Now with alphabetized goodness!

I know there are ten thousand songs with the name Johnny in the title, and I'm not going to attempt to list them all. Well, maybe I will later.
Also, this list does not have any titles such as "Mr." or "Dr." unless they have a male name to go with that appellation. :) So "Mr. Big Stuff" will not work because "Big Stuff" is not a recognized male name. However, "St. Matthew" will.

The Real Slim Shady - Eminem
'97 Bonnie and Clyde - Eminem
Paul - Eminem
Ken Kaniff - Eminem
Elvis Presley Blues - Gilian Welch
Mr Limousine Driver - Grand Funk Railroad
Dr Brown - Stan Webb
Stevie Ray Blues - Stevie Wonder
Little Johnny Jewel - Television
William It Was Really Nothing - The Smiths
Shakespeare's Sister - The Smiths
Roll Over Beethoven - The Beatles
Ballad Of Hollis Brown - Bob Dylan
Just Like Tom Thumb Blues - Bob Dylan
Mr Tambourine Man - Bob Dylan
Rambling Gambling Willie - Bob Dylan
Talkin' John Bich Paranoid Bues - Bob Dylan
Who Killed Davey More - Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan's Blues - Bob Dylan
My Brother Jake - Free
Muddy Waters - Free
Muddy Waters Blues - Free (different song from 'Muddy Waters' above)
Mr Big - Free
Crazy Man Michael - Sandy Denny
John The Gun - Sandy Denny
Joe Harper Saturday Morning - Van Morrison
Jackie Wilson Said (I'm In Heaven When You Smile) - Van Morrison

Oh, excellent! Thank you! I've appended your list to mine.
