Occasionally, in the case of bands/artists with long recording careers, you will have the case of two completely different songs with the same title issued by the same artist. Another poster already mentioned Fleetwood Mac's "Angel". Here are some other cases:

Thin Lizzy recorded two completely different songs titled "Sarah", one on 1972's "Shades of a Blue Orphanage", another on 1979's "Black Rose".

Asia, not once but twice during their career, reused song titles for completely different songs between the John Wetton and John Payne lineups. 1993's "Aria" has a song titled "Summer", which was also the title of a song under the Wetton-era album "Then and Now" (albeit the latter had a parenthetical add-on (Can't Last Too Long))". Most recently, Wetton's Asia had a song named "I Believe" on their most recent "Omega" CD, which was also the title of an outtake from the Payne era originally released on the "Archiva" compilation.

Status Quo had a song titled "Rolling Home" on 1976's "Blue For You" and "Rollin' Home" on 1985's "In The Army Now".

Bruce Springsteen recorded a song for the "Born In The USA" sessions called "Brothers Under The Bridge". He re-used the title for a completely different track in "The Ghost of Tom Joad" sessions. Neither songs, however, made their respective albums.

Although I already mentioned it, here it is again in connection with Todd's remarks. The Monkees recorded two completely different songs titled "You and I," in 1968 and 1996. The second was a cover of a song Micky and Davy had cut in 1976 as part of Dolenz, Jones, Boyce & Hart.

Motorhead had two songs, both titled "Under the Knife". Apparently, Lemmy wrote a song called "Under the Knife", then wrote another song, and realized that the lyrics were a better fit for the second one. They were released together as the B-side to their "Killed by Death" single, if I remember rightly (I used to have the 7" picture disc).

Welch and Nicks hit it off quite well. Welch still hung around with the band after Lindsey and Stevie joined. On youtube there's a performance of Bob Welch and Stevie Nicks doing Ebony Eyes at an outdoor concert.

Actually, I did a similar thread on another music forum and, on a slow work afternoon, found over a dozen Kylie Minogue tracks with the same title as other people's completely different tracks.

E.g.
Breathe - Kylie

Mick Fleetwood and Christine McVie, who were bandmates with Bob Welch when Fleetwood Mac recorded his song "Sentimental Lady", appeared on his solo version as well along with Lindsey Buckingham who joined Fleetwood Mac after Welch left. Neither John McVie, who was part of the Fleetwood Mac recording, and Stevie Nicks, who like Buckingham joined the group after Welch left, were part of the solo recording.

Also -> I Want You - Elvis Costello

Not an addition to this thread, but interesting nonetheless: Beach Boys had a song called All I Want to Do (on 20/20) and another one called All I Wanna Do (on Sunflower). They were released a little over one year apart, and are worlds different as far as style and lyrical content.

Definitely not to be confused with Barbara Streisand's.

So do The Byrds though their song was unfinished - no lyrics.

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 26, 2012 9:04:22 AM PDT
Both The Everly Brothers and Stevie Wonder have songs called Ebony Eyes.

I don't recall The Everly Brothers', but I like Stevie Wonder's "Ebony Eyes".
