Songs with Repeated Word TWICE in its Title During the Last 20 Years

Repeated words in a song can have its good effect for musicians as they can easily linger on ones mind. Many artists adapt it in their music and most of these hits became huge hits. During the last 20 years, here are some of those songs with repeated word twice in its title.

Black Eyed Peas- Boom Boom Pow
The song may have another word (pow) in the title but ‘boom’was mentioned twice. It was effective for the hip-hop group as at that time it was released, it was their longest number 1 hit (in Billboard Hot 100) for a staggering 12 weeks.

Hot Chelle Rae- Tonight, Tonight
The pop/rock group finally scored their first hit with “Tonight, Tonight” and it seems the formula of repeating ‘tonight’ in the song is effective. It went to top 10 in a number of official charts worldwide.

Maroon 5- Goodnight, Goodnight
Maroon 5 is saying ‘goodnight’and said it twice. The pop/rock song performed moderately in different charts.

Santana ft. The Product G&B- Maria, Maria
Santana incorporated different genres in his “Supernatural” album and this song was R&B influenced. Repeating the name “Maria” is effective as this song topped the US for several weeks.

M2M- Mirror, Mirror
This song sounds so sweet and innocent brought out by the sweet vocals from the duo. The first line of the chorus pertains to Snow White popular phrase “Mirror, Mirror on the Wall” which helped the song to enter charts especially in Asia where it is a number 1 hit there.

Naughty Boy ft. Sam Smith- La, La
This Naughty Boy and Sam Smith hit garnered millions of sales and hundreds of millions of views on YouTube due to its catchy tune and the repeated word ‘la, la’.

Among in this list, this song is the latest one. The collaboration from the three ladies eventually became a huge hit and mostly played in TV shows.

New Releases Review: Naughty Boy ft Beyonce & Arrow Benjamin, One Direction, Hailee Steinfield

Naughty Boy ft. Beyonce and Arrow Benjamin- Runnin’ (Lose it All)

After successful collaboration with Sam Smith, Naughty Boy worked with one of the biggest pop stars in the world, Beyonce. Arrow Benjamin was also featured in the song. It was Beyonce’s latest recording release after “7/11”. From hip-hop and R&B tune, this time she turned to this EDM track. This song, however, reminds me of her song “Haunted”. Her voice showed her prowess as well as Arrow Benjamin, who didn’t fail with his part. This song may possibly be a hit once it was released and may be a start of working relationship of Beyonce and Naughty Boy. Despite the strong performances of the artists, melody-wise, not as catchy as many hit EDM tracts.

One Direction- Infinity

After the huge success of “Drag Me Down” at the charts, One Direction finally released the follow-up for their upcoming LP they just named “Made in the A.M.”, which will be out ,as usual, on November. The song is a mid tempo ballad driven by synth and drums. The lyrics wa believed to be about former member Zayn Malik. The message is fine but it lacked more sincerity with the words. It’s just a short song to accommodate more words. The melody was good but not on par with “Story of My Life”. Many claimed, “Drag Me Down” was way bettef but I prefer this song.

Hailee Steinfield- Love Myself

After her notable appearance at the successful musical comedy film “Pitch Perfect 2”, Hailee Steinfield didn’t waste her talent and pursued musical career. When I watched the film, she has a good voice and possibly can carry the next “Pitch Perfect” movie. When I heard this I was like she should’ve done a better musical approach with a voice like that. The lyrics, was also believed as suggestive in social media which Hailee denied as it is about empowerment. Melodically, it is catchy but expected better from her. The song was already released more than a month ago but just catching up interest recently.
