Name Songs

I'm in the process of another sort of odd song compilation -

I'm looking for songs which address their subject by name

there are a ton of these out there, I know, but for some reason my mind keeps jamming up after I list a few. Plus, I know that the variety of people's taste and experience with music here will introduce me to some cool new (to me) songs if I ask for help


The one's I've thought of are:

Amie - Damien Rice
Sherry - Franki Valley and the Four Seasons
Dawn - Franki Valley and the Four Seasons
Mandy - Barry Manilow
Layla - Eric Clapton
Me and Bobby McGee - Janis Joplin
You can call me Al - Paul Simon
Miss Jackson - Outkast
Daniel - Elton John


Can you help me out?
