I'm currently teaching a songwriting class with a bunch of literary arts students (traditional writers). The first thing we do is start coming up with ideas for titles. I used to keep a small tape recorder for snippets and title ideas. Now I just use my phone. Either way, when you see something interesting, have a thought about something, etc... write it down.
Experiment with putting words together. Try the William S Burroughs Cut-Up method. Take a bunch of song titles, type or write them out and then cut up the individual words. Throw it all on the floor and pick up random bits and place them together.
You might also want to look into either Clement Wood's Rhyming Dictionary or pick up Masterwriter (mac/win).
that's an interesting method for sure
