Untitled #2 (Instrumentals Question)

FT//8 comments • 268 views

Today’s Guardian column is about song titles, and specifically how the titles on the new Gold Panda album work. Actually it was originally going to be more about the titles and less about the Panda, but in the end the specifics took the piece over – and that’s for the best: who wants to read me wittering on about titling strategy when they could be hearing about a really good new record?

Joe Tangari came up with a breakdown of song title strategies on his tumblr, and I also really liked Sabina’s points about Villalobos and Autechre.

So I thought I’d throw the floor open to the Freaky Trigger people. Who does instrumental song titles best? What kind of titles do you prefer?
