This morning Ray LaMontagne’s song “Meg White” came on my pandora mix. It’s a pretty rockin’ tune. Basically it’s a love song, but it’s for Meg White (of the White Stripes) so, as expected, it has some angst to it. I couldn’t help but think about how awesome it must be to have a famous musician write a love song with you in mind. Here’s a list of a few such songs that I’m aware of, and their targets.
Ray LaMontagne – Meg White
for… Meg White.
John Mayer – Your Body is a Wonderland
for Jennifer Love Hewitt
Apparently this is an untrue rumor. This makes me happy. John Mayer kinda creeps me out.
Eric Clapton – Layla, Wonderful Tonight, Bell Bottom Blues
George Harrison – Something
Pattie Boyd (I guess it’s Pattie Boyd FTW)
Katy Perry – I kissed a girl
inspired by a photograph of Scarlett Johansson
Alanis Morrisette – You Oughta Know
about Matt Damon (bummer) **UPDATE – see comments**
Are there any more love songs that you can think of that have a famous target?
