Sit N Spin Celeb Inspired Songs

Sit And Spin!! Facts You Probably Didn't Know About Cleb-Inspired songs!
Mechanicallive

Diffuser.fm came out with a list of 10 Facts You Probably Didn't Know About Celebrity-Inspired Songs. http://bit.ly/17P6RnK

Foo Fighters -- 'I'll Stick Around' The controversial Courtney Love has made some enemies over the years, and some of those people have written songs about her -- like the Foo Fighters' 'I'll Stick Around' ...

The Velvet Underground -- 'Femme Fatale' Velvet Underground pal and manager Andy Warhol asked Lou Reed to write a song about his muse Edie Sedgwick. He turned in the classic 'Femme Fatale' about the troubled actress.

Sheryl Crow -- 'My Favorite Mistake' While Sheryl Crow insists she'll never reveal whom 'My Favorite Mistake' is about, almost all signs point to her affair with Eric Clapton.

John Lennon -- 'How Do You Sleep?' After Paul McCartney took a few pointed jabs at John Lennon on his solo album 'Ram,' his former Beatles bandmate responded with the biting 'How Do You Sleep?'

Nine Inch Nails -- 'Starf---ers, Inc.' Trent Reznor and Marilyn Manson had a fight shortly after Reznor produced Manson's 'Antichrist Superstar,' so the Nine Inch Nails frontman wrote 'Starf---ers, Inc.' about him. They eventually patched things up, and Manson appeared in the song's video.

Courtney Love -- 'But Julian, I'm a Little Older Than You' When Courtney Love isn't pissing people off, she's lusting after them. Like she does on 'But Julian, I'm a Little Older Than You,' which is about Strokes singer Julian Casablancas.

311 -- 'Amber'311's Nick Hexum once dated Nicole Scherzinger, the main singer of the Pussycat Dolls. She's the inspiration for their hit 'Amber.'

Derek and the Dominos -- 'Layla' Model Pattie Boyd was married to George Harrison when the Beatles guitarist began collaborating with Eric Clapton, who grew so infatuated with her that he wrote 'Layla' in her honor. She later left Harrison and married Clapton.

The Babyshambles -- 'Katy'The Babyshambles' 'Katy' is about frontman Pete Doherty's troubled, chaotic and volatile relationship with model Kate Moss.

INXS -- 'Suicide Blonde'After Kylie Minogue dyed her hair platinum blonde, her boyfriend, INXS' late Michael Hutchence, wrote 'Suicide Blonde' about it.
