Thanks (?) to a picture that I saw on [livejournal.com profile] montuos's G+ feed... here are some UNofficial names of fairly well-known songs. How many of them do you recognize, and do you have any others to contribute to the list?

The Viking Kittens Song (the one that prompted this post)

The MTV Song (This may be easy)

The Popcorn Song (I've also heard it called The Jiffy-Pop Song)

The Ajax Song

(Possibly more to come!)

Viking Kittens is the Immigrant Song, by Led Zeppelin.
If I'm thinking of the correct MTV Song (Iiiii waaaant myyyyyy MMMMMTTTTTVVVV?), it's Money for Nothing, by Dire Straits.
I don't recognize your references to the other two.

Here are a couple more:
The Circus Clown song (sampled at the beginning of Three Dog Night's "Must Let The Show Go On", for reference. Also any time a circus appears in a film or television production)
"Beef: It's What's For Dinner" Theme

Circus Clown Song == Grande Marche Chromatique, a/k/a Entrance of the Gladiators, by Julius Fucik; Leo Sayer and his co-writer deliberately stuck snippets into the standard studio arrangement of "The Show Must Go On" (though Sayer himself didn't use the snippets when performing the song live).

It's been long enough since I watched much TV that I don't actually recall the "Beef..." commercials.
