    Next song title might be a question. I'm about to make a basic video and wasn't sure if a question/song title should have a question mark. Know about this, or have an opinion?

    If the song title is a question, I would keep the question mark.

    Let me ask you this:

    A question mark is not something I have seen in a song title but I can't see why you would not include it in if the sing title is a question. :-)

    From an artistic standpoint? Sure. No reason not to include a question mark!

    From a technical standpoint? Eh... maybe not? Question marks are one of those special characters that may or may not be handled coherently by all computer systems that may incorporate your song. if the song gets any traction, it could result in some hassles with royalty payments or chart reporting etc. (Tho, all in all that's kind of a long shot of a thing to be worried about)

    After reading your question I actually looked into it more and there are lots of songs with a question mark. Check this link out 43 songs with questions in the title - Smooth

    Not to sound too obvious, but if it's a question, use a question mark, and if it's not, don't.
