I would like a show themed on songs that mention famous people in the lyrics... not just one famous person... but a minimum of three... to get the ball rolling, I would suggest the following...

We Didn't Start The Fire - Billy Joel
Everybody's Making It Big But Me - Dr. Hook
Songs That Make A Difference - The Highwaymen
Garden Party - Ricky Nelson

... but we can't have a show with just four songs... so... your suggestions please!

Apparently someone at Theme Time Radio Hour is listening thickboy. One of the just-announced themes is... "Famous People."

Wow... great stuff... I hope I get at least a name-check if nothing else... or even better... a great big 'fee'... it just goes to prove what I have always thought... when thickboy talks Dylan listens.
