Song Titles featuring Artists

Panama Hat 9" x 6" Acrylic on mount board


As I painted this still life, the song Panama Hat by Eric Bibb was buzzing around my head.  And that got me thinking of songs with artists names in the title.  There are probably dozens about art in general ( like Art School by The Jam) but I wanted to create a YouTube playlist of just those that name checked an artist.  I came up with these off the top of my head but  I would have liked to have found a few more.   I’m sure they must be out there.  Please tell me if you have any favourites I’ve missed.
