    Default Song Name Abbreviations

    Okay. People are using so many now. I can't keep 'em straight. Can ya'll help me make a list so there's a place people can look for those brain fart days?

    I've had 3 hours of sleep in the last 36 hours, so I can only put together a couple... Usually I'm good at this.

    CGMHAY - Can't Get My Head Around You
    TKAA - The Kids Aren't Alright
    YGGFK - You're Gonna Go Far Kid
    KHWHD - Kick Him When He's Down
    SMTD - Spare Me The Details
    K,AYDO or Kristy - Kristy, Are You Doing Okay
    WDYGAJ - Why Don't You Get A Job
    FAAD - Forever And A Day
    IBALT - It'll Be A Long Time
    GGA - Gotta Get Away ----------------(I fail to see why this one needs abbreviating...)
    TWHE - The Worst Hangover Ever
    WHTY - What Happened To You?
    PFFAWG - (Pretty Fly) For A White Guy
    COAP - Come Out And Play
    D,ICA - Dammit, I Changed Again
    TILAM - Take It Like A Man
    SIMU (SIFU) - Stuff Is Messed Up (Shit Is Fucked Up)
    KTP - Kill The President

    Take out the commas. Their use in abbreviations is not pleasing to the eye.
    Go on now they won‘t tell
    Go on now and save yourself

    What the, I've never even seen half of those being used. A surprising number of those actually do get spelled out. But I usually see people just call "Kristy, Are You Doing Okay" "Kristy."

    "What Happened To You?" should be called "Ska" though :P

    yeah lol

    now it's more like a complicated game...we try to guess the first song, then we get to decide wich one we prefer and then we post another abreviated song and cross our fingers so the next person will have a hard time guessing that one LOOL

    i like it

    I think the policy should be to either use two of the first words or the first word if it makes sense, ie. "Pretty Fly" or "Kristy". Only when that makes no sense should you use an abbreviation. So for example, better to use "Dammit" than "D,ICA" which is just retarded.

    On the other, with some song titles this just doesn't work - "You're Gonna" sounds silly so better to use "YGGFK" and "Why Don't" is a little confusing so better to use WDYGAJ.

    Three name song titles, abbreviating those is just plain lazy. C'mon guys. On the other hand, Conspiracy of One is only three words and the abbreviation has stuck so CO1 it is..

    Just my take.
    and no wonder hearts and minds have been won
