Phil Collins wrote this for Tarzan but stated it was really about his daughter, Lily Collins, and refers to it as her song. Awww.

Cinderella – Mac Miller

This song was about some intimate moments with Ariana Grande.

You’re So Vain – Carly Simon

Revealed that at least the second verse is about Warren Beatty, though Mick Jagger, Robert Redford and James Taylor have been rumored as other sources of inspiration, though never confirmed.

Inspired by Miley Cyrus, though I’m not sure they ever kissed. But a man can dream.

You Oughta Know – Alanis Morissette

Everyone knows this is about Dave Coulier but I have to put it on the list. And there’s definitely a line about getting a beej at a theater too, so think about that next time you fire up a Full House rerun. Uncle freaking Joey.
