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

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
Fair To Midland Dance of the Manatee Hang us those limbs, hold no virtue, Those told to hold, project on my cue, until we fall - Matt Barnett
Faith No More Epic What...is...it? Video is famous for the "fish out of water" scene at the end. - Bud Hoffman
Fall Out Boy Don't You Know Who I Think I Am? They say quitters never win
But we walk the plank on a sinking ship
There's a world outside of my front door
That gets off on being down - Jonathan S.
Fall Out Boy Our Lawyer Made Us Change The Name Of This Song So We Wouldn't Get Sued Just looked at the lyrics for this one; apparently, it repeats the line "we're all liars" a lot. Fall Out Boy has a habit of coming up with ridiculously long titles for their songs. I think next to none of 'em are actually mentioned in the songs, though. - Jonathan S.
Fall Out Boy Pavlove I'm the invisible man
Who can't stop staring at the mirror, at the mirror
I want to make you as lonely as me
So you can get, get addicted to this
You can get, get addicted to this now - Jonathan S.
Fall Out Boy Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner And I keep my jealousy close, 'Cause it's all mine. And if you say this makes you happy, Then i'm not the only one lying. - Katy
Fall Out Boy The Take Over, The Breaks Over Baby seasons change but people dont - Coolrick92
Fall Out Boy Sophomore Slump Or Comeback of the Year The best part of "believe" is the "lie" - Lizzie
Fall Out Boy (Coffee's For Closers) I will never believe in anything again
I will never believe in anything again
Change will come, oh, change will come
I will never believe in anything again

[Note: Those parentheses are not a misprint. That's the way the title is printed on the back cover of their album 'Folie a Deux'. - Jonathan S.
Fall Out Boy Champagne For My Real Friends, Real Pain For My Sham Friends Strike us like matches, cause everyone deserves the flames We only do it for the scars and stories, not the fame - Katy
Fall Out Boy A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More "Touch Me" I'm sleeping on your folk's porch again, dreaming
She said, she said, she said, "Why don't you just drop dead?"
I don't blame you for being you
But you can't blame me for hating it
So say, what are you waiting for?
Kiss her, kiss her
I set my clocks early 'cause I know I'm always late - Jonathan S.
Fatboy Slim The Rockafeller Skank Right about now, the funk soul brother. Check it out now, the funk soul brother. - Brian Kelly
Filter Captain Bligh I am a grieving man / I can't believe the things I've done to you / I am a guilty man / I can't believe the things I've done to you - Jonathan S.
Finger Eleven Paralyzer Close, but... The singer mentions that he's not "paralyzed", but it is assumed that the person he is singing about is the "paralyzer". Thus, no mention in the song. - rocky
Fitz & The Tantrums The Walker Oh, here we go
Feel it in my soul
Really mean it, mean it, so go
Gotta feed it - heart, it takes control
Really mean it, mean it - Jonathan S.
Fitz And The Tantrums 6AM It's 6 in the morning, I'm still awake
My sleepless heart is torn up, babe
A love song's on the radio,
But these words I hear – they're not for me, no.

[Note: It's true, "6AM" and "six in the morning" are the same thing, but the singer never uses the former (the song's official title), only the latter.] - Jonathan S.
Fitz And The Tantrums Spark Don't they know, the speaker is about to explode?
Don't they know, this building is about to blow?
This building is about to
Blow, oh oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh
Oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh - Jonathan S.
Five Finger Death Punch M.I.N.E (End This Way) M.I.N.E is supposed to be "mine", but only End This Way is mentioned instead - Spiderskull98
Five For Fighting Superman (It's Not Easy) Of all the songs that have "Superman" in the title, this is the only song that doesn't contain that word anywhere in the lyrics. - MOR
The Fleetwoods Come Softly To Me The title as a whole does not appear. There are several choruses of "Come softly, Darling" and "Come to me, sta-a-y". So naturally some listeners thought the title was "Come Softly, Darling". - MOR
Flight Of The Conchords Robots Would've made a lot more sense to call it "The Humans Are Dead" (repeated throughout the chorus) or "The Distant Future, The Year 2000" (repeated at the beginning of the track) - Jonathan S.
A Flock Of Seagulls Space Age Love Song I saw your eyes,
And you made me smile;
For a little while
I was falling in love. - British Bullcrap
For Squirrels Mighty K.C. This dedication to Kurt Cobain doesn't mention his initials, let alone his name. - Brian Kelly
Forever the Sickest Kids I Don't Know About You, But I Came to Dance Not really said anywhere, the better title would be the most repeated line "I'm a sucker for lovers". - Alex
The Format The First Single "So let’s make a list of who we need
It’s not much, if anything
Make a list of who we need
And we’ll throw it away
‘Cause we don’t need anyone." - Katy
The Format I'm Ready, I Am I'm trying to find truth in words, in rhymes, and notes
In all the things I wish I wrote 'cause
I feel like I've been losing you - Katy
Four Seasons Opus #17 Is this the call-and-response song to the Toy's 'Lovers Concerto'? - Paul Warren
Franz Ferdinand Auf Asche Despite its German title, the entire song is sung in English - Alan of Seville
The Fratellis Chelsea Dagger Known for being the theme of the Chicago Blackhawks. Oddly enough, the two halves of the name are mentioned separately in the song, but not together. It's kind of surprising this hasn't been posted yet. - Jonathan S.
Fratellis Baby Fratelli Alright, everybody says she's alright. - Time Machine
Fratellis Whistle For The Choir The closest you'll get to this title appearing in the lyrics is the whistling solo in the middle of the song! - Time Machine
The Fray We Build Then We Break Hold your breath, till it's over, there's something left underwater. - Dongquan
Friend & Lover Reach Out Of The Darkness They say "Reach out IN the darkness" rather than "Reach out OF the darkness." - Isac
Fuel Hemorrhage (In My Hands) The only part of the title that is mentioned is the part in parentheses. - MOR
Fully Down Descent, Rebellion, And All Around Hell Raising I killed for your love, My guilt and ignorance, - Katy
Fun Lovin' Criminals Love Unlimited Barry White saved my life. And if Barry White saved your life, and got you back with your ex-wife. - Tommy
