Songs with elision of /t/

When a /t/ occurs between two other consonants, the /t/ sound is omitted.

 Lust for Life

 I Don’t Mind

 I Can’t Control Myself  

 Fast Cars 

  Fast Car

 Castles Made of Sand

 Won’t get fooled again 

 Save the Last Dance for Me

  Perfect Day

  Just Friends 

You Sent Me Flying 


  Doesn’t Make it Alright

 Don’t Believe What You Read


  Don’t Bring Harry


 Just Like a Woman

 Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

Can’t Buy Me Love


   Please Mr Postman

 Don’t Stop the Music

... and many, many more. All the song titles below also have an elided /t/. 
Can you guess what they are?
