Cuz I've got Jesus and Bocephus
Bocephus refers to American country singer-songwriter and musician, Hank Williams, Jr., son of country music legend, Hank Williams. His father nicknamed him Bocephus (after Grand Ole Opry comedian Rod Brasfield's ventriloquist dummy).
Williams began his career by following in his famed father's footsteps until he challenged the country music establishment with a blend of country, rock, and blues that made him a legend in his own right, earning him considerable recognition and popularity both inside and outside the country music industry.

Listening to the wind of change
The Scorpions song "Winds Of Change" is featured in the widely controversial film The Interview. The dark comedy basically explores the toppling of Kim Jong-un, the supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (a.k.a. North Korea), by a sleazy reality TV host (James Franco) and his equally unscrupulous friend and producer (Seth Rogan).
It has sparked an outcry from that country's military regime in the way it portrays the treatment of their own people at the expense of trying to become a top nuclear power on the world stage.

Can't you come out to play
Released in 1982, this is Elton and lyricist Bernie Taupin's musical tribute to John Lennon, who was shot and killed outside his New York apartment one and a half years earlier.
Lennon and John were close friends, and in 1974, Lennon appeared on Elton's single cover of the Beatles "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," the B-side of which was Lennon's "One Day at a Time".
After Lennon's death, John was concerned that a tribute song to the late Beatle would be "clumsy" ---until he saw Taupin's lyrics.
The song is titled "Empty Garden", as Lennon's last live performance was at Madison Square Garden (ironically with Elton John in 1974). It has been said that the line "Can't you come out to play?" is a reference to Lennon's song "Dear Prudence."

She keeps Moet et Chandon
In a pretty cabinet
"Let them eat cake", she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
Building a remedy
For Kruschev and Kennedy
At anytime an invitation
You can't decline
Moët et Chandon is one of the world's largest champagne producers and a prominent champagne house. The company currently holds a Royal Warrant to supply champagne to Elizabeth II, of England. The winery was established in 1743 by Claude Moët, and has supplied monarchs around the world with fine champagne ever since.
Moreover, the Moët surname was prestigious before the winery's establishment; King Charles VII ennobled brothers Jean and Nicolas Moët (Claude's ancestors) in 1446.

King Louis XVI kept his wife, Marie Antoinette, content with a steady flow of bubbly hoping that would keep her nose out of his affairs of state, but to no avail. Her callas remark, "Let then eat cake" when asked about feeding the humble masses of France, went viral and eventually led to the King & Queen's fate in the neck slot of the guillotine.
