Songs where the name of the album it's from are in the lyrics

But it’s not the title of the song.

Two examples:

Teen Spirit: ‘I found it hard, it’s hard to find, oh well whatever nevermind

Love Machine: ‘I need a squeeze a day, instead of this negligee, what will the neighbours say?

Must be loads?

Every pixies album except trompe le monde has this I think

Well, the pixies albums that exist that is

We are hummingbirds who are just not going to move
And there’s good news for people who love bad news

The sun came up with no conclusions
Flowers sleeping in their beds
The city’s cemeteries humming
I’m wide awake, it’s morning

was convinced elvis costello’s 2nd album did this but extensive research reveals that he sings about “this year’s GIRL” and “LAST year’s model” - he never mentions “This Year’s Model”.

hth.

Ah but his first album DOES do this

Simple minds and Book of brilliant things ,sparkle in the rain .

I also KNEW there was a Neil Young one and have been frantically searching the lyrics in Freedom. I think I should sit this one out.

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear.
And if the band you’re in starts playing different tunes
I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon.

It’s an anthem in a vacuum on a hyperstation
Daydreaming days in a daydream nation

You were right about Freedom:

And when the melody
Through the window called
It echoed in the courtyard
And whispered in the halls
He played it through the night
She knew he had to go
There was something about freedom
He thought he didn’t know

eurgh - I give up.

Deftones and around the fur.

Edit: though it probably doesn’t count of there’s a song on the album that shares it’s name?
