Me too sounding like a broken record, but I still think that keeping the exact same title as original is the most brilliant and craziest idea Al could ever come up with. I can see Al himself laughing at this sort of an in-joke for him and those who recognize Al only as the guy who changes the song titles into funny ones.
And again, I don't think WYL will be a lead single. Recording the first track doesn't necessarily mean the first one above the tracklist; it could mean just the frist track recorded for the album. But that's just what I think.

Check out this article from Rolling Stone:

http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/ ... ober_songs

It says,
In a study to be published in Psychology of Music, researchers Terry Pettijohn II and Donald F. Sacco Jr. present a novel economic indicator. "We conducted a study looking at Billboard Number One songs from 1955 to 2003," says Pettijohn. "When socioeconomic conditions were more challenging, the songs that had more meaningful themes and content were most popular."

skipping to the end of the list of examples...

"Whatever You Like," T.I. 2008

The music hasn't yet caught up to the economy's collapse: T.I.'s featherweight jam about jets, sex and Patrón ruled the charts at the end of 2008.

Interesting...

Did they seriously put TI's WYL in the same article as the words "meaningful themes and content"?

:blink: Does not compute... Does not compute...

EDIT: Removed unnecessary words from quote as I forgot it wouldn't copy original quotes.
English doesn't just borrow from other languages, it mugs them on the street and checks their pockets for loose grammar.

I guess they haven't heard the explicit version.
