How many songs have had a "sequel" ?

I'm bored, can you tell?
Anyway, I can think of a few off the top of my head:


The Twist --> Let's Twist Again
It's My Party --> Judy's Turn To Cry
Major Tom --> Earth Below Us


Are there any more out there?

Harry Chapin made the song 'Taxi' in 1972, and followed it up with 'Sequel' some 8 years later.

Metallica's "Unforgiven" and "Unforgiven II"

Maybe NOFX's "Liza and Louise", then the separate followups "Liza" and "Louise"

C.W. McCall's "Convoy" was followed up with "'Round The World With The Rubber Duck"

Supposedly, "I'd Do Anything for Love but I Won't Do That" is Meat Loaf's sequel to "Paradise by the Dashboard Light"

John Mellencamp had a follow up to Jack and Diane recently. Can't remember the title though.

Adam Sandler put out a new "Chanukaka Song" a couple of year's after the first. And yes, I know I probably spelled Chanukaka wrong. Sorry.

Too many rap songs to name. But one example is the Roxanne, Roxanne songs back in the 80s. Not only were there sequels but there was a back-and-forth diss-fest between a couple people.

Fractured Mirror -> Fractured Too

Didn't RUSH do a few songs that had sequels that were on 2 or 3 albums?

Oh yeah, how about "Monster Mash" and "Monster's Holiday" ? That sort of counts...


BTW -- I just realized that in my original post I called it "Major Tom" and not "Space Oddity"

<---- dumbass

YOu also listed the wrong song as a sequel. Bowie's songs are Space Oddity and Ashes To Ashes.

The other song you listed is Major Tom Coming Home.

"Peggy Sue" and "Peggy Sue Got Married" - Buddy Holly
"Ramrod" and "Wreck on the Highway" - Bruce Springsteen (both from the same album)

Also, I've heard that "The River" is Springsteen's sequel to "Thunder Road", which is depressing as all hell. I don't know if it's true, but it certainly makes sense.

Side one of Hemispheres is the continuation of "Cygnus X-1" from their previous album, A Farewell to Kings.

Now see what you've made me do? My indie-rock cred is completely shot.
