    Why Do Musicians Ask So Many Questions?

    So many questionable titles in popular music.

    Questions like:

    * How many roads must a man walk down?
    * What if God was one of us?
    * Who let the dogs out?
    * Why does the stars go on shining?
    * Why do the sea rush to shore?
    * Will you still need me when I'm 64?
    * Why do fools fall in love?

    Are there composers that have answers to any of these vexing questions?

    Or are there only more questions?

    the only answer I can think of is:

    "O Freunde, nicht diese Töne!
    Sondern laßt uns angenehmere anstimmen
    und freudenvollere!"

    "Why are you asking us?"
    "Where is my blunderbuss?"
    "When will the cows come home?"
    "What is this, some sort of 'pome'?"
    "Who is the master who makes the grass green?"
    The answer my friend is nowhere to be seen.

    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    * How many roads must a man walk down?.. 2001 a space odyssey.
    * What if God was one of us?.. It's just a Fantasy.
    * Who let the dogs out?.. Little Saint Nick.
    * Why does the stars go on shining?.. The Night has a thousand eyes.
    * Why do the sea rush to shore?.. Ebbtide!
    * Will you still need me when I'm 64?.. Chances Are.
    * Why do fools fall in love?.. I didn't know what time it was.

    MIA could mean 'missing in action' or it could be an amusement park in Michigan called Michigan's Adventure. I prefer the amusement park over missing in action.
