|Mr. Probz||Waves||Even though the title is a plural, the singular form is said in the lyrics instead (like Maroon 5's Maps and Willow Smith's Flowers). This time in "wave after wave". - JohnHowarth|
|Barbara Mandrell||Fast Lanes and Country Roads||The lyrics include the phrases "fast lane" and "country road" in the lines "I'm ready to trade the fast lane for a country road" and "And trade this fast lane for a country road", but never the plural forms and never connected with "and". For a long time, I knew this song only as the song that goes, "This can't go on forever/I need a Sunday drive". - William Ransom|
|Weezer||Undone - The Sweater Song||Not the whole title is said in the lyrics, but the word "undone" is said in "I've come undone" and the word "sweater" is said in "If you want to destroy my sweater". - JohnHowarth|
|The Cab||This City Is Contagious||It gets super close with "this city's contagious", but the contraction isn't in the title, so it doesn't count. - Insertnamehere|
|Chasing Thrill||Fast Like You||The title is not in the lyrics at all. - Jack|
|WarioWare Inc.: Mega Microgames||Four Seasons||The song is fully in Japanese. The English translation mentions the four seasons. - JohnHowarth|
|WarioWare||Drifting Away||The song is Japanese (aside from the lyric "Let's go, let's drive") - JohnHowarth|
|Mazzy Star||Flowers in December||The words "flowers" and "December" are said in "Send me your flowers of your December" and the word "in" is said in "I just want to see in your eyes" and "every man goes blind in his heart". However, the words "flowers", "in" and "December" are never together in the lyrics. - JohnHowarth|
|Schoolhouse Rock||Three Is A Magic Number||"A man and a woman had a little baby|
That makes three, that makes three in the family
It's a magic number"
There is no "is". - Lance Crackers
|Fall Out Boy||I Slept With Someone in Fall Out Boy and All I Got Was This Stupid Song Written About Me||Lyrics include "It's so fitting, so fitting of the way you are / You can't cover it up, can't cover it up! / So douse yourself in cheap perfume" and "Someone old / No one new / Feeling borrowed / Always blue", but never anything about sleeping with a Fall Out Boy member - Kerry|

|Dave Matthews Band||#41||Just the 41st song they wrote. - ctharris|
