** "You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)" and "I Want You (She's So Heavy)". Both are late Beatles songs written by John, and both have almost no words other than the titles. I want you is almost 8 minutes and only 14 words, so it's more or less the epitome of this trope.
** GeorgeHarrison's "Got My Mind Set On You" drops the title 14 times, and repeats the half-title "Set on you" 14 more times for good measure. Music/WeirdAlYankovic's parody, "This Song's Just Six Words Long," mocks the repetition.

* On the track "Tempus Fugit" from Music/{{Yes}}' album ''Drama'', the word "YES!" is mentioned so often, and with such pathos, that you'd think they were trying to make it is the band's title song. Oddly enough, they never title itself, only English translation, "time flies".

* TitleDrop/TaylorSwift: Music/TaylorSwift has title dropped all but one song she's ever sung, and all but one album title, too. Therefore, she has a subpage.

* Music/TheAvalanches play around with this. Their debut ''Music/SinceILeftYou'' has a [[TitleTrack song of the same title]], which repeats a sample of the lyric "Since I left you, I found the world so new." Yet, the album itself also has many occurrences of said sample in the album's other tracks. They even use a couple of samples with their own name, as in "Avalanche Rock" and "Frontier Psychiatrist," with the latter containing a sample from a weather forecast stating "Avalanches above; business continues below."
**On the other hand, their second album ''Wildflower'' also has a [[TitleTrack song of the same title]], but no TitleDrop; there ''is'' an AlbumTitleDrop in the song "Kaleidoscope Lovers," though, in which Jonathan Donahue sings:
-->And in the wind, I can see
-->One by one, wildflowers dance with me.

* GreenDay's ''Music/TwentyFirstCenturyBreakdown'', aside from the song of the same name, name-drops each of the three acts: "Heroes and Cons" at the end of "21st Century Breakdown", "Charlatans and Saints" in "Little Girl", and "Horseshoes and Handgrenades" in, well, "Horseshoes and Handgrenades".

* "We Did It Again", by Music/SoftMachine, is yet another pathological example. The lyrics consist of repeating the title again and again and again... until they are briefly interupted by an organ solo and the singers start all over. According to The Other Wiki, the band once played for 40 minutes straight.
