Music "quiz"

Yes, well I know I said I wouldn't do anymore, but this one is inspired by a radio ad that's being aired at the moment:
Can you name any hits, from any era, in which the title is not mentioned in the song? an example given is Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. The ad also mentions that that particular song was a hit twice, if you've heard the ad there are several others.
But can you name any others? I don't have a list to work from, or to judge but, I thought it might get the ol' grey matter working. This of course must be songs and not instrumentals.
I would suggest that multiple hits as the example above are not admissible, unless its a completely different song with a common title.
I'm away for a couple of weeks and off-line, but I might get a sneaky peek tomorrow. One thing though, I'm not sure as I haven't tried it but, I suspect this might not be googleable, but I'm sure pierre will let us know...AT A LATER TIME PLEASE PIERRE.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Music "quiz"

Quick look:
Uhmm! you guys have beaten me hands down, could only think of two others and you've named them both (Unchained Melody, 59th etc.)
Bet there's some more though...
Mrs Petlew suggested the National Anthem, but I think that is actually called "God Save the Queen" ?Huh
