Song Names -> Remove a Letter From a Song Title -> M, Page 1

Take one letter out of a song title to change it's meaning. The removal of the letter should still form a word, and the title should be humorous as a result.

For example: Steve Winwood's "Split Decision" would become "Spit Decision"

Thanks to Philip Eno for the inspiration on this one!
