You pretty much nailed them all.

I don't think 'Crazy Tonight' is all that bad, but I wish they just called it 'Crazy Tonight'.

Boom Cha!

Definitely I'll Go Crazy if I Don't Go Crazy Tonight.  STUPID. 
Way too long and should be truncated to "I'll Go Crazy".

God Part II?  are you serious?  you clearly don't understand why that title was chosen (vis-a-vis John Lennon).

I am well aware of why the song title was chosen and what the frame of reference is.  Regardless of WHY it was chosen, I just don't think it's a good song title.  Is that OK with you?

God Part 2 is baaad.  Love and Peace or Else is pretty awful too.  The song doesn't back it up, either.  But I'll Go Crazy is one of the worst titles ever.

picking up on a well known song by a famous person, writing a new song that builds on it stylistically and lyrically and then to name it as a sequel...on an album where the band clearly means to suggest that they are standing on the shoulders/with the likes of Dylan, Hendrix, the Beatles, Elvis...it seems a perfect title.

but if you don't agree, what am I gonna do?

There's nothing wrong wtih disagreements.  But when you tell me I don't understand something, well, you really don't know what I do and don't understand.  You can pile every historical reference in the world behind a title but if it's a bad-sounding title, then its a bad-sounding title. In my opinion.
