Points not only subtracted, but divided by 2 when a band names a song after the name of the band. I hate it when a band does that. Sadly, even Black Sabbath has a song called Black Sabbath.guitfnky wrote: ↑05 Mar 2020points are subtracted when a great band insists on naming all their songs after the chorus or hook. especially if there are more interesting lyrics in the song that could have been used for the name. bonus points when a song has a cool name about the theme, but doesn’t use any of the lyrics.
I keep a separate list of song, topic, and lyric ideas that strike me as interesting, using the Notes app on my phone, and jot them in there as I go about my day. I imagine that might be even more useful if most of your music is instrumental, since you have to worry (a little bit) less about matching the vibe.
or you could just give everything people names like Frank, or Gertrude, or Samantha, or Bill, or...
Interesting topic, and I totally agree with the OP. I don't like naming songs. Naming a song is terribly difficult more times than not. Good lyrics are also extremely difficult to write, more so, I would say. There's a connection there. I usually just call a song whatever word or phrase I can come up with in the seconds it takes to save the song for the first time. Some really random names, and if I can't come up with something, it becomes "Document1.reason"
Didn't Blur have a big hit called Song No. 2? And John Lennon's Dream #9. U2 has a song called 40. What other artists have songs that are just a number for the name? I'm sure Prince has one (1).
