Added DiffLines:

This is effectively an OmnipresentTrope in Music, to the point where aversions [[NonAppearingTitle are a trope in themselves.]] As such, this list will only contain particularly notable examples. See also AlbumTitleDrop and TitleTrack.

* Some other songs whose Title Drop comes right at the end: "Virginia Plain" by RoxyMusic, "The Prince" by Music/{{Madness}} (the album version, which also features on most of their best-ofs, doesn't include the title at all), "The Rose", usually associated with BetteMidler, and "One More Try" by Creator/GeorgeMichael.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/ImeldaMay has trivial one-word title drops on songs such as "Mayhem" (which is also the title track of its album), but also has a more more dramatic (and melodramatic) instance in the [[InterourseWithYou climactic]] section of "How Bad Can a Good Girl Be?" (on the album ''Life Love Flesh Blood'').

* Any song in existence (other than songs with [[NonAppearingTitle Non-Appearing Titles]]) will have a TitleDrop somewhere in there, usually in the chorus.
* In general, it's rare for a song [[NonAppearingTitle to NOT have a title drop]] than to have one. And when it doesn't, it usually leads to RefrainFromAssuming. (For example, many people think the title of Music/DavidBowie's "Space Oddity" is actually "Major Tom", [[IAmNotShazam but it isn't]].)
** This goes double for title songs in musicals.
** Additionally, most albums are named after one of the songs, which is a type of [[AC: TitleDrop]].
*** And there's also the AlbumTitleDrop, where a song lyric names the album (examples in that page).



* Many rappers namedrop themselves in their songs.

** "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".
