So you'd think that after so many years, I'd know better than to turn to The Pit for this, but OH WELL, getting kinda desperate.

Basically, I'm writing some music (instrumental) and it just has an awful shitty title right now and I can't seem to come up with a better one...it's been a couple of months. I need to nail it down before Monday.

Description to help you help me:

The basic concept is love. There is a masculine and feminine theme, with a common thread that's interwoven into both themes, suggesting something "magical" like a sense of fate or the universal forces keeping these two together. Cheesy, I know, but at least there won't be words to amplify the cheese.

What I don't want and can't seem to avoid is using stupid cliche words like Fate for the title. Give me something that's way cooler.

inb4 Chopin Is Da Best <3, Gundams are Sex, That SUV Was A Good Purchase Decision, etc etc

...modes and scales are still useless.

Not sure what you mean, but it's just a concept I thought up. It's not based on any books or anything.

I immediately thought of something involving yin/yang and taoism. So now I can't think of anything that doesn't sound stereotypically asian.

-Eros and Psyche

Their story is sort of like what you're going for, I guess.

One thing I've done for a couple songs with crap titles is just put it in another language, keeps the ideas without too much change but sounds alot better then words that are used all the time.

And perhaps a phrase instead of just one word might help

Synonyms for Soon: anon, any minute now, before long, betimes, by and by, coming down the pike, directly, early, ere long, expeditiously, fast, fleetly, forthwith, hastily, in a little while, in a minute, in a second, in a short time, in due time, in short order, in time, instantly, lickety-split, on time, posthaste, presently, promptly, pronto, quick, quickly, rapidly, short, shortly, speedily.

Well, I think the heart of the problem is that "Soon" is just too short of a title. Replacing it with a synonym wouldn't really improve the situation. And really, that's just what I was thinking at the time, but it really doesn't have to specifically be about being together soon.

I kinda liked it for the word play with the strings orchestration but FINE

kinda gay, but it easily can have meaning. It's a cheesy way of saying "I'm falling for you."

Not sure if too much cheese but the only thing I can think of is:

Well I saying a synonym and include it in a phrase. Can't think of anything else though really, I've always been horrible with titles, sorry.

You could always go with a foreign language title. Something in French or Italian maybe? Or German, seeing as you love Bach.

So in this 'story' do they ever end up meeting or are they destined to be together, yet never actually meet?

To my shame, I had to google it, but that was excellent. Definitely this. No one will bother to look it up, and if they ask, tell them its untranslatable.

That's a good question. I think they will be together at the end, but there is a bit of struggle in the middle.

Actually, yeah, that's pretty sweet.

Or perhaps just shorten it to "Perfect Coalescence", or just "Coalescence".

That's a nice sounding word.

Coalescence...

Yea exactly. The only part I'm not crazy about is "Perfect". It's a little too absolute.
