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

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
Oasis Shakermaker shake along with me. - Simone
Of Monsters And Men Alligator No memtion of an alligator. It does mention "fever dream", which is the name of the album this song came from. - Rock Maninoff
Of Montreal Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse Some indie-rock fans might know this song by its chorus of "Come on, chemicals!" and the lines "I'm in a crisis...I need help, come on mood, shift shift back to good again!" In fact, many of Of Montreal's song titles appear nowhere in their songs, and Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse is only one of the two songs on their latest album to feature the name of a Norwegian town! - Cat
Offspring Half-Truism If we don't make it alive/Well, it's a hell of a good day to die/Our light that shines strong/Only lasts for so long - Jonathan S.
The Offspring The Kids Aren't Alright Chances thrown. Nothing's free. Longing for what used to be. Still it's hard. Hard to see. Fragile lives. Shattered dreams. - Brian Kelly
Old Man Markley Beyond The Moon Don't wanna lose my mind like Gary Busey did Once upon a time, he was the same as you and me But, if I lose my mind like Gary Busey did Promise me you'll be around to keep me company (It's worth noting that the title does actually make an appearance. However, it's mixed in with a bunch of other lyrics in the verses, making hard to tell that from just listening that it IS the song's title.,) - Jonathan S.
Oliver Wallace Clown's Song Oh we're gonna hit the big boss for a raise - Alan of Seville
Orange Range Viva Rock "Sekaijuu hora waratteru sora miagete saa tachiagatte!" - DJ Blaze
Orgy Blue Monday The Orgy version of "Blue Monday" (which BTW, gets considerably more playing time on our local radio stations than New Order's original} doesn't contain the title in the lyrics either. - Indy
Owl City Dental Care It is a song ABOUT dental care, but that phrase doesn't appear in the lyrics. - Jonathan S.
