<<Well, I'm not a native speaker but I think "nightlife" *is* a "single 
word". I found it at least in all dictionaries and thesauruses I looked through...>>

I did not mean to suggest or imply that "nightlife" does not exist as a 
single word. I was simply pointing out that it is derived of two separate and 
distinct words which have, over time, been melded together onto one. Regardless of 
its "singleness," it's basically a "two-word word." The same goes for 
"popart," except that the capitol A (PopArt), if it really stays this way, would be a 
clear indication that two words are intended, even though they are written as 
one. So my basic point is that with such titles as Nightlife and PopArt, the 
PSB are creatively "suggesting" two words.
