* Music/TaylorSwift also has a few other examples despite the fact that every single of her commercially released songs feature a TitleDrop.
** The song with the goat screams? That's not 'Trouble', but "I Knew You Were Trouble" - also not 'I Knew You Were Trouble When You Walked In'.
** She has no song called 'Cory's Song', 'Cory's Eyes', 'You're Beautiful', it's actually called "Stay Beautiful".
*** It's also not "Beautiful Eyes", a different Swift song.
** 'Love Song' is by Sara Bareilles, Swift's biggest hit is "Love Story" (also not 'Romeo & Juliet' or any variation thereof).
** "New Romantics" is not called 'The Best People In Life Are Free'.
** Played with in that she has several songs about staying. They are called "All You Had To Do Was Stay" and "Stay Stay Stay", neither are 'Stay'.
*** "Breathe" and "Clean" are both different but similar Taylor Swift songs, one from ''"Fearless"'' and one from ''"1989"''.
** "Mary's Song (Oh My, my, my)" is, when not forgotten, sometimes called 'My my my my my' or 'Stars that Shine'.
** "How You Get The Girl" isn't called 'That's How It Works', 'How You Lost The Girl', etc.
** "I Know Places" isn't called anything to do with foxes, hunters, or running (They are the hunters we are the foxes/And we run/Ba-by, I know places we won't be found/And they'll be chasing their tails trying to track us down/Cause I, I know places we can hide).

* Music/{{Blur}}'s "Song 2" is often called "Woo Hoo" after the chorus. This may be a cautionary tale for bands: if you're going to give your song the second most generic title possible (at least there's a number instead of just calling it "Song"), fans ''will'' invent their own name for it.

** A good number of P&F songs fall under title confusion. Some songs are given titles on [[TheWikiRule the wiki]] before the episode comes out, only these titles are different from the official BMI titles, which are sometimes different from the titles the writers and creators use.

Three examples: "History of Rock" not "Danny's Story," "Big Ginormous Airplane" not "The Paper Pelican Floor Show," and "Baliwood" not "Destroyed Dreams."

** The second track on ''Music/AbbeyRoad'' is just called "Something", "Something," not "Something in the Way She Moves". Moves." [[note]]This mistake is especially aggravating since "Something in the Way She Moves" is [[http://www.[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoevtZiVR4k a different song entirely]]. entirely.]] It was written and performed by Music/JamesTaylor on his debut album, which was released by Apple Records, The Beatles' label. The Beatles liked the song's opening line and proceeded to use it as the opening lyric of their own song, but obviously, they had to give it a different title. Interestingly, James Taylor had originally wanted his song to be titled "I Feel Fine", Fine," after a more dominant line in the chorus, but ''that'' title was already taken by a Beatles song![[/note]]
** The Beatles never recorded a song called "Please Don't Be Long". Long." Despite this lyric occurring many times throughout the song, its actual name is "Blue Jay Way" which is only said once in the song.



** "Eleanor Rigby" from ''Music/{{Revolver}}'' is not "All the Lonely People" or "Look at all the Lonely People".
** The second track on ''Music/RubberSoul'' is officially titled "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)", but people nearly always omit the parenthetical bit.
** "The Ballad of John and Yoko" isn't "You Know It Ain't Easy" or "They're Gonna Crucify Me". And it has no relation to Music/RingoStarr's solo hit "It Don't Come Easy", either.
* Music/PatBenatar's "Love Is a Battlefield" is often mistitled "We Are Young", after the line that ''begins'' the chorus instead of ending it.
* Music/TheBeautifulSouth did a song called "Good as Gold (Stupid as Mud)", and not "Carry On Regardless".
* Music/BenFolds has no song called "Give me my Money Back!". Instead, it's called "Song for the Dumped".
* That Music/JustinBieber song is just called "Boyfriend", not "If I Was Your Boyfriend".

When the album was released, the song was titled "Feeling This".

** ''Poodle Hat'' is noteworthy for having not even one parody where the title is a perfect substitute for the original's. His parody of "Complicated" by AvrilLavigne is not called "Constipated", "Related", or "Decapitated", with which Al replaces the word "complicated" in the first, second, and third verses, respectively; it's called "A Complicated Song". Rumor has it that the three verses are actually the beginnings of three different attempts at a parody of "Complicated" that were loosely tied together into a single song. His song about Film/SpiderMan1, sung to the tune of [[BillyJoel "Piano Man"]], is called "Ode to a Superhero" for legal reasons. "Couch Potato" was a parody of {{Eminem}}'s "Lose Yourself" (the title line of which was "lose your mind", which would be misleading out of context). "Trash Day" parodied Nelly's "Hot in Here" ("it's getting hot in here" became "there's something rotten here", among other things), but the title phrase does at least appear in the first line. Finally, his parody of the Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way" is simply called "eBay", not "What I Bought on eBay".
