Let's cut to the chase. Below you will find song lyrics, with missing lines as indicated. What they have in common is that the missing line contains one (or more) proper names.
Fill in the line, and name the song and artist if you can. Cheating is ok, I really don't care.

She said, 'Last night Bobby got a little bit out of hand'..."
