What's in a Title?

Lately, for some unknown reason, titles have been difficult in making themselves known. It can be frustrating to whittle all your hard work down into a few words that are reflective of a story. Title trouble is nothing new for me. But it seems to be especially hard lately. Maybe it's that drive to have the perfect title. The one that can tell the reader a lot about the story in such a short span of time - sometimes only one word.

So tell me, what kind of titles do you like? Ones descriptive of the story as a whole, or ones that focus in on one key event in the story? Maybe even titles that have nothing to do with the story, but more the theme?
