Top 10 Songs That Mention Real Persons In the Title
The Top Ten
Dante - a major Italian poet of the late Middle Ages. - Metal_Treasure
Vlad III Dracula, a historical figure - Metal_Treasure
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
I saw a parody of this called Rock Me I'm A Danish.
P.S This song is amazing! - RiverClanRocks
Quotes from the lyrics:
He was a Punker
He had debts, for he drank
But all the women loved him
(And they shouted):
Come and rock me Amadeus
Baby, baby, do it to me, rock me
He was a Superstar
He was popular
He was so exalted
Excatly that was his flair
He was a virtuoso
Was a rock idol
Women loved his punk - Metal_Treasure
Known as the "Dirty Little Coward" that killed his gang leader Jesse James. Good Song and lyrics
This has to be the catchiest song of all time. IT WON'T LEAVE MY HEAD. - IronSabbathPriest
I would recommend 2 metal covers (I heard of this song thanks to them):
Ten Masked Men - Rasputin (death metal cover);
Turisas - Rasputin.
Both music and lyrics are really catchy:
"Ra Ra Rasputin, lover of the Russian Queen". - Metal_Treasure
A semi-biographical song about Grigori Rasputin.
"RA RA RASPUTIN:
Lover of the Russian queen -
There was a cat that really was gone.
RA RA RASPUTIN
Russia's greatest love machine" - Metal_Treasure
Jesse James - he was an American outlaw, gang leader, bank robber, train robber, and murderer from the state of Missouri and the most famous member of the James-Younger Gang. - Metal_Treasure
A great prog metal instrumental piece that incorporates direct quotes from Mozart. - Metal_Treasure
Eddie Vedder - the singer of Pearl Jam. - Metal_Treasure
Good song but I have no idea why it's called this - Himalayansalt
It's because the song sounds like the theme from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly- which, of course, Clint Eastwood starred in. - Gg2000
It refers to Mick Jagger, from The Rolling Stones. I actually like the Stones and the idea to write a song about Mick Jagger more than this song. - Metal_Treasure
A band named after Nikola Tesla wrote a song about Thomas Edison. This has to be the most scientific rock combination of all time!
"He was electromagnetic, completely kinetic". - Metal_Treasure
This is a Falco cover but maybe I like it better because it's kinda "metalized". Edguy covered the original version in German. - Metal_Treasure
Yngwie is crazy about 3 things: metal, classical music and Ferrari.
He calls his car Amadeus (made - Ferrari Quattro Valvole).
So Yngwie wrote this metal piece mixing all the things he loves. - Metal_Treasure
Boney M metal cover. - Metal_Treasure
