Music Trivia -> Same Title, Different Song -> Breakaway (1 word)

There's only so many unique two word or three word titles that can be invented before groups begin to recycle titles. There's nothing wrong with that of course, but it can be confusing if you're trying to sort out what song is a cover of another song. This section lists songs with identical titles, but different lyrics. To help us keep track of which songs are which, the first two lines of each unique song are listed.

"Breakaway (1 word)"

The following are all the different songs that are titled "Breakaway (1 word)". Check out the index for more examples of songs that have Same Title, but a Different Song.

I gotta break away
Cause no one out there listens to a single word I say
Submitted by: Joe
All my life I wanted to fly
Like the birds that you see way up in the sky
Submitted by: PJ
For too long she was feeling
That her love had lost it meaning
Submitted by: nally
I've made my reservation,
I'm leaving town tomorrow
(Hyphenated as "Break-A-Way"; redone by Tracey Ullman as "Breakaway".)
Submitted by: Indy Gent
(scat singing for two lines)
Grew up in a small town
And when the rain would fall down
I'd just stare out my window.
[Editor's note: Because the title is shown as a single word, that fact needs to be noted in the title so that the "Break Away" titles don't override the "Breakaway" titles.]

I got a 20 pound ball hanging by a chain around my neck
I got to get away
