***"Thnks fr th Mmrs" plays with this as the track title is "Thanks for the memories" without the vowels (apparently an inside joke when FOB was in formed that their track titles end up too long), which appears in the chorus.

** Their breakout hit in 1985 was a live performance of "Bad" at Live Aid. If you don't recognize the title, you probably think the song is called something like "I'm wide awake, I'm not sleeping", from the song's refrain.

** ''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 [[Music/BillyJoel "Piano Man"]], is called "Ode to a Superhero" for legal reasons. "Couch Potato" was a parody of Music/{{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".

** FBS has never recorded anything called "Funk Soul Brother". Or "Check It out Now". (Or [[{{Mondegreen}} "The Funk's Your Brother", nor "The Funk's So Rubber".]]) Try "The Rockafeller Skank". [[note]]This is [[AscendedMeme referenced]] in the track's intro on ''You've Come a Long Way, Baby'', where a caller calls in to a radio show and, after calling FatboySlim "the band of the 90s... if you can call it a band, 'cause it's a one-man name", requests "the funk soul BROTHER!!" and sings the first line after the host tells him he doesn't know which one he's talking about.[[/note]] The CD single was sold with a sticker on it saying "Check It out Now, the Funk Soul Brother" so people would know that that was the song.

* The name of Ylvis's viral hit is not "What Does the Fox Say?". At first, it was just called "The Fox," but confusion was so common that "What Does the Fox Say?" was eventually added as a subtitle.

** The current (2014) ''[=SmackDown=]'' theme is called "Born to Run" - which is obviously going to confuse a whole lot of viewers over the age of 30, since that is more famously the name of a BruceSpringsteen song [[NamesTheSame (and no, the WWE "Born to Run" isn't a cover)]]. You'd never know it if you're just a casual WWE fan, though, since the chorus is better known for the lines "The sky turns black, it don't matter" and "Now the sun is comin' up" - and the final word of "We were [not "I was"] born to run" itself is drawn out and deliberately mispronounced as "reh-un", probably to avoid sounding too much like Springsteen.

** "Isn't It Midnight" is sometimes called "The Face Of A Pretty Girl" The title actually ''does'' appear in the refrain but isn't as prominent.

* The opening song of Disney's ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' is called "Belle", ''not'' "Bonjour". Much of the lyrics even contain the townsfolk opinions of Belle.
** Also sometimes mistakenly called "Provincial Life", another recurring phrase.
** But, more often than not, it is falsely titled "Little Town," because it's the first words of the song.
** Additionally, "The Mob Song" is not titled "Kill the Beast".
* A song from ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunksMeetTheWolfman'' is called "The Monster's out in You", not "Little Brother, Mr. Hyde".
* ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas'': Jack's Lament is sometimes referred to as "The Pumpkin King" or simply "Jack's Song", the latter making no sense, as most of the songs are sung by Jack.
