Tricky one this. Surprisingly for such a common word, there really aren’t that many songs out there with the word windows in the title.

True enough, if you do a search on any lyrics site, you’ll get quite a few, but they’re from some pretty obscure groups and artists.

Not Those Windows

Now then, most people will have guessed that the windows in question are the double glazing kind, rather than the well-known operating software provided by Bill Gates and chums.

You might be surprised though to know that a search on YouTube for windows songs reveals dozens of the following:

Keep watching. It gets better about halfway through!

A Bit Of Analysis

Well, like I said, there’s not many of them out there and most of those listed above were not actaully released as singles.
