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

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
The Naked And Famous Young Blood The bittersweet between my teeth.
Trying to find the in-betweens.
Fall back in love eventually.
Yeah yeah yeah yeah. - Brian Kelly
Nat King Cole The Christmas Song Also known as "Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire", from its first line. The word "Christmas is in the song, as it wishes "Merry Christmas to you" in its last line, but the word "song" is not in the lyrics. - Thessaly Danes
Natalie Merchant Kind and Generous Should really be called "Thank You", as this is the point of the song and the phrase repeated many more times than "kind and generous". - Alex
Natalie Merchant My Skin Take a look at my body Look at my hands
There's so much here That I don't understand
Your face saving promises
Whispered like prayers I don't need them I don't need them - Leo X Daniels
Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats Wasting Time He sings "What a waste of time", but that's as close as it gets. - Opie M.
Nazareth Hair of the Dog Known as "Son of a B*tch", but that may not fly as a title of a song in the 70's. - Paul Warren
The Neighbourhood Sweater Weather The singer, Jesse Rutherford, mentions a sweater, but he doesn't mention the word "weather". - JohnHowarth
Neil Sedaka The Immigrant "There was a time when strangers were welcome here..." Dedicated to John Lennon. The single peaked at number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent one week at number one on the Easy Listening chart in May 1975. - Greg Hulak
Neil Young After The Gold Rush The title is never found in the lyrics. Probably the best known lyrics are in the various choruses, with lines like "Look at Mother Nature on the run / In the nineteen seventies." and "They were flying Mother Nature's silver seed / To a new home in the Sun." So a presumed title might be something like "Mother Nature On The Run" or "Mother Nature's Silver Seed". - The Quirkfetch Kid
Nektar A Tab in the Ocean "A greatly under-rated Prog-Psych. group. None-the-less, I always felt the title of the first cut (and the whole album), was just used as a hook to lure prospective buyer's to take a chance, and spend a buck. It could have been just as easy to label the whole effort "Lake of Acid" - princejellyfish
New Order Dreams Never End But never guess how the 'Him' would scream - JohnHowarth
New Order Fine Time The past doesn't matter - JohnHowarth

New Order Love Vigilantes I want to see my family / My wife and child waiting for me / I've got to come home / I've been so alone, you see - JohnHowarth

Niall Horan This Town The only time "this" and "town" are used in the same phrase is in the line "It's funny how things never change in this old town". The words "Everything comes back to you" are used much more frequently. - Ariana Grande mocha swirl
The Nice The Thoughts of Emerlist Davjack The name of the title comes from the members of The Nice 'Emer'son, O''List', 'Davi'son, and 'Jack'son. Nowhere was the title to be heard. It should be called "I'm Going Back"...but it just doesn't seem to sound right. - Paul Warren

Nirvana Sliver "Grandma" probably would have been better, since Kurt's telling her to take him home several times. - rocky
