With the current trend of basically all pop-rnb-faux house music songs covering the identical subject matter, I felt inclined to compile a list of song titles that should be retired, forever.
Here we go:
"All Night Long"
Most popularly used by Lionel Richie for his 1983 classic. Artists continue to make songs about going 'all night long'. Inspiring. This guy even decided it was a good album title...
There are actually quite a few songs with this title that I love, however it wouldn't have hurt to think of a less trivial song name.
"Get Money", "Gettin Money", "Got Money"
Typical cliche rap shit. See here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here. Seriously.
"Like That", "Like This"
Song titles and song subject matter seem to follow trends as much as the actual sound and production of music. During 2004-2008 it seemed like everyone was on the 'like ...' bandwagon. I remember this current trend frustrating me a lot in its prime.
If it were up to me I would have retired this one after MJ used it. Unfortunately its one of those cliche topics that people will forever write about.
"Turn It Up"
If only ASCAP, APRA, PRS or whatever each countries equivalent is decided to decline song registrations with the aforementioned titles? The world would most certainly be a better place.
"Dance Floor", "On The Dancefloor", "On The Floor", etc
Feel free to chime in your choice of song titles to be retired.
