Songs with Parentheses

I kind of miss songs with parentheses. That's all. Like "Don't You (Forget About Me)" and "(I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight". They had that certain flair. I mean, can you imagine how the world would be different today if The Cutting Crew had named their opus "Died In Your Arms Tonight"? It doesn't bear thinking about. I might even suggest the title would be improved if they added more parentheses thus: "(I Just) Died In Your Arms (Tonight)".

So, if you are one of these rockin and rollin types with a band and all, please think about including needless parentheses in your song titles.

Thank you.
