Song Prequels: Today's Twitter Trendlet

Sweeping the Twitterverse this week: The #songprequels meme. How it works: Pick your favorite song and imagine what its title would be if it had been written a few hours earlier. For example, "Don't Stop Believin'" becomes "Start Believin','" "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" becomes "Walking Nervously Up To Heaven's Door," and so on.

Of course, some riffs on the theme are better than others. Check out some of the best below, and add your own in the comments section.
