If you have song lyrics that name check celebrities for a song use the below form to send it in. No sexually explicit entries. They will not be added.

I'm not talking about songs that just name someone (there's more than I could ever list). I'm referring to songs that name someone famous or well known. For instance the Beastie Boys "name check" Abe Vigoda in "Posse in Effect".

Chuck Prophet's, "Barely Exist"

Now that kid might grow up to play in the symphony
or be the next LeBron James
And that beats dying slowing in the heat
on a cattle farm, a face without a name
No two ways about it.
Who They Mention:
NBA star LeBron James

Chuck Prophet's, "There She Goes, My Beautiful World"
The Lyrics:
John Willmot penned his poetry
riddled with the pox
Nabakov wrote on index cards
at a lectern, in his socks
St. John of the Cross did his best stuff
while imprisoned in a box
And Johnny Thunders was half alive
When he wrote Chinese Rocks
Who They Mention:
poet John Willmot
author Vladimir Nabakov
saint St. John of the Cross
musician Johnny Thunders
