Best songs with something in the title

After listening to a few songs with specific words in the title, I’ve come to the conclusion that nearly any word can be utilized in the context of music as long as it accurately captures the subject matter and feelings of the composer. When it comes to music, the word “something” doesn’t have a predetermined meaning; instead, its interpretation depends on the lyrical context and the artist’s intention. The cool songs listed below all have names that contain the word “something” in the title.

7 Songs with something in the title:

1. “Say Something” by Kylie Minogue

Kylie Minogue - Say Something (Official Video)

Ranking first on our list of songs with something in the title is this first single to be released from Kylie Minogue’s forthcoming project, titled Disco. On July 23 of the same year, the song was distributed commercially by BMG and Darenote as part of the official release.

This song is addressed to the singer’s potential partner in a love relationship. The singer is portrayed as a person who is looking for love throughout the song’s lyrics, which follow this subject. And she believes that she has finally found that one true love in her life.

Consequently, she is not only communicating her own powerful emotions, but she is also attempting to understand how he feels about her. To put it another way, she wants him to “say something” about what he thinks about the two of them becoming a couple so that she can make a decision. And apart from that narrative, the song comes to a close on a note in which the vocalist appears to be advocating the concept of universal love in general.

2. “Something’s Got To Give” by Beastie Boys (ft. Mark Nishita & James Bradley Jr)

Lyrically, this song is pretty straightforward, and it is exactly the kind of song that one would anticipate hearing from the Beastie Boys. And “Something’s Got to Give” has been categorized as an anti-war song, a stance that is made most obvious at the beginning and end of the song’s lyrics.

But to be more explicit, it does not appear that there are any references to the war itself anywhere in the text. Instead, the focus in those particular areas is placed on its antithesis, peace.

For example, in the very first line of the song, the performer “wishes for peace between the races” and envisions a time when “we shall all be one.” Then, in his advocacy for peace, he becomes more intimate by posing the question, “why fight yourself?”

Therefore, he is against fighting even within one’s own mind and spirit. And if you’re among the readers who think that a particular phrase might sound like it’s making a reference to Eastern mysticism, you should know that you might be right. As a matter of fact, it has been pointed out that this song was inspired by Buddhist as well as Christian philosophy.

3. “Is There Something I Should Know?” by Duran Duran

It seems as though the vocalist of this song is speaking directly to a potential love interest, given the structure of the song’s lyrics. The two of them are involved in a relationship that is fraught with difficulties, particularly from an emotional standpoint. In addition, the fundamental impression that is being conveyed is that the vocalist is unable to cope with the circumstances.

Because, despite the fact that it is alluded to in the title, it appears that he does not genuinely know what it is that is upsetting his sweetheart in the first place. However, he is aware that she is quite unhappy, despite the fact that the lady does not appear to be aware of this fact herself.

And considering everything, it seems as though he may be the unfortunate victim of an unreciprocated love, which means that he has the impression that his darling does not feel the same way about him as he does for her. But regardless of the outcome, it appears like the stress of the situation is driving him completely insane.

4. “Something for the Weekend” by The Divine Comedy

The Divine Comedy - Something For The Weekend

When putting the story of “Something for the Weekend” into chronological order, one needs to use a little bit of imagination and do some cutting and pasting. However, the language that is employed is not very complicated, and the narrative is not overly complicated either from a poetic aspect.

There is a man and a lady who are the principal subjects of this song. To put it in the simplest terms, the male character is a player. And it would appear that he is so self-assured in his reputation as a womanizer that he never really considers the idea that the female character, i.e. the lady he believes he is on the verge of sleeping with, is already aware of his tricks and tactics.

When however this woman tried to persuade him that “there is something in the woodshed,” he initially appears unwilling to accept her, which suggests that he may have anticipated that something was amidst when she told him that.

And what’s even more crucial is the fact that apparently at the same moment that she makes this request, he feels an inner prompting “to come clean” to her, which means disclosing that he’s a playa as opposed to the dedicated lover that he’s claiming to be in order to have sex with her.

5. “Something Special” by Pop Smoke

Perhaps a more appropriate name for the track “Something Special” would be “someone special,” given that Pop Smoke is referring to a specific person when he uses the term “something special.” And this individual is a potential romantic partner. To get more specific, the rapper considers her to be someone who is better than the other ladies he has dealt with in that aspect and considers her to be superior to them.

As a consequence of this, the words of the song center on the many qualities that he finds endearing about her, thereby functioning as an expression of his profound affection for her.

6. “I Think There’s Something You Should Know” by The 1975

The 1975 - I Think There's Something You Should Know (Visualiser)

The vocalist, singer, and co-writer of this song for The 1975, Matt Healy, has stated that the song is partially based on him suffering from imposter syndrome. This is a highly complicated mental illness that affects a lot of people. However, what it really boils down to in terms of the context of this song is the singer’s experience of feeling as though he possesses two distinct personalities, if you will. Or, to put it another way, he does not feel “like himself,” but rather “like somebody else.”

This is an immediate consequence of his celebrity status. Because, as is elaborated upon in the second line, the “wealth” that he and other prominent individuals like him have acquired has come at the expense of “their mental health.”

When looking for a clear interpretation of this song, it seems like Matt is once again referring to the bad effects that having a public profile can have on one’s mental health.

In the end, the title of the song refers to this as the overall concept. Listeners will learn that despite his celebrity, the singer still has his own personal troubles that he must deal with, which are in fact the outcome of such concerns. As a way of letting the listener know that he still has to cope with these challenges, he says this out loud.

7. Frida ` I know There’s Something

Concluding our list of songs with something in the title is “I Know There’s Something Going On” by Frida. The internationally acclaimed Swedish musical group ABBA featured Frida during their early years as a band member. Additionally, the lyrics of the songs that are typically produced by this band are straightforward, which is one of the many positive aspects of their work. The song “I Know There’s Something Going On” by Frida fits this description perfectly.

In point of fact, just looking at the title of the work should be sufficient to give you some idea of the topic upon which it is centered. To put it another way, the other woman in her intimate relationship is cheating on her spouse.

In the first verse, she outlines the evidence that she has gathered to back up her assertion that such a thing is true. Consequently, despite the fact that her partner has never admitted publicly or directly to her that he is seeing someone else, the soprano is nevertheless able to determine that “there’s something going on.”

The emotional anguish that she is experiencing as a result of having this truth brought home to her is the primary focus of the second stanza. The most difficult aspect is having to come to terms with the ‘loss of a friend,’ which suggests that the importance that her partner plays in her life extends beyond the sphere of romantic relationships.

Therefore, the vocalist is essentially getting ready for what is going to happen. According to her assessment, there is ample evidence to suggest that the person she is romantically involved with is seeing someone else while concurrently losing interest in her. Therefore, she is aware that it “won’t be long before he’s gone,” which means that the end of their relationship is unavoidable at this point in time.
