Have we got mixed up with the bee gees Hovis?‘The Tragedy of Birth’ was rumoured for World Peace I think: it’s a great timeless title and one that (assuming it was indeed considered) couldn’t be easily forgotten. So I think it might be recovered for the next LP.
They would succumb, and live with being called lazy.He could call it 'wanker' as a come back to the Simpsons episode.
Edit: Or even just 'wank' as a reference to the previous 'Rank' release.
Can you imagine the quandary it would place the critics in if they're reviewing an album called 'wanker' or 'wank'? How could they possibly say anything more deprecating about the album than what the title already suggests? If any of them did succumb to calling the album wank it would look like lazy journalism.
Yes, quite. All you can do is hope for a title that isn't awful. Dog on a Chain is a great album so a real shame it's named after such an unfunny/unpleasant song. Even calling it 'Knockabout World' or 'Love is on its way out', for example, would have been miles better, and they are sufficiently universal themes.His recent titles have been so awful, that I dread to think what comes next. Word Peace Is None of Your Business -- nonsensical. Low in High School -- a terrible pun. California Son -- the laziest and most well-worn pun ever. I Am Not a Dog on a Chain -- petulant and unattractive.
