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
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
Cerrone Love In C Minor While an enormously influential recording, the only lyric is "Love me". - Rich "Sully" Connelly

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
