Share your juvenilia

Just looking through some of the lyrics, writing and such that I did when I was 13-16 (and maybe later, shamefully) and figured I have to share it because it’s that bad.

Perhaps the most shameful example is my word file full of song names. Not lyrics, names. I presumed I’d go on release dozens of albums (despite having no musical abilities), so I was stockpiling names that I thought would make funny, thought-provoking or profound track titles.

I’ve shared some of these before but have found loads of new ones and I hope that sharing them will relieve me of some of the shame. I suggest you do the same.

Song titles: (I’ll split them into groups so you can imagine them being released as albums)

I used to be indecisive, but now I’m not so sure

The best thing is I can totally imagine these albums, can picture the cover art and everything. The second & third ones are the best, and the last one’s the worst, probably a bit poor but still ok really.
