This has been a small annoyance of mine for awhile, and it is the difference in how people name songs when typed or written. For example, I say...

Foo Fighters - "Everlong."

While other people may say...

Everlong - Foo Fighters.

Or...

"Everlong" by the Foo Fighters.

And so on and so forth.

Well, I wanted to make a poll to see how many people here in the pit write theirs out. Call me ignorant, but I prefer my way ^_^.

I looked through different topics here (mainly "What Are You Listening To Right Now") (which SHOULD have a "?" at the end) in our beloved Pit to see how different people said them. I just wish there was a uniform way, because if I don't know the artist or the song someone's talking about, I have no idea which is which, hah.

Anyway, go.

I always say Foo Fighters - Everlong

I dunno, it just seems better to have the artist first

Band - song
Quote by frankv
Tokio Hotel is probably the worst thing Germany has produced since WW2.

It doesn't matter. Anyone who cares to read it should know that the Foo Fighters is a band and should thus deduce that the other word, Everlong, is the song.
Megadeth > Metallica
Gibson > Fender
Randy Rhoads > Everybody

Maybe you should turn of the useless columns.
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

"Song" - Artist

A lot of the time, I remember the song title but not the artist, so I tend to list it first because it's the most important bit to me.

are you stupid or you need some attention ?


Well obviously you can't be too bright since you made a topic for... let's see... getting popular? Wow. Seems like my topic has a bit more purpose than asking how to change yourself into something fake in an attempt to seek... you guessed it... attention.



Have a nice day, my hypocritical friend.
