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
|Taking Back Sunday||This Photograph Is Proof||I know you know everything/ I know you didn't mean it/ I know you didn't mean it. (truthfully there are PLENTY of TBS songs I could list here.) - Morgan|
|Taking Back Sunday||A Decade Under The Influence||Most likely known better for the lyrics, "I got a bad feeling about this" or "To hell with you and all your friends, let's go." - Jonathan S.|
|Talk Talk||I Believe in You||The song is from the album "Spirit of Eden". The most repeated word in the song is "spirit", so "Spirit" might be an alternate title. - B1982|
|Talking Heads||Life During Wartime||This ain't no party! This ain't no disco! This ain't no foolin' around! - Carole Krus|
|Tegan and Sarah||The Con||It should be known as "Nobody like me Maybe if I cry". - Paul Warren|
|Tenacious D||Master Exploder||Cool music, but the title is never used. - Jonathan S.|
|Therapy?||Screamager||Screw that, forget about that|
I don't wanna think about anything like that
Screw that, forget about that
I don't wanna know about anything like that
I've got nothing to do
But hang around and get screwed up on you - Jonathan S.
|Third Eye Blind||Jumper||"I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend." The title is not in the lyrics. It's a song about changing someone's mind from committing suicide from jumping off a building. - crazydon|
|Toadies||Possum Kingdom||There's a Possum Kingdom Lake in Texas near Fort Worth, Texas where the band's from. In the beginning of the song, they mentioned a lake, but Possum Kingdom was never mentioned. - MSG|
|Tool||Ænima||Probably the most repeated line is, "Learn to swim." - Jonathan S.|
|Tool||Forty-Six & 2||My shadow...my shadow...changes... - Jonathan S.|
|Tool||Prison Sex||Another instance where the title fits the song so much, it doesn't need to be sung in the lyrics. - Robert Plant Food|
|Tool||Stinkfist||Many radio stations found the title, which is not found within the song's lyrics, to be offensive. They had their air personalities introduce the song as "Song #1" (or something similar), because it was the first song on the "Aenima" CD. - Karen Black Sabbath|
|Tori Amos||Professional Widow||Honey bring it close to my lips, yeah! - Ben|
|The Toys||A Lovers' Concerto||"How gentle is the rain" is the first line, and I suppose, the lyrics most likely to be thought of as the title when one doesn't know the actual title, not found in the lyrics. - Thessaly Danes|
|Traditional||Carol Of The Bells||"Christmas is here, bringing good cheer...", "Ding, dong, ding, dong...".(usually accompanied by Christmas bells). - Santa|
|Traditional||Coventry Carol||Also known by its first line, "Bye-bye, thou little tiny child". The title "Coventry Carol" is nowhere in the lyrics. - Donna Rand Blitzen|
|Traditional||America||Opening and best know line is "My country, 'tis of thee". In fact, that is often parenthetically attached to the title, most likely to distinguish it from "America The Beautiful" another song that also might be thought of as "America" and which DOES have "America" in the title. - Thessaly Danes|
|Traditional||The Angels' Song||"The Angels' Song" is in fact the original title given the song by its author, Edmund H. Sears, But today possibly few even know it by that title. It has become generally known by its first line, "It came upon the midnight clear". - Thessaly Danes|
|Traditional||Battle Hymn Of The Republic||"Mine eyes have seen the glory" (opening line) or "Glory, glory, Hallelujah" (opens each chorus) could either be the best know lyrics. The title certainly isn't in the lyrics. - Thessaly Danes|
|Traffic||Houses for Everyone||They do mention houses, but it aim towards the house of true and lies. - Paul Warren|
