What is you favourite title of a work of art?

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

Not the content just solely going off the title.

For me it's gotta be "Things Fall Apart"

im a sucker for the like, unabashedly lyrical and weirdly long titles of like 60s-70s science fiction

"and i awoke and found me here on the cold hill's side"
"time considered as a helix of semi-precious stones"
"we, in some strange power's employ, move on a rigorous line"
"the beast that shouted love at the heart of the world"
"the word for world is forest"
"flow my tears, the policeman said"

the book of questions / the book of margins / the book of dialogue / the book of shares / the book of resemblances / a foreigner carrying in the crook of his arm a tiny book / the little book of unsuspected subversion

no love for the book of disquiet?

off the top of my head:

within a budding grove / in the shadow of young girls in flower
put the music in its coffin
in watermelon sugar
the portland cement factory at monolith, ca
jawbone and the air rifle
under ben bulben
the trout quintet
they brought sadness
vain, erudite and stupid
a short history of decay

I think titles might be my favorite artform

this is just bc I've been playing a lot of dwarf fortress but I love that the full title of this deliriously complex city-building game is "Slaves to Armok: God of Blood Chapter II: Dwarf Fortress"

Yeah I didn't even think about how cool a title "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" is and how it relates to the material (though I haven't read the book). Until I thought of it I just literally thought of like sheep made of lightening

yeah actually the temptation to exist is probably the best of the lot

street of crocodiles also an all-timer for sure

blue of noon
the conspiracy against the human race
violence and the sacred

slip inside this house

the drowned giant, the atrocity exhibition
