2 LISTS questions

#1 What is the earliest song/earliest songs on an album/single (NOT LIVE) that have the F word. The two that stick out to me are Lennon's "Working Class Hero" ('70) and Harry Nilsson's "You're Breaking My Heart" ('72) - amazing song btw.

#2 Also, are there any bands that released a double album for their FIRST release on a major label. Are there any??

Perhaps the earliest usage of the word in popular music was the 1938 Eddy Duchin release of the Louis Armstrong song "Ol' Man Mose". The words created a scandal at the time, resulting in sales of 170,000 copies during the Great Depression years when sales of 20,000 were considered blockbuster. The verse reads:

(We believe) He kicked the bucket,
(We believe) Yeah man, buck-buck-bucket,
(We believe) He kicked the bucket and ol' man mose is dead,
(We believe) Ahh, fuck it!
(We believe) Buck-buck-bucket,
(We believe) He kicked the bucket and ol' man mose is dead.

2. I know of one off hand. Nellie McKay talked Columbia into releasing her debut CD, Get Away From Me, as a double album- even though the album could easily fit on a single CD. She wanted it released this way to create the feeling of "flipping the record".
