nice wordplay of titlewave. It just seems there are so many odd song titles, and I hadn't seen anyone else spotlighting on this area of "writing". It's a great way to create awareness of minimalism through songtitles.

Glad you liked the idea and I look forward to more of your list of songs that you think might be interesting.

yea! thanks for the inspiration..
i had a time trying to find a huge data base of songs to choose from. i used 'allsonglyrics.net,' although i'm sure there are many out there. where do you find all your titles?

it's very random what I am doing. If I see a band name I haven't heard of or there is an odd title I look up the name on google and search their songlists.

I would like to find a site with a large database of music without the need to download the site software. Someplace where it give a list of random songs. I imagine a site like that exists somewhere. It seems to be a popular feature to randomize music selections on personal music systems.

Fragmented writing and lyrical phrases appeal to me on so many levels.
