A music trope, where a band or singer names one of their songs "The (Something) Song". Normally used light-heartedly, usually because the word that the song title references comes up in the lyrics a lot. Also used occasionally in [[TheMusical musical theatre]]. The Japanese equivalent is "(something) no uta".

Can sometimes be a form of HeavyMeta.

* Leaether Strip - "The Scalpel Song"
* TVOnTheRadio - "Second Song", which is actually the ''first'' song on ''Nine Types of Light''.
* Most episodes of "[[ElmosWorld Elmo's World]]" (which often occurs near the end of the more recent episodes of ''SesameStreet'') often end with Elmo singing "The (insert topic here) Song", which is sung to the tune of "Jingle Bells", and composes of Elmo simply singing the topic name over and over again. In the ChristmasEpisode, Elmo actually sings the ''actual'' "Jingle Bells" song instead!
** The "Elmo's World" theme itself is "[[http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/Elmo%27s_Song Elmo's Song]]", but with different lyrics.
** Years before, there was an episode in which Elmo kept making up songs in the same vein, but with more mundane subjects, like a doorknob. It seemed to annoy the characters almost as much as Elmo's World -- and indeed, Elmo himself -- does to a certain segment of the PeripheryDemographic.

* ''Theatre/TheDesertSong'', in addition to the title tune, also featured "The Riff Song," "French Military Marching Song," "The Sabre Song" and "Song of the Brass Key."
* Rodgers and Hammerstein's ''Flower Drum Song'' is something of a subversion as it contains no song by that name and the title is actually a description of the ''style'' in which the song "A Hundred Million Miracles" is performed.
* Rodgers and Hart's ''The Vagabond King'' had "Scotch Archers' Song" and "Song of the Vagabonds."
* One-third of the songs in ''The Threepenny Opera'' have titles like this.

--> There's no hot water in my hotel!
--> ...The rhyming song?
