk Away Renee" (Left Banke)

One of my favorite songs qualifies, but I can understand not wanting to include this one, because in this case the title also starts with "and".

U2 was already on that Q7 list for "Walk On" but they pull the same stunt for "A Sort of Homecoming".

Ugh, I should have checked I Love Music. Maybe this was more Google-able than intended.

Trivia writer Ray Hamel sent me an email...he apparently has his own file of "And" songs and added some that weren't on these lists.

Teresa Brewer, "Anymore"
The Weeknd, "Can't Feel My Face"
Sia, "Elastic Heart"
Five Man Electrical Band, "Signs"

Ken, are you okay if I make this into a Sporcle quiz? I'd credit your quiz as the starting point. The quiz would give the first line of the song, and display a list of all song titles to click on.

I'd call it "The Beginning of the 'And'" or some equally dad-worthy joke.

Sure. I shouldn't get any personal credit for it, the question was suggested by a guy named Eamon Doyle.

Okay, the Sporcle version of the quiz is up.
