Trust Me, It's Not What You Think !

One should be able to name a song whatever they want, right?  Sure, but after a genre or band has a reputation for creating songs with certain titles, good luck changing the mindset. 

Example #1 ... The Beach Boys - "Surf's Up."  Fans of the band know it's a masterpiece and everyone else would probably roll their eyes if you tell 'em the title without playing the song.

Example #2 ... The Beach Boys - "All I Wanna Do". A sad-tinged classic from the Sunflower album, this gem is forever trapped by a mundane title every bit as uninformative as "Surf's Up".
