Swinging Saturdays #26 ~ Artists who sing about artists!

Swinging saturdays is a musical meme hosted by Ice Cold Passion, to share our passion for music. The goal is to make a top 5 (or Top 10) for whatever genre or artist you like or get creative and share a theme based music top 5. For example a bookish soundtrack, funny songs, song to listen to on a rainy day top 5.
So my mom challenged me to think out of the box so to say... Do something different with my top 5, she came up with the idea to do a top 5 about artist who sing about other artists in their songs. And let me tell you, this is not easy to put together! It took me a long time to find these songs.  So here's my top five artist who sing about other artists!

1. Acda en de Munnik ~ Laat Me Slapen

This was the first song that came to mind, it's about the death of John Lennon. One line says: " Im sorry, Im sorry mother, John Lennon was murdered." There are many references to the Beatles songs in this song!

Dit is het eerste liedje waar ik aan moest denken, het gaat over de dood van John Lennon.

"De hele nacht de Beatles mam
En om elk uur dat woord.
Het spijt me mam het spijt me zo
John Lennon is vermoord"

2. Ed Sheeran ~ You Need Me, But I Don't Need You

"Times at The Enterprise when some fella filmed me ‘A young singer-writer like Gabriella Cilmi’ "
That's one reference but there is another: 
"Cause with the lyrics I'll be aiming it right I won't stop till my name's in lights At stadium heights with Damien Rice"

3. Anouk ~ Tom Waits

4. Taylor Swift ~ Tim McGraw

5. P!nk ~ Stupid Girls

So that's it for my Top 10!!!
