* ''DeadOrAlive'': Various films with nothing to do with each other, a video game series (one of which inspired a movie), an '80s [[NewWaveMusic New Wave]] band, a Creator/TomClancy book, and a BonJovi song all share this title.

* "Just Another Day" is the title of three separate songs by 1) Jon Secada (the most famous one), 2) OingoBoingo and 3) Wrestling/JohnCena and Tha Trademarc. They are all relatively low-key numbers and generally pessimistic in tone, but those are the only two things they all have in common. The first one is a [[SillyLoveSongs Silly Love Song]], the second is about TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, and the third is simply about how the protagonist's life sucks. Additionally, it's the name usually given to a music track from ''VideoGame/TheLostVikings'', though where the name comes from (or if it's even official) isn't known. Outside of music, "Just Another Day" can refer to a series of comedic mods for ''VideoGame/FreeSpace2''

** Also, it's a DuranDuran song -- which was ''sampled'' by Biggie for a song of same name yet again.

* "Baby Driver" is the title of two songs released within one year of each other (1975-1976)! The earlier and more famous one is by PaulSimon, and it sounds almost like a folk tune for very young children. The other is by {{Kiss}}, and it's a raucous funk-rock number with a surprisingly demonic vocal part by drummer Peter Criss.

* Do not confuse "Creature of the Night" (a number from ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'') with ''Creatures of the Night'' (a 1982 {{Kiss}} album). Or with the fans of {{TNA}} wrestler JeffHardy, who are called (you guessed it) "Creatures of the Night."

* Music/{{Rush}}, the Canadian ProgRock trio, have had at one point to remind [[RushLimbaugh Rush]], the American conservative talk show host, to not use their music with this as justification. And if any of these are related to ''Rush'', a 1991 crime drama taking place in Texas, it'd be a surprise. Also, people looking in record shops for music by the prog group have reportedly been annoyed at having to wade through Jennifer Rush albums in their search.

* It's Film/{{Xanadu}}, and the singer's high-pitched. Are you hearing OliviaNewtonJohn or [[{{Rush}} Geddy Lee]]? The name "Xanadu" is also used for a Dave Dee Dozy Beaky Mick and Titch hit, although technically that one is "The Legend of Xanadu".

* ''Fireball'' by Don Spencer (composed by BarryGray, as the closing-credits music of Series/FireballXL5) is not to be confused with ''Fireball'' by DeepPurple. Although this is now unlikely anyway, as the former has been renamed for its first line, ''I Wish I Was A Spaceman''.
