Top 10 Songs That Mention Real Persons In the Title


The Top TenXW

1Roll Over Beethoven - Chuck Berry
2Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth

Dante - a major Italian poet of the late Middle Ages. - Metal_Treasure

3Dracula - Iced Earth

Vlad III Dracula, a historical figure - Metal_Treasure

4The Ballad of John and Yoko - The Beatles
5Rock Me Amadeus - Falco

One hit wonder - a funny and catchy song about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

As a metalhead, I have to admit I consider this song a guilty pleasure. I heard this song for the first time in 2014 - it was a cover done by the metal band Edguy.

Then I found 2 versions done by Falco - in German and English. Lyrics are different but cool - you can find the German version with English subs. - Metal_Treasure
