You are at a pivotal point in your novel where it would be truly amazing if only you could add just a line or two or three from a song.
The question is, can you?
I have read a lot about this and I definitely have come across a lot of conflicting answers. That in and of itself is frustrating with a capital F! In my quest for the answer, I came across some legitimate resources to share with all of you.

I have read in many places that you CAN use the title (and don't quote me on that, I am, after all, no lawyer) but I have seen this at least twenty times in my searches.
