Comments & Submittor Name
|Muse||Bliss||The lyric is "Give me all the peace and joy in your mind, I want the peace and joy in your mind, give me the peace and joy in your mind" Why the title isn't "Peace" instead of "Bliss"? - Nurul|
|Muse||Uno||I thought it was a song with Spanish language, but it's not. The lyric is "You could've been number one". Why the title isn't "One" instead of "Uno" if it doesn't contain any word in Spanish language? - Nurul|
|Muse||Hyper Music||The most famous lyric is "You know that I don't want you and I never did, I don't love you and I never will" - Nurul|
|Muse||Muscle Museum||"I don't want you to adore me, don't want you to ignore me, when it pleases you" I thought the title was "Ignore" but when I searched for the title I only found Paramore song - Nurul|
|Muse||Sunburn||Chorus : She burns like the sun, and I can't look away, and she'll burn our horizon make no mistake - Nurul|
|Muse||Hysteria||I want it now, I want it now - Nurul|
|Grass Roots||Let's Live For Today||The band members omit the word "let's" from the lyrics. During the choruses, they say "Sha-la-la-la-la-la, live for today." - Isac|
|Anberlin||The Resistance||Nowhere does the singer state "the resistance." The title had my bandmate and I baffled until, today, he suggested "(The singer's) talking about a riot, that's sort of resistance. - Jack|
|Radiohead||Bodysnatchers||The chorus has the line "I'm trapped in the body and can't get out" but that's as close as it gets. - Hawk|
|Radiohead||High And Dry||Not every word in the title is in the song. Which word is missing? "And". - Brian Kelly|
|Gaslight Anthem||45||Nowhere in the chorus, does the singer state "45" I even checked the official lyrics - Jack|
|Linkin Park||Jornada del Muerto||All in foreign language, not English. English translation doesn't contain song title either - Jack|
|Eagles||The Last Resort||She came from Providence the one in Rhode Island - Phil Vinci|
|Emery||Churches And Serial Killers||There is a part of me that always sees the easy way out (Is this the easy way?)|
If it doesn't hurt, then not another word (then take me back inside...)
You keep the reasons all but hidden, it feels like we will drown (is this is where we were...)
Do I hold on, when it's so far gone?
- Jonathan S.
|10cc||Dreadlock Holiday||I don't like reggae, I love it - DonaldG|
|Fall Out Boy||(Coffee's For Closers)||I will never believe in anything again|
I will never believe in anything again
Change will come, oh, change will come
I will never believe in anything again

|Jefferson Starship||Things to Come||The line "I'll be your lifeline" repeated four times. No mention of the title anywhere in the lyrics, though. - Sutch|

|Oasis||Shakermaker||shake along with me. - Simone|
|The 88||At Least It Was Here||I can't count the reasons I should stay./One by one, they all just fade away. (Note: Theme song from "Community".) - Brian Kelly|
