List of songs with titles that do not appear in the lyrics

Template:Editing This is a list of songs whose title does not appear in the lyrics.

Template:Dynamic list of songs Template:CompactTOC2

Excluded from the list are:

  • Instrumentals. Pieces of music mentioned must be an actual song with lyrics and not an instrumental.
  • Songs that do contain lyrics but are purposefully untitled.
  • Titles that are descriptive of the song and therefore not expected to appear in the lyric. Examples of this include:
    • "59th Street Bridge Song"
    • "Alphabet song"
    • "Annie's Song"
    • "The Ballad of John and Yoko"
    • "Bohemian Rhapsody" - possibly the most famous example of a song without the title in the lyrics, but nevertheless excluded from the list.
    • "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill"
    • "Crossroads Blues"
    • "Danny's Song"
    • "Desert Song"
    • "Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-To-Die Rag"
    • "The Grand Finale"
    • "Hymn to Breaking Strain"
    • "Intro" and "Outro"
    • "The Last Song" (written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin)
    • "The March of Cambreadth"
    • "The Rain Song"
    • "The Rockafeller Skank"
    • "Song 2"
    • "Theme From Flood"
    • "Tom's Diner"
    • "Unchained Melody"
    • An example of a descriptive song that actually has the name mentioned is "Mambo No. 5" by Lou Bega.
  • A song whose title includes a version, part or year number in order to identify it is, for the purpose of this list, considered as not including that number.
  • Songs whose titles are acronyms or initialisms of words in the song. Examples include:
  • Songs where the exact song title does not actually appear, but words only a few parts of speech away from the title do. Examples include:
    • "Love Walks In" by Van Halen (contains the lyrics: "Love comes walking in")
    • "The Calendar Hung Itself" by Bright Eyes (contains the lyrics: "the calendar hanging itself")
    • "Careless Whisper" by Wham! ("the careless whispers are a good friend...")
    • "Cloud on My Tongue" by Tori Amos ("a cloud sleeping on my tongue")
    • "Closer to Fine" by the Indigo Girls ("the closer I am to fine")
  • Titles that are obviously combinations of entities each name-checked in the song. Examples include:
  • Songs in foreign languages, with English titles. Examples include:
  • Songs that have 100% nonsense-words aren't expected to have their title mentioned at all, and should be mentioned in the article List of songs in which the lyrics are exclusively nonsensical words. An example is "52 Girls" by B-52's.
