Over 150 Cliches and Expressions You Can Use As Song Titles, First Lines and Hooks
Even though there have been some great songs written using cliches and expressions you should probably stay away from them in song titles unless you have a killer idea or the song simply demands it. They've either been used or will be used at some point.
However, they are great for first lines to songs as they set the stage for everything to come and many times can simply get you rolling. Whether you leave them or not depends on the "finished" song itself.
They can also serve as great hooks although many times hooks become song titles.
So don't dismiss them altogether, but be aware. Also try to think outside of the box and change up an old cliche into something new and unexpected.
