Song Names -> Song Titles Not Used as Lyrics -> D

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
Dan Hartman Vertigo/Relight My Fire the word "vertigo" isn't there. - mads.
The Dandy Warhols Not If You Were The Last Junkie On Earth I never thought you'd be a junkie because heroin is so passe. - Brian Kelly
The Darlin' Buds Poppy's Spell Obscure song by the British pop rock band of the 90s. Its most famous lyrics are "Deep, deep down inside...I wanna do it again." - British Bullcrap
Dave Matthews Band Song That Jane Likes Dave's sister Jane liked the song. Not in the lyrics - ctharris
Dave Matthews Band #41 Just the 41st song they wrote. - ctharris
David Bowie Space Oddity "Ground control to Major Tom…" - crazydon
David Bowie Ziggy Stardust David says "Ziggy" six times in the song, which is six times more than he says "Stardust" - Alan of Seville
David Cook Bar-Ba-Sol This song was largely based on a previous version written by an Atlanta-based band named Injected. I believe that it was formerly known as "Spun Again" which is part of the lyrics. ("I've been sold and spun again.") I can't say why DC chose to call it "Bar-ba-sol" but someone out there probably has the answer. - Cluny Brown
David Seville & Chipmunks Chipmunk Song "Chipmunk Christmas Song" - One a plane loops a loop I still want a hula hoop - Barbara Siegel
A Day To Remember If It Means A Lot To You La, la la la, la la la
Till everyone is singing.
La, la la la, la la la

If you can wait till I get home
Then I swear to you that we can make this last
(La la la)
If you can wait till I get home
Then I swear come tomorrow, this will all be in our past
Well, it might be for the best - Jonathan S.
A Day To Remember You Be Tails, I'll Be Sonic I still wish you the best of luck, baby
And don't go thinking that this was a waste of time
I couldn't forget you if I tried
You killed what was left of the good in me
I'm tired, so let me be broken
Look down at the mess that's in front of me
No other words need be spoken
And I've got nobody else to blame though I tried
Kept all of my past mistakes held inside
I'll live with regret for my whole life - Jonathan S.
Days Of The New Touch, Peel and Stand Okay, the words appear at different times, but never together, as the title would suggest. "Time On My Hands" or "The One To Abuse" would have been better titles. - newrock
The Decemberists Summersong I don't think "summersong" is in the song as one or two words. - Opie M.
Deep Forest Deep Forest No english lyrics. - MADS
Deep Forest Pacifique  There are no real lyrics, just chanting. - Mads
Deep Forest Sweet Lullaby The song isn't in English, like the title. - Mads
Deep Forest Martha's Song It's just called that because the singer's name is Martha. - Mads
Deftones Change (In The House Of Flies) The parenthetical part of that title is not anywhere in the lyrics. - Opie M.
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
Depeche Mode I Sometimes Wish I Was Dead New sound all around, you can hear it too / Aah - JohnHowarth
Diana Ross Love Hangover These two words are not sung consecutively, believe it or not. - Aretha Franklin Ajaye
Digimon Frontier Blader the title should've been "he's blade", i think. - mads.
Dinosaur Jr Start Choppin' I ain't telling you a secret./I ain't telling you goodbye. - Brian Kelly
Dionne Warwick Valley Of The Dolls Despite the song being the theme to the movie of the same name, the title isn't included within the lyrics (which were written by Dory and Andre Previn, not Burt Bacharach). - MOR
Disclosure F For You Well, it gets close to mentioning it because the refrain is "Because I played the fool for you", but it isn't obvious that the F in the title stands for Fool. - Crafthead
The Divinyls Siren No sirens mentioned in the song, but the parenthetical title "never let you go" is said. - JohnHowarth
Doja Cat Agora Hills The lyrics have nothing to do with hills. - JohnHowarth
Dolores O'Riordan The Journey This is your life. This is your moment. This is your time. This is your moment. - Brian Kelly
Don Henley A Month Of Sundays You never hear the title once in the song, but you can feel the metaphorical theme in the lyrics. It's almost like a story written like a song. - Larcen Tyler
Donovan Colours The world "color" is in the song but never as a plural. ("Yellow is the color of my true love's hair... Blue's the color of the sky... Green is the color of the sparkling pond...") - KL Fan
Donovan Breezes of Patchulie Originally to be named "Darkness of my Night"...and that was used in the lyrics! - Paul Warren
Donovan Epistle to Dippy Why it was called 'Epistle to Dippy' is way beyond me. - Paul Warren
Donovan Poor Cow Originally titled "Poor Love", this was the theme for the movie of the same name. The song originally included a Lord of the Rings reference. "Oh I did dwell in the northern part of the country, Faramir far from here". - KL Fan
Donovan Celeste I think the only reason why the song is called 'Celeste' is because of the Celeste solo which is harmonized with a harpsichord. - Paul Warren
Donovan Sunshine Superman Opening line is "Sunshine came softly through my window today". And other verses open with the word "Superman". But the two words never come together anywhere in the lyrics to create the title phrase "Sunshine Superman". - Melissa Conway
The Doobie Brothers Long Train Running Although the words "long trains run" appear in the lyrics, the title does not; this song should have the title "Without Love (Where Would You Be Now)" since it is the most-repeated line in the chorus! - crazydon
The Doors Peace Frog 'Blood in the streets, its up to my knee Blood in the streets in the town of chicago Blood on the rise, its following me' An excellent song. - Rebecca
Dora the Explorer Travel Song Come on vamonos, everybody let's go, come on, let's get to it, I know that we can do it - JohnHowarth
Dr. John Right Place, Wrong time "I was in the right place...but it must have been the wrong time." - Rich "Sully" Connelly
Dragonforce E.P.M. "E.P.M." is rumored to stand for "Extreme Power Metal", which is DragonForce's genre. Still yet, the song never mentions this. - Anonymous
Drake Passionfruit Passionate from miles away - JohnHowarth
Drake Jimmy Cooks No mentioning of Jimmy anywhere in the song. Plus, the title is a reference to Drake's character "Jimmy Brooks". However, a reference to cooking is said in "I'm cooking up ambition on a kitchen stove". - JohnHowarth
Drake & Giveon Chicago Freestyle  While Chicago is rather obviously alluded to as "Windy City", the song doesn't explicitly mention the word "Chicago". There's also no mention of freestyle. - JohnHowarth
Drist Arterial Black Along the way we learn things too hard
Whisper out the way to stop my heart - Jonathan S.
Duran Duran The Chauffeur There is no reference to a chauffeur anywhere in the song. - Brit Boxx
