Inexplicable Song Titles

Over supper with sidelobe and yarbiedoll this evening, I was continuing to bask in the glory of the song Badge (lyrics), which I really enjoy listening to. Then I got to thinking about how I have absolutely no idea what the song title has to do with the song. Maybe I'm just stupid or naive, but I just don't get it. If someone can clue me in, that would be great.

So I decided to make a list of songs whose titles don't match the song. I haven't thought much about it yet, but I figured I'd go ahead and be lazy and ask the LJ Brain TrustTM to help out. A few ground rules: the song must have lyrics and if the title of the song shows up anywhere in the lyrics, that's enough of an explanation for me.

Go ahead and make my list for me in the comments. Give me songs whose titles are inexplicable.

Re: Badge comes from bad spelling
Interesting, but still inexplicable with relation to the song itself. I linked the Wikipedia article about the song, which has some interesting information along the lines of your clue.

But, without knowing the story of the origin of the song, the title makes no sense. I want to find more songs like this.
