Comments & Submittor Name
|Iron Maiden||The Prisoner||The word "prisoner" is mentioned several times throughout the song. However, even though the word "prisoner" is preceded by "the" in the title, in the song it is preceded by "a." - Isac|
|The Righteous Brothers||Soul And Inspiration||The Brothers add two words, making the first line in the chorus "You're my soul and my heart's inspiration." The Words "soul and inspiration" are never sang together - Odie Garfield|
|Led Zeppelin||Living Loving Maid (She's Just A Woman)||The band members omit the word "maid" from the title. However, they do mention the subtitle. - Isac|
|Leonard Cohen||The Stranger Song||From the film "McCabe And Mrs. Miller", the song does not mention a stranger or song. - Man With The Deep Voice|
|The Decemberists||Summersong||I don't think "summersong" is in the song as one or two words. - Opie M.|
|Genesis||Man On The Corner||Phil Collins inserts the word "there" into the title. Instead of "Man ON the corner" he says "Man THERE on the corner." - Isac|
|Harry Nilsson||Remember Christmas||Harry says "Remember 'this and that,'" but there is no mention of the word Christmas anywhere in the song. |
The song has nothing to do with Christmas, and, I might add, it's a sad song. - Isac
|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|

|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|
