The 100 Greatest Song Titles Of All Time

In honor of the recent one year anniversary of Journey of a Frontman , I present to you a list that I compiled, The 100 Greatest Song Titles Of All Time.

The song titles that I chose were based off of several factors:

  • Thought Provoking
  • Word Combinations
  • Visual Imagery
  • Humor
  • General Creativity
  • Connection to Events and/or People

(Also, the songs are NOT in any particular order!)

And as a special bonus, after all one hundred songs, I asked some of those that I have interviewed throughout the past year for Journey of a Frontman what their favorite song title is, as well as some surprise guests, making their JOAF debut!
