More Info:
  • The "incorrect song title" is a snippet of the lyrics that a listener might reasonably have guessed was the title of the song... either because it was frequently repeated, or a key part of the refrain, or the first line of the song. The correct song title never appears *precisely* as it is in the lyrics. In most cases, the key words in the title don't appear at all (a few minor exceptions, and one notable one which qualified for this quiz on a technicality).
