-->-- '''Music/WesleyWillis''', Take a wild freaking guess.

A [[MusicTropes music trope]]. A song whose chorus consists entirely of the song title, repeated over and over again, perhaps with slight variation. Particularly common in modern pop music, this can be good marketing, as the listener will tend to notice and remember the song title. It's hard to pull off depending on the song structure and the syllables. However, it has a higher potential of becoming an AudienceParticipationSong. Easier to do with a LongTitle.

Compare TitleThemeTune and ChorusOnlySong.

* Every song ever written by Music/WesleyWillis.
* "Friend of Mine" by Music/LOHess comes very close - with the chorus consisting entirely of the repeated line "You're never gonna be a friend of mine"
* Static-X - "Reptile"
* "Say (What You Need to Say)" by John Mayer
* Music/JohannSebastianBach's ''Magnificat in D Major'' includes a movement titled "Omnes generationes" (All generations). This movement consists of the choir singing the words "omnes generationes" for the entirety of it.
* Music/TheBeatles have quite a few:
** "We Can Work It Out"
** ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'' has both "Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds" and "Good Morning Good Morning"
** "I Want To Hold Your Hand"
** "Girl"
** "You Know My Name (Look Up The Number)" may not have a chorus, but...There is only the one lyric.
** "Helter Skelter" from ''Music/TheWhiteAlbum''
** "Don't Let Me Down" from ''Music/LetItBe''
** "Why Don't We Do It In The Road?" from ''Music/TheWhiteAlbum'' (in fact, outside of [[TemptingFate "No one will be watching us!"]] [[BrokenRecord the only lyric]])
** "All You Need Is Love"
** "All Together Now"
* Music/BigPun - "Nigga Shit"
* Music/BillyJoel - "Pressure".
** "Only the Good Die Young".
* Music/BruceSpringsteen - "Born in the USA".
** And this example from the same album:
--->''I'm goin' down down down down\\
I'm goin' down down down down\\
I'm goin' down down down down\\
I'm goin' down down down down''
** "Crush On You" from ''The River'':
--->''Ooh ooh I got a crush on you\\
Ooh ooh I got a crush on you\\
Ooh ooh I got a crush on you tonight''
** "Where The Bands Are" from ''Tracks'':
--->''I wanna be where the bands are\\
I wanna be where the bands are\\
(Where the bands are)\\
Where the bands are\\
I wanna be where the bands are\\
(Where the bands are)''
* Cascada - "Pyromania"
* Music/MichaelJackson: He has a song called "Dirty Diana", whose chorus contains only the title, and in the first verse, a "let me be".
* Music/CrashTestDummies - "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm"
* Music/DaftPunk - "Around the World". Except this exceeds the trope, as it's the ''entire song''.
** Alongside this is "Robot Rock,", "Television Rules the Nation," and pretty much every other song with discernible lyrics on ''Human After All'', including the title track.
** Well, that particular song does have one other line.
-->''We are human\\
After all\\
Much in common\\
After all''
** "Lose Yourself to Dance", aside from the robotic "c'monc'monc'mon" afterwards.
* Deerhoof - "Panda Panda Panda", which changes the last "panda" with various words like beep-beep or China.
* Music/DuranDuran - "Girls On Film", which, amusingly enough, has been covered by Music/WesleyWillis.
* Music/EaglesOfDeathMetal - "I Only Want You"
* Music/ElectricSix - "[[LongTitle There's Something Very Wrong With Us, So Let's Go Out Tonight]]"
* Music/MenAtWork - "Who Can It Be Now?"
* [[Music/RobZombie White Zombie]] - "More Human Than Human"
* In Culto - "Welcome to Lithuania (The Land of the Beautiful Ladies)".
* Music/GeorgeHarrison - "I've Got My Mind Set on You"
** And Music/WeirdAlYankovic's parody, "This Song's Just Six Words Long"
** The original version by James Ray has the title as the first three lines of the chorus, but the last line is different ("I know what I've got to do.")
* Music/{{REM}} - "It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)," "Catapult", "Low", "Talk About the Passion," and "Sweetness Follows," if you don't count the "ohs" as words.
* Music/VanMorrison - "Gloria"
* Music/VelvetUnderground - "Sweet Jane"
* Sam & Dave[=/=]Music/ElvisCostello - "I Can't Stand Up For Falling Down"
* Music/SlyAndTheFamilyStone- "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)", "Stand!" from ''Music/{{Stand}}''.
* LCD Soundsystem - "Yeah", "Pow Pow"
* Music/ManicStreetPreachers - "You Love Us"
** Then there's "A Design For Life" and "If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next", arguably the two most well-known Manics songs.
* Lieutenant Pigeon - "Mouldy Old Dough"
* Music/{{Metallica}} - "Frantic"
* About half of all Music/IronMaiden songs from the ''Somewhere in Time'' album onwards, such as the {{Title Track}}s "Caught Somewhere in Time", "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son", "Fear of the Dark", "Brave New World"... and in a variant, "Satellite 15... The Final Frontier" (only the last part is sung).
* Music/ElectricLightOrchestra - "Evil Woman"
* Sade - "Smooth Operator"
* Many songs by Music/{{ACDC}}, like "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap" and "You Shook Me All Night Long". One can often learn the name of the song by listening to the only repeated line in the chorus.
* Music/RageAgainstTheMachine are big fans of this. Most of their songs that don't have a TitleOnlyChorus at the very least have a one-line chorus, like "Killing in the Name".
* Material Issue's "Valerie Loves Me", though it's only sung (read: screamed) once per chorus. There is some variation in that the scream gets more psychotic with each repetition.
* Redbone - "Come and Get Your Love"
* Elliott Smith - "Needle in the Hay."
* Music/ThePolice love this trope, particularly in their earlier stuff: "[[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Roxanne]]", "[[IJustWantToBeLoved So Lonely]]", "[[HotForTeacher Don't Stand So Close to Me]]", from ''Music/OutlandosDAmour''; "[[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs Walking in Your Footsteps]]", "[[DrivenToSuicide Can't Stand Losing You]]", "[[LongTitle When the World Is Running Down You Make the Best of What's Still Around]]", "[[DemonicPossession Spirits in the Material World]]" "[[SleepingSingle The Bed's Too Big Without You]]", "[[ImOkay It's Alright for You]]", "[[BreakupSong Hole in My Life]]", "[[SocietyMarchesOn Born in the '50s]]", "[[AwfulTruth Truth Hits Everybody]]", "[[TearJerker Driven to Tears]]", "[[HumanityIsSuperior Rehumanize Yourself]]", and there are probably a few more.
* Music/TheResidents - "You Yesyesyes".
* Music/WeirdAlYankovic - "Albuquerque".
* Music/{{Nightwish}} - "Master Passion Greed", "Meadows of Heaven"
* Music/MarilynManson - "I Don't Like the Drugs (But the Drugs Like Me)"
* The Living End - Whats On Your Radio? The first half of the Ochorus and the last line anyway.
** All Torn Down fits better.
* Music/VanHalen - "Panama", "Where Have All the Good Times Gone", "And the Cradle Will Rock", "She's the Woman". "Big River" at most adds some "Rolling!" to the title.
* Music/{{Yes}} - "Leave It"
* Music/JudasPriest - "Breaking the Law" from ''Music/BritishSteel'', "HellBentForLeather", "Riding on the Wind", "Bloodstone", "Freewheel Burning", "Eat Me Alive", "Some Heads Are Gonna Roll", "All Guns Blazing"

** As well as "Trism" and "Girl From Ipanema Goes To Greenland".
* War - "Why Can't We Be Friends?"
* Music/DollyParton and of course Whitney Houston - "I Will Always Love You"
* Toots & The Maytals - "54-46 (That's My Number)". The better known remake/sequel they did a couple years later ("54-46 Was My Number") doesn't qualify, though.
* Arguably, "Trogdor" by [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Strong Bad]].
* Music/TheArrogantWorms come close with "Don't Go Into Politics". Every other line is "don't go into politics/science/music", alternating with "you'll end up dead".
* Spoon - "Sister Jack".
* "Help Me" by Timo Maas featuring Kelis.
* Music/{{Paramore}} - "(You Are) The Only Exception".
* Music/ThePixies - "Here Comes Your Man", "There Goes My Gun", "Debaser". Hell, half of ''Doolittle'' does this.
** "Where Is My Mind?" of ''Music/SurferRosa''.
* Philip Glass - "Koyaanisqatsi"
* Screeching Weasel - "You'll Be in My Dreams Today".
* Reel 2 Real - "I Like to Move It"
* Music/{{Nirvana}} - "Something in the Way" from ''Music/{{Nevermind}}''. Not to mention that the chorus is practically the only audible part of the PerishingAltRockVoice-heavy song.
* Music/RedHotChiliPeppers - "Me and My Friends", "Behind the Sun", "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes".
* Many, many songs by Drivin' N Cryin' follow this trope.
* "Gimme More" by Music/BritneySpears
** "Womanizer" does this in the first half of the chorus. Maybe a little more variation than most songs under this trope. [[FollowTheBouncingBall Sing along!]] "Womanizer, woman, womanizer, you're a womanizer..."
*** "Oh, womanizer, oh, you're a womanizer baby."
*** "You-you-you are... you-you-you are... womanizer, womanizer, womanizer..."
*** "Boy, don't try to front, I-I know just-just what you are-are-are..."
* "Liar" by Music/EmilieAutumn
* Music/TomWaits does this fairly regularly.
* Music/{{Ween}} did this a ''lot'' on their earlier songs: among many others, there are "Licking The Palm For Guava," "L.M.L.Y.P.," "Right To The Ways And The Rules Of The World," "Boing," "Molly," "Can U Taste The Waste?," "I Play It Off Legit," "Flies On My Dick," "I Can't Put My Finger On It," "Mister, Would You Please Help My Pony?," and "Cover It With Gas And Set It On Fire."
* Music/{{Aerosmith}} - "Dude Looks Like a Lady" and [[TitleTrack "Toys In The Attic"]].
* "I just wanna say I love you" by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeFoYhG2ADc Potret]]
* "Blind" by Music/TalkingHeads. Interestingly, the title is one word and it's used in the chorus fourteen times each verse.
* Culture Club - "I'll Tumble 4 Ya" and "Church of The Poison Mind"
* Smokey Robinson & The Miracles, Music/LindaRonstadt - "Ooo Baby Baby"
* Music/{{Gorillaz}} - "Feel Good Inc." from ''Music/DemonDays'' is a milder example.
-->''"Feel good- (Shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it) Feel good-"''
* Coal Chamber's "loco"
* David Francey's "All Lights Burning Bright."
* Music/LadyGaga's "Again Again"
* Bruce Cockburn's "Wondering Where The Lions Are." It's not at all surprising that this is also an AudienceParticipationSong where he sings the line and the audience echoes it.
** "See How I Miss You" is another one.
* Music/MeatLoaf's "I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)", "Out Of The Frying Pan (And Into The Fire)", "Objects In The Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are" and "Everything Louder Than Everything Else". Interestingly, as well as all having extremely long titles (and subsequently rather long choruses by the standards of this trope), they're all from the same album ("Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell").
* Music/AlexandraBurke's duet with Music/CobraStarship "What Happens On The Dancefloor."
* Music/MaximumTheHormone's "[[LongTitle Chu Chu Lovely Muni Muni Mura Mura Purin Purin Boron Nurururerorero]]".
* Music/{{Adele}}'s "Rumour Has It".
* Every Airbourne song. Period.
* "Harassing The Conman" by Music/EverythingElse.
* "Run For Your Life" by Riot ([[NamesTheSame the one from]] ''Fire Down Under'', not ''Thundersteel''). While we're at it, the title track and "Don't Bring Me Down" from that album qualify too, along with "Over to You," "Born in America," "Wings Are For Angels," and a few others throughout their career.
* About half the songs on {{Music/Death}}'s ''Scream Bloody Gore''.
* ''Your love, your love, your love, is my drug'' by Music/{{Kesha}}
* Shaggy's ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCzIvIAcwJE Ah-I-E-Oh]]''.
* Music/{{Europe}}'s "The Final Countdown".
* Curve - "Hell Above the Water"
* Ludacris' "Grew Up a Screwup"
* Red Red Meat - "Chain Chain Chain" (on first listen, the chorus may also be [[SomethingSomethingLeonardBernstein the only intelligible part of the song]] too)
* Music/GarthBrooks - "Way Of The Girl" from ''Music/InTheLifeOfChrisGaines''.
* "Come Over" by Music/KennyChesney
* "I Hope You Dance" by Lee Ann Womack, unless the counterpoint counts.
* "I'll Go On Loving You" by Music/AlanJackson.
* Music/{{Rammstein}} have a lot of these - "Asche zu Asche," "Herzeleid," "Das alte Leid," "Heirate mich," "Sehnsucht," "Bueck dich," "Spiel mit mir," "Mein Herz brennt," "Links 2-3-4," "Mutter," "Feuer Frei!," "Rein Raus," and "Mein Teil," just to name a few.
* "Howl" and "Shake It Out" by Music/FlorenceAndTheMachine.
* "Love's Gonna Make It Alright" by Music/GeorgeStrait
* "How Does it Make You Feel" by Music/{{Air}}
* Fictional example: "I Want Your Sex Pootie" (by the Seminal Fluids) from ''Literature/BigTrouble''.
* "All for Love" by Music/LadyAntebellum is nearly this. -- "You did this all for love" or "I did this all for love".
* Another fictional example: ''WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}'' has the Jem and the Holograms song "Only The Beginning", along with many of their other songs as well.[[note]]Not to mention some of the songs by The Misfits (no, not [[Music/TheMisfits them]]).[[/note]]
* "I Wanna Be Yours" by Music/ArcticMonkeys.
* Humble Pie - "30 Days in The Hole"
* "I'm Not Waiting" by Willie Nile. The chorus is simply "I'm not waiting for you anymore, I'm not waiting for you anymore, I'm not waiting for you anymore."
** The chorus of "She's So Cold" is multiple repetitions of the phrase "She's so cold, she's so cold, she's so, she's so, she's so cold!"
* "That's What I Get for Losin' You" by Hal Ketchum.
* "Wake Up Lovin' You" by Craig Morgan.
* "Long Live Rock 'n' Roll" by {{Music/Rainbow}}
* "The Story Of A Young Heart" by Music/AFlockOfSeagulls.
* If you need proof that this isn't strictly an English phenomenon, check out French metal band Sortilège's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZ7J8IGQZLI namesake track]], as well as a few of their other songs ("Majesté," "Metamorphose," "Chasse Le Dragon").
* Music/{{Accept}} have the title tracks of ''Restless & Wild'' and ''Balls to the Wall''.
* "Hell on Wheels" and "Heaven's Devils" by Acid, an obscure Belgian metal band.
* New Model Army's "I Love the World"
* "Angel Witch," from the album ''Angel Witch'' by the band Angel Witch, features a chorus that consisting of the line "You're an angel witch, you're an angel witch" sung over and over. And it will get stuck in your head
* Pretty much everything from Music/{{Girlschool}}'s ''Demolition'', their first album.
* Rolf Harris - "Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport"
* "I Love a Rainy Night" by Music/EddieRabbitt.
* "Old Home Filler Up an' Keep on a-Truckin' Cafe" by C.W. McCall.
* "Sail Away" by Music/{{Enya}}, though the actual title of the song is "Orinoco Flow."
* "Crazy On You" by Music/{{Heart}}.
* "Nothing Compares 2U", written by Music/{{Prince}}, and originally recorded by his side project The Family, but [[CoveredUp made famous]] by Music/SineadOConnor.
* "Run, Run, Run" by Music/PattiScialfa:
-->''Run, run, run, yeah,\\
Run, run, run, yeah,\\
Run, run, run'
** Music/TheWho's "Run, Run, Run" also counts, as does "Run, Run, Run", a minor 1967 hit by The Third Rail, which was included on the original [[GarageRock ''Nuggets'']] album.
* Music/JethroTull - "Skating Away on the Thin Ice of the New Day."
* "Vietnam" by Music/JimmyCliff.

* Music/TheHives' "[[LongTitle Two Timing Touch and Broken Bones.]]"

* Music/{{Sheppard}}'s "Geronimo."
* Music/DeadKennedys' "California Über Alles", "Too Drunk to Fuck" (the first time, anyway), "Chemical Warfare", "Nazi Punks Fuck Off", "Drug Me", "[[Music/ElvisPresley Viva Las Vegas]]", "Hellnation", "This Could Be Anywhere (This Could Be Everywhere)", "A Growing Boy Needs His Lunch", "MTV - Get Off the Air", "Rambozo the Clown", "Triumph of the Swill", and so on. "KillThePoor" comes close but just misses out due to a "tonight" at the end of each line, as do "Terminal Preppie" (which starts out with "I'm a") and "Bleed for Me" (which has a "C'mon"). This seems to be a favourite trope of Music/JelloBiafra's, as he also used it in "Attack of the Peackeepers", "Power Is Boring", "Yuppie Cadillac", and other songs.
* "Love Stinks" by Music/TheJGeilsBand
* Mary Epworth's "Black Doe"
