Songs which mention other bands/artists even though they aren't literally mentioning those bands/artists
Alison Moyet - Love Resurrection:
"Show me one direction
I will not question again
For a warm injection
Is all I need to calm the pain"
Was "inspired" (!) to start this thread by Tom Ewing's Popular blog where he reviews all the number ones.. he's now up to a song called "The Real Thing." Not the "You to Me are Everything" guys but that bathroom fitter from Oxford or something, Tony Bart-Williams I think he was called who somehow got to number 1 in May 1994..
