Another one from the 90's is "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls. That word is never uttered in the song.

One that springs to mind is Unchained Melody by the Righteous Brothers, which has absolutely no mention whatsoever of the title in its lyrics.

Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In a Cave and Grooving With a Pict ~ Pink Floyd...is not mentioned in the song,at least I don't think,there is some kind of jibberish that I can't make out.I still want to play this one for my parents!

One of my many favorites from the last decade is "In The Blood" by Better Than Ezra. Glad to see they are making somewhat of a comeback.I hope to hear more from them.

"In The Blood" by Better Than Ezra. Great song by a cool band. Hats off to you crotalus! "Space Oddity" by David Bowie, never mentions a space oddity in the lyrics.

And another one I just remembered:

Calypso, by Spiderbait. It does not mention "Calypso" anywhere in the lyrics.
