Songs with title themes/lines that are barely mentioned in the song itself?

Total eclipse of the Heart.. I think that line is mentioned only once or twice in the whole song,

    Actually, Total Eclipse of the Heart is said several times in the Jim Steinman composition. Compare that to Barry Manilow's "Weekend In New England", which never says New England at all. Led Zeppelin's "D'yer Maker" is a humorous stab at the reggae sound of the track, and is never said. And The Who perform Baba O'Riley, and the chorus appears to be "Teenage Wasteland" while the title is never used at all.

    These titles are never in the songs:

    Dead of Winter by Eels

    Wraith Pinned to the Mist and Other Games by of Montreal

    Won't Get Fooled Again by The Who (it's "we don't get fooled again" in the song)

    Santa Monica by Everclear

    I can think of several songs that have titles that are NEVER used in the lyrics at all.  "Sukiyaki" is one.
