Top 10 Songs with the Most Misleading Titles


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Mach's dir selbst - Silbermond

While the phrase literally means "Do it to yourself", it is usually associated with masturbation. What they actually mean is however "Mach's selbst", or "Do it yourself", the song tells you to actively fulfill your dreams instead of waiting for something to happen. No sexual undertone. - Martin_Canine

22 Wing$ - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

The song is not about wings or flying but about the craze for brands and how a man's love for shoes turns into a paranoid obsession. - Martin_Canine

23 Bitch Bad - Lupe Fiasco

While the title sounds like your typical sex anthem, the whole phrase in the chorus goes "Bitch bad, woman good, lady better, they misunderstood". - Martin_Canine

24 Unforgivable Youth - Lupe Fiasco

This great, great, great, great, great hip hop song by Lupe Fiasco is not about a young person but about the two racial crimes in American history (the genocide of the Native Americans and the slavery of the Africans). - Martin_Canine

25 Where the Wild Roses Grow - Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue

The title sounds romantic and for a long time the song also does. Until the third verse. I don't want to spoil it though. - Martin_Canine

26 Sanageyama - Dat Adam

Not a nerdy song about the anime character of the same name.
The song is about several problems and issues of the world that are eating the two vocalists up (one lyric translates to "Why are so many in love with their ego? / Why is democracy no democracy? / And why don't all beings deserve a life? "). - Martin_Canine

27 Cool Vibes - Vanilla Ninja

While I am not 100% sure what the song is about, it most definitely isn't cool vibes in the sense of a laid back mood. - Martin_Canine

28 Blue Tattoo - Vanilla Ninja

Since Vanilla Ninja's previous album "Traces of Sadness" showed them as tough and strong rock women, one could assume "Blue Tattoo" (which is their third album's title track) is about tattooed girls who love rock, motorcycle and are braver/stronger than any man they meet, right?
No, for their third album they adopted an orchestral rock outfit, and "Blue Tattoo" is about an ancient prophecy, with the blue tattoo being some sort of mystical artefact (in the music video, it's a blue stone with ornaments and a crystal in the middle). - Martin_Canine

29 Seasons in the Sun - Terry Jacks

Sounds like a nice song about having fun on the beach... is in fact about a man that is dying and tells his friends that they had much fun together and to remember the good times. - Martin_Canine

30 Sugar Man - Rodriguez

The Sugar Man is not someone like Willy Wonka, but a drug dealer. In the song, Rodriguez is begging the sugar man for drugs so they wash away all of his problems... - Martin_Canine

31 Metal Queen - Vanilla Ninja

The song isn't metal.
It's about a tough girl who is underestimated by the guys but in the end is stronger than them and breaks their hearts instead of the other way around. - Martin_Canine
