Best songs with Charlie or Charles in the title

Today we would be going through some great songs with Charlie in the title. Our list contains certain songs like Charlie Brown by Coldplay and so many others. I do have a brother named but I enjoy calling him Charlie because it reminds me of some of the great songs with Charles in the title I have listened to.

Below is our compilation of the best songs with Charlie in the title:

1. Charlie Brown by Coldplay song

What comes to mind when you hear the name, Charlie Brown? This Is one of the best songs with “Charlie” in the title. The song Charlie Brown was released as the debut single of Coldplay’s single titled Mylo Xyloto on 6 December 2011.

To me, this song is about a want that never seems to be fulfilled; even the melody conveys a sense of longing.

This song, in my opinion, embodies all of those qualities. But Chris Martin invites us to “Be the cartoon heart” in this song, which is uplifting. The first time I heard that remark, I thought of the episode of Charlie Brown where they just had a little Christmas tree yet were still ecstatic.

Another way of saying “we will be glowing in the dark” is to say that we should always have a positive outlook on life. When things go wrong, this song comes to mind. Everything about the music and lyrics is excellent.

2. Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo by Bloodhound Gang

The lyrics of a song can convey a different thought to different people. To me, this is one of the most confusing songs with Charlie in the title. A lot of people think this song is solely about sex due to the phrase “Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo” which is used in the song to represent the word F**K.

I don’t agree that this song is about sex or the desire to have s**x because he never actually says that he wants to do so. What he does explicitly say, though, is that he does not want to beat around the bush, and I think this is what the whole song is about.

The topic of sex is just an example of a so-called “delicate” topic, which many people have problems talking about in a straight way. Making fun of the way these people talk about it, exposes the ridiculousness of their indirectness. Therefore, I think the underlying message is as simple as this: When you have something to say, say it directly or don’t say it at all.

By the way, in this song, the male genitals is referred to as the whoopee stick, the lap rocket, the cranny ax, the boink swatter, the nether rod, the dude piston, the quiver bone, and the pork steeple.

3. Charlie Boy by The Lumineers

The Lumineers - Charlie Boy

This is an astonishingly lovely song, and the words contain a great deal of compassion, insight, and understanding for their fellow man. Thank you, jrhmasters and Schultze, for the information you provided on the specifics that served as the motivation for it.

My curiosity led me to wonder how this young artist could have had a very direct connection to the Vietnam War in the first place.

After doing some research, I discovered that the fantastic song with Charlie in the title is actually about a member of Wesley’s family who is the lead singer.

According to the lyrics, Charles John Schultz, a United States Marine Corps second lieutenant who was killed in Vietnam, was born in 1944. The song also suggests that he was from Metuchen.

How he discusses the rifts that were caused among families as a result of the war is quite insightful. But the soldier who is being mourned here was a volunteer, and he most likely died early in the conflict.

The pledge that John F. Kennedy would pay any price for liberty was, in fact, expensive. In Vietnam, it came to a disastrous and discredited end. But Charlie was serious when he volunteered his service and the significant sacrifice he was willing to make.

My emotions are stirred by the music; there is no judgment, only an attempt to understand all perspectives presented. It brings home the magnitude of the loss, and it exudes an overwhelming sense of love and devotion to one’s country.

4. Charlie by Red Hot Chili Peppers

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Charlie [Official Music Video]

Released from the RHCP double album titled  Stadium Arcadium, the song Charlie, is no doubt, one of the best songs with Charlie in the title that you can listen to.

I’ve been an RHCP fan for a long time, I don’t think the song was talking about him relapsing or having fun with drugs when the song was made.

I think it’s about him coming to terms with his abuse of cocaine and accepting that he had fun on it and maybe even just liked doing it but realized it had to stop for the better of his health or career.

5. Charlie Big Potato by Skunk Anansie

Skunk Anansie - Charlie Big Potato

The clue to the meaning of this song is in the music video, with a little kid in the bed and the creepy adult touching him while the kid looks panicked.

It’s about child abuse (probably sexual), a brother, a sister, and an adult. “Tell it like it is” is a clue to the fact that the girl is trying to keep her sanity by observing and being aware of what is happening, and her brother is in denial.

When a child is a victim of abuse, it develops an alternative reality (denial) as a defense mechanism, because it can overcome its abuser, neither physically nor mentally. The song is also a statement that even living in horror and being aware of it is better than denial because at least you are not lost.

6. Lake Charles by Lucinda Williams

Lucinda Wiliams - "Lake Charles" [Live From Austin, TX]

Concluding our list of songs with Charlie in the title is this song by Lucinda Williams, titled Lake Charles.

This song is so sad. It’s about a guy who tried to create a more fitting identity by moving the story of his life to Lake Charles, Louisiana (instead of Texas, his actual birthplace).

His relationship with Lucinda sounded like it was on a good arc, but then he died suddenly, in the dark, in a tangle of twisted metal and gasoline, in pain, alone. Let’s hope those angels brought him his well-deserved release.
