    Rename the title

    Thought it might be a fun thing to do; to rename titles of books, movies, songs or short stories simply because we all take away so many different experiences from the content. Name the original title, and your revised one.

    Oh, and it would be (at least I think so) more fun if people came up with lots of alternative titles, but it doesn't necessarily have to follow a specific order.

    I'll start;

    'Lord Of The Rings' - 'Frodo's Quest'

    But somehow I don't think Where Angels Fear to Tread would work as A Tuscan Carol...
