Added DiffLines:

* Music/BradPaisley double-subverts this with ''Love and War''. Originally intended lead single "Without a Fight" contains the line "And sometimes I think we don't belong together / Confusing love and war". However, the song bombed at radio, pushing the album into a brief DevelopmentHell and resulting in "Without a Fight" not making the final cut. That said, the album still has a title track.


Added DiffLines:

* Midland, ''On the Rocks'', from lead single "Drinkin' Problem" ("People sayin' that I've hit rock bottom / Just 'cause I'm livin' on the rocks").

* Music/{{Ayreon}} also does it a bunch of times, sometimes not even on the same album. ''The Final Experiment'''s name is dropped by Merlin in the tracks "Prologue" and "Ayreon's Fate". ''The Human Equation'' is actually title-dropped (almost) on the next album, ''01011001'', in the song "The Sixth Extinction" ("We must resolve this human equation"). ''The Universal Migrator Part 1: The Dream Sequencer'' gets its subtitle dropped several times throughout the story, though the first time is heard right at the start of "Beyond The Last Horizon" on the album ''Actual Fantasy'', when the familiar line "Dream Sequencer system offline" is spoken long before we learn what the Dream Sequencer is or even that it's important to the story. Actual Fantasy is the first line of that album, as well as the name of the first track. ''Universal Migrator'' is dropped twice to my recollection, both in "Chaos" ("I will now take you back to the Big Bang, and the birth of the very first soul, called... the Universal Migrator") and in "To The Solar System" ("Please abort Universal Migrator sequence"). Also referenced in "Ride The Comet" from ''01011001'' ("Journey on the Migrator trail"). All in all, this serves to tie the album's stories into each other and keep the continuity and plot of the whole Ayreon universe going. Ayreon is also the name of a character who features mainly in ''The Final Experiment'', but is spoken about or referred to in many other albums, although usually not by name.
** It might be worth noting that the "Dream Sequencer system offline" line is not repeated in the remake of the album. It might be in reference of an older idea for the Dream Sequencer. The revisited version was released 4 years after The Universal Migrator.



* In Music/{{Beck}}'s album ''Music/{{Odelay}}'', the word is used in the song "Lord Only Knows."
** Also used in ''Guero'', from the song "Que Onda Guero."
** Also "Little One" on''Sea Change'' uses the line "In a sea change nothing is safe."



* Music/TheBrobecks' album ''Violent Things'' is named after a line in the song “Love at First Sight”.



* Collide's ''Some Kind Of Strange'' has its title in the lyrics of "Euphoria": "Feel some kind of strange..."



* Music/TheDecemberists take it to very meta levels with "The Hazards of Love". It is: the title of the album, and the main title of ''four'' different songs, each of which drops the title in their lyrics at least once.
** A more conventional instance occurs with "Castaways and Cutouts", whose title comes from the track "California One/Youth and Beauty Brigade".



* Music/TheDivineComedy's "Theme From Casanova" serves the exact same function.



* {{Everclear}}'s ''Sparkle And Fade'' is named for a repeated lyric in "Summerland": "We could get lost in the fall /Glimmer, sparkle and fade".



* Music/TheHollies' ''A Crazy Steal'' takes its title from a line in "Hello to Romance".
* The Influents's "Some of the Young" is a repeated line in "Life, and Life Only", the first instance: ''we climb so high, from it all / And I guess we owe it all to some of the young''. Interestingly, the phrase "Life, and Life Only" never occurs in the song, one listening to it for the first time would probably guess the title to be "Some of the Young".



* The name of Jimmy Buffett's ''Living and Dying in 3/4 Time'' comes from the song "Nautical Wheelers"... which wasn't released until his ''next'' album, ''[=A1A=]''.



* The Music/MotionCitySoundtrack album ''Commit This To Memory'' takes it's title from the song "Hangman". ("Hangman, it's not your fault, '''commit this to memory'''.)
** ''My Dinosaur Life'' had a pre-order bonus track called "Sunny Day" which included this line: "There is no future and we both are thinking 'so this is '''my dinosaur life''', this is '''my dinosaur life''''".



* Of Montreal's ''Skeletal Lamping'' goes a step further, being apparently taken from a line from a song on their ''previous'' full album, ''Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?'', namely "Faberge Falls For Shuggie."
** The titles for their newest album ''False Priest'' and an upcoming EP ''The Controllersphere'' also take their names from the same line in "Faberge Falls For Shuggie" as ''Skeletal Lamping''.
* Music/PaulMcCartney's ''Flowers in the Dirt'' comes from a line in "That Day Is Done".
** His album ''Chaos and Creation in the Back Yard'' doesn't exactly have an exact title drop, but the phrase "chaos and creation" is from the song "Fine Line."
** Paul's ''Kisses On The Bottom'' comes from a line from the old standard ''(I'm Gonna Sit Right Down And) Write Myself A Letter''.
* Music/PaulSimon's album ''Surprise'' takes its title from a line in the song "Everything About it is a Love Song".
** His GreatestHitsAlbum ''Negotiations And Love Songs'' takes its name from a line in the song "Train In The Distance": "Negotiations and love songs are often mistaken for one and the same".



* Music/{{Roxette}} has also done this a couple of times. Their album ''Have a Nice Day'' takes its title from a line in "You Can't Put Your Arms Around What's Already Gone". There's also ''Look Sharp!'', which is shouted near the end of "Dressed for Success".
* The title of "Mystery Girl," Roy Orbison's final album, comes from the lyrics of the song "She's a Mystery to Me."



* The group [=SHeDAISY=] does this regularly:
** ''The Whole [=SHeBANG=]'' is named for a line in "I Will? But," altered slightly to match the capitalization of their name.
** ''Sweet Right Here'' is named for a line in "Passenger Seat." The song "Don't Worry 'bout a Thing" also title-drops the album in between, ''Knock on the Sky''.
** ''Knock On The Sky'' is title dropped on its own album, in the [[EasterEgg hidden track]].
** ''Fortuneteller's Melody'' gets it's name from a lyric in the album's first track "23 Days".



* Music/SnowPatrol's "A Hundred Million Suns" comes from a line in "The Planets Bend Between Us":
-->''A hundred million suns and stars
-->the sea filled in this silence''
** Snow Patrol seem to like this trope; their previous two albums "Final Straw" and "Eyes Open" also use it.
** And ''Fallen Empires'' has "Fallen Empires", which doubles also as a TitleTrack.



* The album ''Transmission'' by Music/TheTeaParty has ITS FFS name dropped about 7 times at the end of the TitleTrack.



* Music/TheDivineComedy's "Theme From Casanova" serves the exact same function.

** 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''
