Cool, man!

Great list!

I'll toss in Dire Straits' "Romeo and Juliet."

Also, I really like "Hair" and "What a Piece of Work is Man" is straight up Bard, homie!

Cheers!

The hardest rocking? "The Fool And Me" by Robin Trower.

Well, that kind of ran out of gas.

How about we add literary references in general?

I'm not a Police fan, but I liked the line...."Just like the, old man in, that book by Nabokov..." from Don't Stand So Close to Me.

John Cale:

"You're having tea with Graham Greene
In a colored costume of your choice..."

And that's two "Paris 1919" references for me!
