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.

Song Title
Comments & Submittor Name
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

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
