Genius Song Titles
You know when you get a new album and read the track listing, and there's a song you really want to hear just from the title?
Joanna Newsom's (utterly wonderful) new album has a song called
Good Intentions Paving Company
I think this may possible be my favourite song title ever. The song itself doesn't disappoint.
So... what's your favourite song title? What songs did you love before you ever heard them? Have you ever bought a record or a book on the strength of the title alone? And are there some that don't live up to their titular promise?
