    Name 10 (or 20) songs with the name of a historical figure in the title...

    1. Rock Me, Amadeus - Falco
    2. Empty Garden (Hey, Hey Johnny) - Elton John

    11. Billy The Kid - Woody Guthrie

    Does Nightshift work here? I know it was about Jackie and Marvin but their names are not in the title? Just wondering, but a good song none the less
