But your post assumes that "song" is not proper and correspondingly that words can't change meaning.

It's not as though teens want to hear "song", it's just the word they know. I think far more than teens that use this word for any piece of music.

PL - Both observations above are valid. Words can (and do) change meaning - for better of worse. We can either roll with it - or try to fight it if we feel so inclined.
