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".

While Levon, Levon slowly dies
