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".

Vigilantes of Love's, "Welcome to Struggleville"
The Lyrics:
She's undressed to the nines, although a few pounds fatter.
She's got Pavlov's bells on her ankles and wrists, she coming at you with her platter
I stole down to the waterfront to escape the desert heat
What on earth you gotta do around her to try and get yourself a drink
Heard John the Baptist preaching
Who They Mention:
physiologist Ivan Pavlov
John the Baptist
