* The {{Bside}} "Tombigbee" by Music/ToriAmos begins with almost these exact words. It most likely refers to the plight of Native Americans under the early expansionist American government.
--->To you it's another day
--->To me it's a grim reaping
--->Just another shooting star
--->Hanging on your wire
* The extended version of Rob Cantor's "Shia [=LaBeouf=]" (which, as the name suggests tells the story of an unnamed protagonist's conflict with Creator/ShiaLaBeouf, who in the song is a cannibalistic serial killer) features the lines:
--->''Legendary fight with Shia [=LaBeouf=]\\
Normal Tuesday night for Shia [=LaBeouf=]''
* Music/PhilCollins' "In The Air Tonight" inverts this, in that the singer, the one wronged, recognizes that the person to whom he is singing may not remember the incident that he can't forget:
--->I've seen your face before my friend,\\
But I don't know if you know who I am ...
* "Just Another Day" by Lisa Dames is a story of a woman who was raised by a single mother, who herself dies in a car accident soon afterward. She uses the chorus to show that her loss isn't that big in the grand scheme of things, and that she will be okay no matter what happens:
--->No one called from the White House to say\\
The president's making this a holiday\\
People still ridin' in the subway alone\\
It didn't stop anybody's big league game\\
Or sinners from fallin' on their knees to pray\\
Traffic's still movin' real slow all over LA\\
For the rest of the world, oh yeah\\
It was just another day
* "The Entertainer" by Billy Joel is a non-villainous (probably) example from the point of view of the one doing the deeds:
--->I am the entertainer; I've been all around the world
--->I've played all kinds of palaces, laid all kinds of girls
--->I can't remember faces, don't remember names
--->Ah, but what the hell, y'know it's just as well
--->'Cause after a while and a thousand miles
--->It all becomes the same
* The Jack of Hearts from Music/BobDylan's ''[[Music/BloodOnTheTracks Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts]]'' apparently has a very interesting love life, according to the lost verse (which appears in many cover versions of the song, most notably that of Music/JoanBaez):
--->Lily's arms were locked around the man that she dearly loved to touch,\\
She forgot all about the man she couldn't stand who hounded her so much.\\
"I've missed you so," she said to him, and he felt she was sincere,\\
But just beyond the door he felt jealousy and fear.\\
Just another night in the life of the Jack of Hearts.
