** "Under the Bridge" is called quite a few different things. These include "City of Angels", which occurs ''fewer'' times in the lyrics than the title but is enunciated more clearly. There's also "Take Me To The Place I Love." (And of course, thanks to the WeirdAlEffect, there are many people who know it only as [[TheFlintstones "Yabba-Dabba-Doo Now"]] by - who else - "Weird Al" Yankovic.)

* The first opening theme from ''[[FistOfTheNorthStar Hokuto no Ken]]'' by Crystal King is often referred to as "You wa Shock," as that line comes up quite a bit in the lyrics. It's actually titled "Ai o Torimodose," a line which appears far fewer times (twice in the album version, only once in the TV edit).

** ''Infinity on High'' has four songs with more-or-less easily identified titles, and ten with titles that never appear in the lyrics.[[note]]Exceptions: "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race" (though in the song, it's "''a goddamned'' arms race"), "Hum Hallelujah", "Golden", and "Thnks Fr Th Mmrs". [[/note]] "I'm Like A Lawyer With The Way I'm Always Trying To Get You Off (Me & You)" is an obvious example, but none of the other nine are any easier to guess.

** The first song on ''Dark Passion Play'' is "The Poet and the Pendulum", not "Getaway, Runaway, Fly Away" or any other line from the chorus. The actual title never appears in the lyrics -- they refer to a "poet", and the title refers to Creator/EdgarAllanPoe's short story "The Pit and the Pendulum", which is also alluded to many times in the lyrics. The word "pendulum" never appears in the lyrics either, though it is alluded to with lines like "Swaying blade my lullaby" and "The blade will keep on descending".
