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
|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.|
|Enya||The Loxian Gate||The song is in Loxian, a language created by Enya, and the title does not appear in the translated version. However, it does make reference to "the gates of night". - Julian|
|Enya||Dark Sky Island||The closest lyric from this song is "In the darkness of the sky above", and the word "island" is nowhere in the song. However, it does refer to an actual "dark-sky preserve" on the island of Sark. - Julian|
|Enya||The Humming||Although the title is not in the lyrics, humming IS part of the song. - Julian|
|Enya||The River Sings||The words of this song are entirely in Celtic, and almost impossible to make out. However, one of the lines translates as "The river sings the endlessness". - Julian|
|Enya||Pax Deorum||These lyrics (Celtic for "peace of the gods") are nowhere in the song, but they fit with its overall theme. - Julian|
|Enya||The Celts||The entire song is in Celtic, and the lyric which sounds like the title is "saol no saol", meaning "life of lives". - Julian|
|Enya||The Spirit of Christmas Past||If I didn't know he title, I would have thought it is "Tomorrow will be Christmas Day". - Julian|
|Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats||Wasting Time||He sings "What a waste of time", but that's as close as it gets. - Opie M.|
