Names for art pieces

I struggle with finding names for various art pieces. I was listening to the radio while driving a few weeks back, and it hit me... song names can be an inspiration for a piece or be just the right couple of words to reflect what I created.
Some interesting ones I see in my iTunes today:
East West
Sing your life
He Cried
A Swallow on my Neck
Cosmic Dancer
Tony the Pony
Ambitious Outsiders.

Not sure were this thought might go, but could work in some ways.
