Music Trivia -> Same Title, Different Song -> Close To You

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.

"Close To You"

The following are all the different songs that are titled "Close To You". Check out the index for more examples of songs that have Same Title, but a Different Song.

Close to you I will always stay
Close to you, though you're far away.

She was A Jezebel, this Brixton queen
Livin’ the life like a back street dream

Editor's note: The Carpenters will NOT be added because the full title of their song is "(They Long To Be) Close To You." (Yes, words in parentheses DO count as part of the title, so the Carpenters would not be an exact match.)
