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".
