abbreviating song titles.

I have done this but I'm realising how annoying it is! Instead of writing "until the end of the world" people write UTEOTW etc! Sometimes they don't even say what album they are talking about so you have to work out what song they are talking about. most of the time i can't be bothered!

Abbreviating "UTEOTW", "ISHFWILF, "SYCMIOYO" etc is ok, in my opinion. But people who abbreviate Miracle Drug are just lazy...

If its possible to say "City" instead of COBL or "Wild Horses", etc then I prefer that. It just takes me too darn long to figure them out most of the time.

U2 need to release an album with song titles like "ISHFWILF" and "COBL" and "WGRYWH"...just to screw everybody up.
