    What are some songs that the title is not mentioned anywhere in the lyrics? for example Paranoid is one, what are some others?

    I suppose you could say it has lyrics, indecipherable.

    But for Pink Floyd there's also "Take Up Thy Stethoscope and Walk," "Let There Be More Light," "See-Saw," "Paint Box," "Brain Damage" . . .

    Interestingly (to me anyway) Clapton and company have been singing "Where is my badge" at the end of that song live for decades. My introduction to EC was the 24 Nights live set, and thats where I first heard it. I honestly never noticed that it wasnt like that originally. I had to go listen to the original after seeing your post :)
