This week's challenge is a bit of a sequel to Week's 7 challenge, except this week we are looking for songs (or titles) by bands or artists that mention other bands or artists.

"Creeque Alley" - Mamas and the Papas - McGuinn and McGuire, Sebastian...
"I Dig Rock and Roll Music" - Peter, Paul, and Mary - And when the Beatles tell you...
"When Smokey Sings" - ABC - Smokey Robinson
"Nightshift" - Commodores - Marvin (Gaye), Jackie (Wilson)
"Free Fallin'" - Tom Petty - crazy about Elvis

Thanks Steel Cranium and Wayne Edwards for the suggestion!
