|Ringo||The NO NO Song||Naturally, he never says anything along the lines of, you know "Here's The NoNo song". - Rich Sully Connelly|
|Maxine Nightingale||Right Back Where We Started From||Maxine inserts the word "to" into the title. So instead of "Right back WHERE we started from," she says "Right back TO where we started from." - Isac|
|Cerrone||Love In C Minor||While an enormously influential recording, the only lyric is "Love me". - Rich "Sully" Connelly|
|Fun Lovin' Criminals||Love Unlimited||Barry White saved my life. And if Barry White saved your life, and got you back with your ex-wife. - Tommy|
|Deftones||Digital Bath||"Tonight, I feel like more." - Danny Hates Dubstep|
|Deftones||Elite||"When you're ripe, you'll bleed out of control. You'll bleed out of control." - Danny Hates Dubstep|
|Knife Party||Internet Friends||"You blocked me on Facebook. And now you're going to die..." - Crafthead|
|Showtek||90s By Nature (feat. MC Ambush)||Fun fact: it samples their earlier track "Laa Di F**king Daa" (from 2009), specifically the line "to get hit with the motherf**king (hardstyle)". - Crafthead|
|Lou Christie||Lightning Strikes||They sing "That's lightning striking again"--not "Lightning Strikes".485 - Rich "Sully" Connelly|
|Sponge||Molly (16 Candles)||Obviously refers to the movie "16 Candles" and its stsr Molly Ringwald. But Molly's name is nowhere in the lyrics. - Opie M.|
|Bruno Mars||The Lazy Song||The song should be entitled "Today I Don't Feel Like Doing Anything" because those lyrics are prominent throughout the song, but there is no mention of the title anywhere in the song. - Isac|
|Static -X||I'm With Stupid (He's A Loser)||It only says "he's a loser", stupid, and I've - SpiderSkull98|
|The Smashing Pumpkins||Pug||"pug" is not said anywhere in the song. - Steve|
|The Smashing Pumpkins||Eye||The word "eye" is never used in the song. The same sounding word "I" however, is frequently used. - Steve|
|Iron Maiden||Dance of Death||'Dance of the dead' is said once. 'Dance of death' is said 0 times. - Evan|
|Unit Four Plus Two||Concrete and Clay||They sing "The concrete and THE clay beneath my feet begin to crumble...But love will never die". - Rich "Sully" Connelly|
|America||Rainbow Song||The only mention of the word "rainbow" is in the lyric "I am asleep on a rainbow," but nowhere in the song is the word "rainbow" followed by the word "song." - Isac|
|Chad & Jeremy||A Summer Song||"soft....kisses on a summer day" Naturally, they never say anything along the lines of, you know, "Here's a summer song".And, not for nothing...if you'll forgive an observation, anyone who dislikes this recording should seek help. - Rich Sully Connelly|
|The Stories||Brother Louie||"Louie, Louie, Louie, Louie.... Louie, Louie, Louie, Lou-eye" The song is obviously about a white male falling in love a black girl--who he introduces to his parents, and things don't go well. "Brother Louie" is never said, so the title is an ironic way of saying how much easier it would have been for Louie--if only he was black.Actually, a rather sad, sobering tune about bigotry. - Rich "Sully" Connelly|
|Gorillaz||5/4||"5/4" is the time signature used in the song, and not used in the lyrics. - Evan|
