  • Popular Song Titles

    Just thinking the other day and thought this'd be a good idea for a topic.

    Sometimes theres a few songs that have the same title or word/phrase in the title, usually its the one word titled ones that match and stand out the most. Just looking through my library, theres a few that have 3 or 4 songs and beyond with the same one-word title.

    Example to start us off, this one added a few to my library in 2013:

    Alive:
    S Club (2003)
    Natalie Bassingthwaighte (2008)
    Black Eyed Peas (2009)
    Goldfrapp (2010)
    Jessie J (2013)
    Dami Im (2013)
    One Direction (2013)

    Any others? It's kinda interesting, do you think some of these common words and/or phrases are sometimes overused throughout music history on one hand, and you think the artists could maybe have tried a bit of creative naming using other lyrics or a non-mentioned title, brackets etc;

    or sometimes other things if theyve already had a song in their own discography with the same name to differentiate it or theres been a really well known song with the same name; covered a song by another artist with the same name as one of their own songs ( 'song' ('insert artist name' version cover), etc etc;

    or is it just funny to see the ones that seem to be popular now and again. What do you think.

        Breathe is another popular title for a song....Kylie Minogue, The Prodigy, Faith Hill...just to name a few. I have a whole list somewhere, might dig it out & come up with some more.

          It has more interest or weight behind it IMO if the tracks were all hits as well.

          With what you said Shell, these are all songs titled 'Breathe' that made the ARIA Chart:

          The Prodigy (1996)
          Kylie Minogue (1997)
          Faith Hill (1999)
          Blu Cantrell (2002)
          Michelle Branch (2003)
          Fabolous (2004)
          Ricki-Lee (2005)

          So there was a well-known 'Breathe' every year from 2002 to 2005

                There are surely dozens of songs titled I Need You as well.
                Je n'ai qu'une philosophie: Être acceptée comme je suis. Malgré tout ce qu'on me dit, je reste le poing levé.
