Here are the twenty best songs featuring the adverb “again” in their titles.
“Alone Again Naturally” by Gilbert O’Sullivan: A song beginning with attempted suicide and ending with the death of a parent should not be as sweet-sounding as this early 70s pop classic.
“Bigmouth Strikes Again” by the Smiths: Morrissey and Marr were at their peak on The Queen Is Dead, as evidenced by this single with murderous lyrics and a comical chorus.
“Never Gonna Fall in Love Again” by Eric Carmen: The front man of the Raspberries mellowed out after going solo, charting with tunes like “All by Myself” and this one.
“I Missed Again” by Phil Collins: Speaking of front men going solo, the ex-Genesis vocalist found success alone with this hit, one of many from his Face Value debut.
“It’s Raining Again” by Supertramp: This single was the only hit from the group’s last studio album with both Roger Hodgson and Rick Davies, a disappointing follow-up to Breakfast in America called Famous Last Words.
“You Win Again” by Hank Williams: Here the country legend visits a familiar theme in his lyrics, the deceit of the woman he loved.
“Do It Again” by Steely Dan: The first song from their first album, Can’t Buy a Thrill, was a harbinger of the great rock-jazz legacy Donald Fagin and Walter Becker would forge for the the next four decades.
“Here You Come Again” by Dolly Parton: The country music diva crossed over from country to pop on this hit, which was followed by her great role in the film 9 to 5.
“Let’s Do It Again” by the Staple Singers: The R&B group hit the charts several times, but this one remains their most enduring.
“Here Come Those Tears Again” by Jackson Browne: Probably the saddest of the folk-rocker’s many hits, this piano tune was one of the highlights from The Pretender.
“Here Comes the Rain Again” by the Eurhythmics: The combo of Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart conjured enduring hits like this one and “Sweet Dreams.”
“Here It Goes Again” by OK Go: Aided by a creative video, this alternative pop band has managed to reach the charts numerous times in its near two decades of existence.
“Never Going Back Again” by Fleetwood Mac: Often overlooked because of the huge hits on Rumours, this folk tune showcases the unrivaled guitar work of Lindsey Buckingham.
“On the Road Again” by Willie Nelson: This classic, along with “To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before,” is the tune most associated with the country music Hall of Famer.
“What’s My Age Again?” by Blink 182: This alt-rock hit was dominating radio stations across the country when we passed into the new century.
“When Will I See You Again?” by the Three Degrees: This tune proved to be the biggest hit of the Motown group, who would later be mentioned along with Frankie Vaughn in Loudon Wainwright’s ballad “Harry’s Wall.”
“The Bugle Sounds Again” by Aztec Camera: Appropriately bringing High Land Hard Rain to a close, this tune is as excellent as everything else on the debut album of Roddy Frame and his band.
“Try and Love Again” by the Eagles: This catchy country-ringed tune from Hotel California turned out to be the last contribution Randy Meisner would make before being replaced by Timothy B. Schmidt.
“Home Again” by Elton John: The Rocket Man teamed up again with Bernie Taupin to record The Diving Board, from which this tune emerged. “
Back on My Feet Again” by the Babys: John Waite, before moving on to a storied solo career, recorded popular hits like “Isn’t It Time?”, “Every Time I Think of You” and this one from the Union Jack album.
