Five songs that made journalism school (and gave many headlines)

In the world of music criticism and journalism often used a common trick: using discs phrases or titles of songs by a particular group to head the review articles or other. Slogan are phrases that have meaning by itself enough and usually give an interesting twist to the text above. That, of course, is the theory, because after practice just to prove something we already know all along: that it is very difficult to have original ideas.

Thus, there are songs that have become a topic in this holder articles. Today we remember four of them, with a fifth as a bonus that calls attention to the laughable. We talked recently and we cited the Byrds 'So You Want to Be a Rock'n'Roll Star' as one of his best known songs. Its juicy title has been used in the music press almost from the moment of departure of the song.

Nothing like more of a music journalist who metalinguistic: songs about music or music industry. So if you have a gilt band with pretensions and some impact, I could drop this as a starter. Today we would use with: The Vaccines, for example. The French Diabologum achieved with 'A Découvrir Absolument' fully refine their ideas and draw one of their most striking songs.

And in France and Spain the title has been expanded gradually since its small circle of critics who are passionate about them until more mainstream areas. Just to have a slogan with which to defend all those bands that are a hidden gem, not receiving sufficient attention. Today we would use with: Kokoshca.

Absolutely. From hip-hop to singer-songwriters in peak periods or trouble getting public support. So broad is the spectrum of cases in which one of the most famous songs from Toyland. Today we would use to: Mr. Chinarro? Morrissey has always been an expert on leave in his songs seem easy to extract and decontextualise.

Therefore, choose one of many phrases in his career that have been used over and over again as a starter is very complicated. What has been used more? "Hang The DJ? "'There's a Light That Never Goes Out'? "'The Last of Famous International Playboys'? "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before? "Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want? Each of the discs of Smiths and solo Mozz himself has at least one sentence mythical music journalists.

Surely no one thought Pringles commercial hook which launched its no-potatoes are going to use, without too much shame in holding a number of musicals. At worst places we have ever fought, yes, but very little worse than this. Javier Alvarez came up to use as the title of one of his songs.
