Marion Choosing a song title, opinions wanted (15) Choosing a song title, opinions wanted 20 Mar 08

Hello folks. As discussed in my recent thread "Tips for getting airplay on folk radio", I'm working on getting one of my songs recorded and into circulation. However, I'm having a little difficulty settling on a title for it, so I'm interested in your votes.

The song is a witty synopsis of the plot of Anne of Green Gables, and the tunes is the standard fiddle tune Ste. Anne's Reel.

The titles I'm considering are:
1. Ste. Anne's Reel (With An E)
2. Ste. Anne-With-An-E's Reel
3. Anne of Three Minutes

The first two would be a play on the connection between the story and tune, and would reference the fact that Anne was adamant about having her name spelled with an E.

The third option would be a reference to the sequel novels (Anne of the Island, Anne of Windy Poplars, Anne of Avonlea etc.), and might be better in light of the fact that not everybody will recognize Ste. Anne's Reel and understand the word play.

Thanks, Marion
