I don't think you can call all vocal performance pieces songs, either. Fer instance, operatic arias, or Bach's cantatas. It would feel off.

Not to minimize song as an art form, mind you. The terminology has more to do with genre than anything else, as far as I can tell. Pop music can be just as demanding to perform as classical music, and the voice is an instrument that can be mastered like any other. Helps if the one you're born with is the equivalent of a Stradivarius, of course...

~Neshomeh is not a Stradivarius; misses singing masterworks anyway.
