Five and a half months ago, regardless of the next spring, I placed my lawn mower in the shed. Obviously I had to put a lot of other stuff in afterwards, as I had to spend almost an entire afternoon removing things just to get the mower out.
While I was working I made the decision never to store the mower in the middle of the shed again. In the process of cutting the grass, my mind began to consider songs that had the word Middle in their titles.
Here is a list of fifteen of these songs.
Crazy Middle Ages by Jerry Lee Lewis
It’s not as well-known as “Great Balls of Fire”, but no collection of rockabilly legend hits would be complete without this classic.
Stuck in the middle with you by the thief’s wheel
Gerry Rafferty has had more solo success, but this lasting success gave us a first glimpse of his talent.

This title song served as proof that the Piano Man had returned to rock after his brief foray into the 1950s and early 1960s. An innocent man.

Parodying the Fab Four in the mid-70s, these comedians ended up making a catchy album with Beatlesque songs like this one that sounds like “I Am the Walrus”.
