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 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.|
