Subject: Songs involve actual singing.

I mean, as far as my understanding goes, that's the case in classical music - you don't call a cello concerto a song if there aren't any human voices involved. I've definitely called classical pieces songs before, but now that I'm really getting into classical music, I understand why hearing that makes any serious music nerd bristle. Which is not to say that it's some horrible unforgivable social faux pas to make, but hey. We live to learn, right? (Which very much includes me, because again, I've made this same mistake.)
