* A well known German example (in Germany, that is): "Fahr mit mir den Fluß hinunter" by Knut Kiesewetter, which is almost always labeled as "Sie sind grün", since that part refers to the (somewhat anvilicious) message of the song.

* Music/TheWho's [[Music/WhosNext "Baba O'Riley"]] is more commonly known as "Teenage Wasteland" -- its original working title. Some even call it "Out Here In The Field" after the first line. iTunes actually calls it "Teenage Wasteland" as well, which is misleading, to say the least. ''FreaksAndGeeks'' references this confusion. When the main character calls it "Teenage Wasteland", her friend gets annoyed and corrects her.

** An inversion/zig-zag: "We Will Rock You", arguably their most famous song, was the B-side to "We Are The Champions", and the two are almost always played together on the radio.

This leads to some people assuming "We Are The Champions" is the title of ''one big song'', and incorrectly assuming that other people are incorrectly assuming the title to the second part is "We Will Rock You"; or vice versa.
