Song Names -> Song Titles Not Used as Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Some songs have titles that aren't used in the lyrics, and end up becoming better known for their lyrics than their title. Bob Dylan's "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" is better known for the refrain "Everybody must get stoned" than it is for the title.

Comments & Submittor Name
Coldplay Parachutes Chris Martin doesn't say the word "Parachutes" in any of the lyrics, but he says "always, always". - JohnHowarth
Cardi B Bodak Yellow She doesn't say "bodak yellow" in any of the lyrics. Instead, the song's title was inspired by Florida-based rapper Kodak Black and his 2014 song "No Flockin". - John Howarth
The Carpenters Bless The Beasts And Children Okay, this may sound like nitpicking, but on every version of this song, another "the" is placed before "children", making the title different. - Sheila Oh
Traditional America, The Beautiful Although it does mention America near the end and has the lyric "Oh Beautiful, for spacious skies", they are not sung together with " the". - Floyd DeBarber
Duran Duran The Chauffeur There is no reference to a chauffeur anywhere in the song. - Brit Boxx
The Chainsmokers Roses The word "Roses" isn't said in any of the lyrics, but instead references its guest vocalist, Philadelphia songstress Rozes. - John Howarth
Modern English I Melt With You The group sings "I'll stop the world and melt with you", but the correct title does not appear. - Brit Boxx
Childish Gambino Redbone He doesn't say the word "redbone" in any of the lyrics, but he does sing this in the chorus: "Stay woke / n****s creepin'". - Ariana Grande mocha swirl
5 Seconds of Summer Try Hard They do sing "try" and "hard" in the same phrase, but not together. The line goes "And she makes me feel, makes me feel / Like I try, like I try, like i'm trying too hard again". - Ariana Grande mocha swirl
Relient K Elephant Parade What's actually sung is, "Hip hip hooray for the elephants *ON* parade." - Jonathan S.
Logic 1-800-273-8255 This is the number for the National Suicide Prevention Hotline, and it's mentioned nowhere in the lyrics. - Ariana Grande mocha swirl
Diana Ross Love Hangover These two words are not sung consecutively, believe it or not. - Aretha Franklin Ajaye
Cheap Trick Hummer there is a 'hmm hmm' in the lyrics but that's it. The content has nothing to do with hummingbirds, the vehicle or that vulgar sexual slang word either. - Get Your Mind Out Of the Gutter
Abney Park Whole Life Crisis I may not live in mansions I may not live life grand But I live life to the fullest And that's all I have planned - Jonathan S.
Nirvana Tourette's This title, which refers to a mental disorder where someone stands up and swears a blue steak (among other traits) is not used in the song. In fact, on the lyric sheet all that's listed is, "Cufk", "Tish" and "Sips". You do the math. - Sailor Sam
Carly Rae Jepsen I Really Like You The word "really" isn't repeated zero times. It's repeated 6 times each. - John Howarth
LMFAO Party Rock Anthem The word "Party rock" is used as a lyric, but not the word "anthem" - JohnHowarth
Tom Petty Mary Jane's Last Dance People mistakenly identify this song as "Last Dance With Mary Jane", since those lyrics are actually in it. - Opie M.
Niall Horan This Town The only time "this" and "town" are used in the same phrase is in the line "It's funny how things never change in this old town". The words "Everything comes back to you" are used much more frequently. - Ariana Grande mocha swirl
Walter Egan Magnet And Steel He never sings these words consecutively, instead singing "For you are a magnet, and I am steel." - Opie M.
