I haven't read that, but I'm sure I hate the book.

As for my nominee(s):

I've never read the book, nor have I seen the movie; in fact, I don't even know what the plot is about. But I've always love the name A Clockwork Orange (by Anthony Burgess).

Moving slightly into more modern times (and towards my favourite genre), I also like the names A Game of Thrones (by George R.R. Martin) and The Blade Itself (by Joe Abercrombie).

I like Sometimes A Great Notion by Ken Kesey.
It comes from Goodnight Irene by Leadbelly:

Sometimes I live in the country
Sometimes I live in the town
Sometimes I get a great notion
To jump into the river an’ drown

Strictly speaking of titles, I love

The Monkey That Would Not Kill by Henry Drummond

I have the book, but haven't read it yet. Every time I look at the title, I smile.

Not a book but the movie title "Requiem for a Dream" stuck with me for the longest time. Not sure why, it's not overly poetic and it sounds a bit broken up but it has an abstract sort of substance. Paradoxes are appealing.

On a less serious note, "The nymphos of Rocky Flats" has to be a heavy weight contender.
