i.e. the least likely/most cumbersome title that actually does appear in the lyric.

Stevie Wonder "As"

It's mentioned a lot in a barely noticeable way!

james brown and morrissey pwn this thread

get up, get into it, get involved
Hot Pants (She Got To Use What She Got To Get What She Wants)
You Got To Have A Job (If You Don't Work You Can't Eat)
and my favorite... I Don't Want Nobody To Give Me Nothing (Open Up The Door I'll Get It Myself)

We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful
The More You Ignore Me, The Closer I Get
That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore
The Boy With The Thorn In His Side
Please, Please Please Let Me Get What I Want
...and pretty much every song on STRANGEWAYS: Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before, Rush and a Push and the Land Is Ours, Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me, etc.

"Die Another Day," by Madge? Most James Bond themes?

I don't see James Brown in this category. Normally it sounds to me like his songs start with a jam and then the title becomes whatever JB says the most. Or, as in "Mother Popcorn," the title is the two words he says the most stuck together. I mean, what kind of freak sits down to write a song called "Hot Pants Pt. 1 (She Got to Use What She Got to Get What She Wants)"?

Not a hit, but I couldn't help thinking of Husker Du's New Day Rising when I saw this thread.

New day rising, new day rising, new day rising etc etc

Is "Reasons to be Cheerful Part Three" the only 'part' song that qualifies?
