I've made a big decision about the future of Popjustice, a website I started nearly twenty years ago. Not an easy decision, but one that's been coming for a while.
The madness has to stop. As of today I will be writing songtitles With Capital Letters Where They're Supposed To Be.
- Josef Salvat's new song is called modern anxiety. NO IT'S NOT.
- The new Pet Shop Boys song is called Burning the heather. NO IT'S NOT.
- Griff's new song is called Sound of Your Voice. NO IT'S NOT.
These songs are called Modern Anxiety, Burning The Heather and Sound Of Your Voice.
I feel quite bad about the Pet Shop Boys one because they've dedicated their entire careers to writing their songtitles as sentences but I can't have one rule for one popstar and another rule for others.
I have not yet made a decision on whether RAYE is Raye, ZAYN is Zayn and so on — I'm slightly sympathetic to the idea that an artist's name is kind of sacred. But frankly I'm not that sympathetic. I feel a decision brewing and it might well cause WIDESPREAD OUTRAGE. (Or Widespread outrage.) (Or widespread outrage.)
PS: Yes songtitles is one word, just like popstar.
PPS: And yes it's PS not P.S..
