Song titles can provide a quick tease of what’s to come in the lyrics, but they can also open the door to extreme interpretation.
Twitter users created the #MakeASongTitleLonger game Friday, providing an online playground for creative minds to turn a short song title into something that fits within 140 characters — Adele’s “Hello” became a full-on phone conversation, “Hello? Hello? Hello? Who is this? David is that you? Hello? I’m hanging up now, hello?” (On Tuesday, #MakeASongClean was trending on Twitter.)
Everything from Outcast’s “Hey Ya” (add as many a’s to ya as Twitter allows), to Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar on Me” (as well as their coffee), and Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” (until it doesn’t) make the list.
