Can You Guess These 5 Songs By Their Grandiloquent Versions?


National Grammar Day

In light of something that doesn’t always have much to do with rock music, National Grammar Day (March 4), has a trending celebration. Started in 2008 by the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar, the nationally recognized celebration has reached into music.  Let’s start with the definition of the challenge:

Solving Grandiloquent Song Titles

  • the adjective grandiloquent (ɡranˈdiləkwənt) means: pompous or extravagant in language, style, or manner, especially in a way that is intended to impress

Rock and roll is good at being grandiloquent, right? The genre of music doesn’t have a lot of words that rhyme with the adjective. So instead of rhyming the word, we can celebrate by putting it into action. Here are 5 classic rock song titles that are riddles!

These 5 songs have been worded into riddles that are extravagant, pompous, and EXTRA.


  1. Remaining in Existence 

YouTube / BeeGees

This one is an easy starter… can you move past this mega-hit?

2. Woman Enclosed by Crimson

YouTube / Daniel Caires

This was a fun movie, remember it? The song that was on the soundtrack is a classic.

3. Spiral Prance

This one seems easy but we’re looking for the original song title. Who was the first band to be credited for this track? This reaches back to the dawn of rock ‘n’ roll.

4. That Man is Dispatching My Awareness, Delicately Using a Composition

YouTube /
Duda Senna

Again, this song is so good it’s been covered numerous times. But what music Queen has the credits?

5. Existing Within The Confines Of Earnest Hope
