Walk of Fame (top 69 songs with actresses or actors in the title)


(Divas - The Site)

A funny playlist, tonight. It started while I was listening to Gorillaz's Clint Eastwood. I wondered how many songs have been named with famous actresses or actors in the title. And... well... after a quick search on Spotify... they are definitely MANY. There are hundreds of them. So, here it is a playlist of my top 69.

Rule #1: the important is the surname (i guess Primus' Wynona's Big Brown Beaver is about Winona Ryder, but I painfully excluded it because of the rule #1...)
Rule #2: names must be correct, not parodies. Just one exception: Teenagers' Starlett Johansson, because I do like that song and sometimes I like to write the rules and then play the role of the above-the-law dictator.
Rule #3: no more than one song for artist (dictatorial exception, again: Gorillaz)
Rule #4: no more than one song for actress/actor (no exceptions, this time)

Here it is the playlist. At the end, you'll find the usual link to listen to it. And for the non-Spotify users, I embedded the videos of the top 10 songs. Enjoy!
And may the Force of Hollywood be with you.
