Thanks.  It was an idea I had a while ago but it took me ages to find songs that mention people in the lyrics but not in the title.  Then I lost the piece of paper I'd written my ideas on!!

Great quiz karen!

I can see a few but I'll limit myself to my favourite:

#16 (Julie) goes with #3 (Gordon - the moron) in "Jilted John" by Jilted John.

#1 Lenny (Bruce) and #13 Leonard (Bernstein) both appear in "It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" by R.E.M.

My guess would be Scotty.  I could ask my kids (they had to sing it at school) but they're all asleep.

No.  It's not a song by Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson.  It is a fairly recent song that mentions "Paul" and Michael Jackson"

Let's correct that to

It's a fairly recent song that mentions "Peter" and "Michael Jackson"


God knows what I was thinking of when I wrote down the lyrics  :-[
