Why is it "wholly unnecessary and irritating" in the title/lyric, when the A is included in the original poem that inspired the song?

As a line of poetry, mid-stanza and contextualised by what's around it, it works.

As a repeated pop song chorus and title, it sounds loose, weak and makes the song's title unmemorable.

The joy of subjective opinion, I suppose?
