Top Ten Songs With a Person's Name in the Title

PetSounds

The Top Ten

1 Hey Jude - The Beatles

My favourite Beatles song!

2 Layla - Derek and the Dominoes

Very good song, but after the guitar part it's always disappointing

Patti Boyd must have ben quite a woman. Two of the greatest love songs of all time were written about her, Eric Clapton's Layla and George Harrison's Something. - PetSounds

3 Eleanor Rigby - The Beatles

Paul McCartney at his best...

4 Angie - The Rolling Stones

One of the all time great classical songs. Should be in the top three.

5 Proud Mary - Creedence Clearwater Revival
6 Helena - My Chemical Romance

Helena is a really emotional song speaking about the Ways' grandmother Elena who passed on. I like it. It is amazing, and Gerard's voice really does it justice.

7 Roxanne - The Police
8 Romeo and Juliet - Dire Straits
9 My Name is Mud - Primus
10 867-5309 / Jenny - Tommy Tutone

@PetSounds - There are many songs on this list that mention real persons: Beethoven, Elvis, Uma Thurman, Mick Jagger, Clint Eastwood, Steve McQueen, Jesse James, John and Yoko... - Metal_Treasure

@Metal_Treasure - This is an ancient list and that's an ancient comment! All those were added afterward. - PetSounds

The only song on this list which undoubtedly mentions a real person. - PetSounds

I love this song. No doubt that it should be #1 - PositronWildhawk

Really like this song - Curti2594

15 Billie Jean - Michael Jackson
16 My Sharona - The Knack
17 Vincent - Don McLean

Don't know why this song was ranked so far down on the list. It was written as a tribute to Vincent Van Gogh with the opening line Starry, Starry Night dedicated to his painting 'The Starry Night'. One of the great classical songs.
