Default Re: Songs that were Named After their Sound or Composition or Arrangement or Time Signature

Epistrophy by Thelonious Monk.

An epistrophe is repetition of the same word(s) at the end of successive phrases, clauses or sentences.

The tune was named so because is uses an "epistrophe" of notes in the melody.
