Same Name, Different Song

There are a bunch. Covers and remixes don't count, so "Walk This Way" is not allowed. How many can you find?

Here are some I found:
Heartbreaker - Led Zeppelin, Pat Benatar, Mariah Carey

Gloria - The Doors, Laura Branigan

Lady - Styx, Kenny Rogers

Yes I know the Doors covered Gloria, but it still counts because Laura Branigans song isn't a cover. Similar titles don't count either, so Taylor Swift's "Wildest Dreams" is not a match for the Moody Blues "Your Wildest Dreams".

Well, I guess we know who the over achiever on this forum is! 😆
Yeah, well, that's just like your opinion, man.

Actually, with iTunes it was pretty quick to make that list. I just had to order my songs by title and scroll through them. It's pretty easy to scan a list for duplicate names once you do it for a minute or so.

So, what's the record for different songs with the same name? So far, it looks to be six songs for "One Love".

U2 and Sister Hazel also have songs called One Love...

Interesting topic- according to website Indie88:

HERE ARE SOME OF THE MOST COMMON SONG TITLES OF ALL TIME
By chelsea brimstin, 21.02.2019

I WANT YOU
The straightforward, relatable concept of “wanting” is at the forefront when it comes to common song titles, with the phrase “I Want You” reaching the top of the list. Bob Dylan, Marvin Gaye, Elvis Costello, KISS, Janet Jackson, The Kooks, Common, Cheap Trick, Savage Garden, Mary J. Blige, Bon Jovi, Third Eye Blind, The Beatles, and way way more have used this phrase as a song title, and surely there are plenty more to come.

TONIGHT
Tonight is definitely near the top of the most common songs of all time, with major artists using the title like Smashing Pumpkins, New Kids On The Block, David Bowie, Def Leppard, Jonas Brothers, The Raspberries, Kings of Leon, Blondie, Elton John, and more!

ANGEL
One word titles are pretty common, and “Angel” is a song name that has popped up over and over again in a variety of different genres. Plenty of artists have named songs “Angel,” such as Aerosmith, Fleetwood Mac, Shaggy, Diddy, Aretha Franklin, Lionel Richie, Pharrell Williams, Sarah McLachlan, Jimi Hendrix, Jack Johnson, Natasha Bedingfield, Kate Voegele, and The Weeknd.

CHANGES
Ch-ch-ch-changes. One thing about music sure hasn’t changed, and that’s the fact that this word has popped up again and again as song titles for legendary tracks and underrated gems. Some artists that have a song called “Changes” include David Bowie, Black Sabbath, the Zombies, Jane’s Addiction, Santana, Tupac, and 3 Doors Down.

SUNDAY MORNING
Sunday Mornings often come with a bittersweet feeling, considering you can still sleep in or enjoy the weekend, but you wake up knowing that Monday is on its way. Many artists have taken that familiar concept and turned it into something new including the Velvet Underground, No Doubt, Maroon 5, K-OS, Julian Lennon, and Earth, Wind And Fire.

BABY
Another one word wonder, “Baby” has made its way onto our list of some of the most common song titles in musical history. This simple, four letter word has been used time and time again by a variety of artists such as Iggy Pop, Faust, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Ashanti, LL Cool J, Blake Shelton, Eminem, and, of course, Justin Bieber.

CRAZY
It’s crazy how frequently this word is used as a song title. With tracks from music giants like Willie Nelson, Pylon, Aerosmith, Gnarls Barkley, Seal, The Moffats, Simple Plan, and Tove Lo, it’s no wonder this title keeps coming up over and over again.

STAY
Last but not least is “Stay,” which is a song title used by tons of different artists including Rihanna, Barry Manilow, Pink Floyd, Tears For Fears, Post Malone, and David Bowie. Most of these tracks revolve around begging someone to stick around when they’re ready to leave, which, by the looks of the variety of artists, seems to be a timeless concept.

It wasn't meant to be derogatory. Was just having fun with the list size. Sorry if it came off that way.
