    Default Song titles sound familiar to anyone else?

    If there's one thing I'm worried about with this project, it's Sam's lyrics. He's a great singer and performer, but he has a tendency to rely on cliches. From the album listing:

    01. Avenida Revolution
    02. Soap on a Rope
    03. Sexy Little Thing (Wasn't this a DRL song?)
    04. Oh Yeah
    05. Runnin' Out (Runnin' w/the Devil)
    06. Get It Up (Get Up)
    07. Down the Drain
    08. My Kinda Girl
    09. Learning to Fall (Learning to See)
    10. Turnin' Left
    11. Future in the Past

    Hmm. Re-hashing ideas or coincidence?

    When I saw "Down the Drain," my mind immediately lept to "Somebody Get Me a Doctor." That being said, though, there are only so many rock cliches...and when you have a catalog that spans three decades, you're bound to rehash some stuff along the way.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I guess not that it matters one single fuck-hair, I felt the same way when i saw the titles.

    "Avenida Revolution" is a great title, but the rest are quite commonplace types of ideas that won't really stick in the mind.

    I was hoping for a little more originality but it's not that great a deal. Cool titles for songs are pretty rare, and very few bands are much good at it, much less rock bands.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    who cares? from what the first two tracks we've heard sound like, it seems like good time rock with lots of energy. I am so pumped. I haven't been this psyched about a new album in freakin' years. A couple of decades maybe.

    I think people put to much into the Zep stuff. I don't think this band is trying to push a cultural revolution and times are much different.

    These guys are looking to score with a new version of 80's guitar driven, top down, margarita drinkin, doobie smokin, line snort'n, x poppin, glue huffin, party rock and roll.

    Sorry bro, but so far you only listed 3 coincidences. I don't know if that's enough to say Sam is re-hashing anything.

    I was more keen on the title, "Elbow Farts" for the Intro track.

    I guess that is why I'm commenting on Internet forums instead of writing Gold records.

    Making those connections is more than a stretch. I love the title Future is in the past. Without hearing the song yet, the title alone to me says that the "past" is a track record that should not be ignored. That the past is a predictor for the future. It is the opposite concept of the old saying " Live in the past you die in the past" !

    Sexy Little Thing was never a David Lee Roth song. I'm not seeing Down the Drain tied in with SGMAD either (yes those three words are in the song, but if we nitpicked Sam could never write a song titled "Hit the Ground" or something). Let's give it a rest and wait until the damned album comes out before we criticize anything, shall we?

    Soap On A Rope is one of the dumbest song titles I've heard. Chickenfoot is one of the dumbest band names I've ever heard. But damned if both haven't delivered and kicked me in the ass so far
    "I respect that youre passionate about this but what your saying is complete idiocy..." - MF5150 on McDonald's "preying" on young kids.

    "He was born a human, he's a horse's ass by proxy." - It's Mike on Eddymon.
