I had always thought the Toto song "Rosanna" was about Rosanna Arquette, but a quick Google search revealed that is not in fact true:

Ray Davies loved his sisters! "Come Dancing"was a tribute to his sister Rene. Hers is a sad story:

Yes, and he had more sisters too, a total of six!

This is from Argentina, the song "Muchacha ojos de papel" ("Paper eyes girl") by Almendra, which is a colorful ballad about "Flaco" Spinetta's first girlfriend. Spinetta was an Argentinian rock legend and the leader of the late-60's band Almendra.
