Title help needed!

We're in a title crisis for my YA romance from HarperCollins. We need a fun, hip, extremely happenin' title, and we can't come up with anything! Here's the down-low: the heroine (Lily) is a classical pianist and she's had it with having no life other than piano (which all the other kids think is a total loser thing to be doing), so she drops piano and gets in with this band playing keyboards. Of course, there's a way hot drummer who she starts to bond with. Too bad he has a girlfriend and thinks she has a boyfriend....

My editor would love to have the title that has something do with music, but I haven't come up with anything decent. Any suggestions?

Teen Beat

But wait, is that a teen mag? Wonder if you can title a book the same as a mag....dunno.

Cute concept, though. I'll be back if something comes to me.

Ooo--good ideas! And titles can't be copyrighted, so you can use a song title or a book title etc. I'm going to send these off to my editor. Yay! If your title gets picked, you'll get an aknowledgement in my book!! Thanks!!!
