** And ''Music/InRainbows'' has said title in the bridge of "Reckoner". If you heard it before anyone told you you have the sonic abilities of a God.
** ''Music/PabloHoney'' has an album title drop in the form of SpokenWordInMusic: It's named for part of a Jerky Boys crank call, and the relevant part of this call can just barely be heard towards the end of "How Do You" ("Hello? Pablo, honey?").
** ''Music/KidA'' features its title in the heavily distorted and nigh-incomprehensible speaking at the beginning of "Everything in its Right Place." [[MindScrew It even sounds the same when reversed.]]

* Three of Music/CatherineWheel's albums include the album title in a song with a different title:
** ''Ferment'': "I'm fermenting, can't you see?" from the song "I Want to Touch You"
** ''Chrome'': "It fulfills my sense of real, a chrome protection" from the song "Crank"
** ''Adam and Eve'': "Tree to fruit, apple to seed, you are the A in Adam and Eve" from the song "Delicious"



* Music/DreamTheater title-drops the album names in the lyrics to songs in a few of their albums.
** ''When Dream And Day Unite'': "Only A Matter Of Time" ("And though the time will come when dream and day unite")
** ''Images And Words'': "Wait For Sleep" ("Where images and words are running deep")
** ''Music/MetropolisPt2ScenesFromAMemory'' - The main title is never mentioned, but the subtitle is in the song "Home" ("Decadent scenes from a memory")
*** In an interesting version of this trope, the phrase "Scenes From a Memory" is actually used in the song "Metropolis Part 1: The Miracle and the Sleeper", from the album "Images and Words", so the title drop is from an older album, from the song that the album's title is a "sequel" to.
** ''Octavarium'' is the title of the last song in the album ("Trapped inside this Octavarium")
*** In addition to the obvious ones listed above, the title for ''Train of Thought'' appears as an instrumental called "Stream of Consciousness".
** ''Systematic Chaos'': "Constant Motion", almost ("Random thoughts of neat disorder") (Neat disorder = systematic chaos)
** ''Six Degrees Of Inner Turbulence'' kind of does it with the line "The turbulence deep inside" from "Losing Time/Grand Finale" on Disc 2.
** ''A Change Of Seasons'', partially ("Seasons change and so can I" from "Another World")
** ''Awake'': "Where there is reason, tonight I'm awake", exerpt from "The Silent Man"
* Elbow album "The Seldom Seen Kid" has its title in "Grounds for Divorce" (''And Sundays are for drinking with the seldom seen kid'').
* Music/EltonJohn's ''Ice on Fire'' takes its title from a line in "Nikita".
* Music/ElvisCostello did this a lot: ''Music/MyAimIsTrue'' (from "Alison"), ''Punch the Clock'' (from "The Greatest Thing"), ''King of America'' (from "Brilliant Mistake"), ''Blood and Chocolate'' (from "Uncomplicated"), ''Taking Liberties'' (from "Crawling to the U.S.A.") and ''Brutal Youth'' (from "Favourite Hour").
** He also has an AlbumTitleDrop that's somewhat hidden: ''Music/ThisYearsModel'' was inspired by "(I Don't Want To Go To) Chelsea" ("Capital punishment/She's last year's model"), which was left off the U.S. version of the original album, but has been anthologized in several other places. Also, one of the other songs on the album is titled "This Year's Girl".



* Music/JoniMitchell's "Both Sides Now" does this for ''Clouds'' - clouds being the subject of the first verse of the song.
** ''[[Music/BlueJoniMitchellAlbum Blue]]'' is title dropped in nearly every song, to great effect. Not only is the central song on the album called "Blue", but All I Want has 'then we both get so blue', My Old Man has 'keeping away my blues' and 'them lonesome blues collide', Little Green has 'her eyes are blue', California has 'just gives you the blues', and A Case Of You has 'the blue tv screen light'.



* KONGOS' debut, ''Lunatic'' has this in "[[{{SanitySlippageSong}} I'm Only Joking]]":
-->Licking her chops, she looks at the '''lunatics'''
-->She needs another fix.



* The title of Music/ModestMouse's album ''Good News For People Who Love Bad News'' is a lyric from the song "Bury Me With It"



* Borderline example: Music/{{Oasis}}'s ''(What's the Story) Morning Glory?'' has a track on it called "Morning Glory", the lyrics to which include "What's the story, morning glory?"
** Inverted in their following album 'Be Here Now', which contains a track named 'Be Here Now' but the phrase [[NonAppearingTitle is not sung in either the song or the rest of the album.]]
** "To Be Where There's Life" does this: "''Dig out your soul'' cos here we go"
* The O.C. Supertones often title drop ''previous'' albums in their songs.
* The title of Music/{{Peaches}}' debut ''Music/TheTeachesOfPeaches'' is cribbed from a line in "Fuck the Pain Away".
* Music/{{Petra}} had three. The first, ''On Fire'', is a bit of a fake-out because the first track is "All Fired Up", but then "Hit You Where You Live", has the real title drop (shouted, even). ''Unseen Power'' has a somewhat shoehorned-in spoken one at the very end of the album (a British-sounding voice saying "You can't really see it... and yet, you know it's there... like some sort of unseen power"). Finally, ''Wake-Up Call'' is named for a line from "Sleeping Giant."



* Played with with ''Lullabies to Paralyze'' by Music/QueensOfTheStoneAge, where the album title comes from a line in "Mosquito Song", a song on the band's previous album.



* The debut Music/{{REM}} EP "Chronic Town" has its title in "Carnival of Sorts (Box Car)".
** ''Reveal'''s title is conspicously prominent in "I've Been High".
** ''Monster'' is named for two different lines in "Circus Envy", as well as for just being a noisy album.
** ''Up'' is sung in a few songs, but it's such a common word that this might have been unintentional.
** ''Collapse Into Now'' includes its title within the album's final track, "Blue" ("Living and blessed, I understand that 20th century collapse into now").



** Also the album ''Chutes Too Narrow'' is from the song "Young Pilgrims".



* Music/{{Starflyer 59}}'s ''Leave Here a Stranger'' gets its title from the repeated outro of "I Like Your Photographs".



* Music/TheStoneRoses compilation album ''Turns Into Stone'' takes it's title from the final line of their song 'One Love', "turns into dust or turns into stone."
* The title of Music/TheStrokes' album "Room on Fire" comes from a line in "Reptilia": ''The room is on fire as she's fixing her hair''.



* Treble Charger's fifth album, ''Detox'', was plucked from a line in the single "Hundred Million".
--> ''Take a step off your soapbox and see''
--> ''What it's like on the ground''
--> ''Check your ego in detox, baby''
--> ''Cause you're coming unwound and it's killing me''



* Elbow album "The Seldom Seen Kid" has its title in "Grounds for Divorce" (''And Sundays are for drinking with the seldom seen kid'').
