    I guess I'm nit picking here, but very few of these songs are famous or even close.

    Mitchell again. She inspired a lot of them, including "Going to California" by Zeppelin, according to Percy Plant.

    "Carrie Anne" by the Hollies was about (or at least inspired by) Marianne Faithfull. I believe Graham Nash has said he just changed the name because he was a bit shy about it.

    Patti D'Arbanville... ok, not exactly a household name, but fairly well-known actress. Plus I love this song, so there.
