Literary allusions in songs

|Some modern songs that at have lyrics that allude to novels, plays, movies, or anything!
The Cure has a ton, but i need more.
Even movies with themes or lines that are allusions would work too!

|Suede - Obsessions refers to Camus and Brett Easton Ellis.
Deep Blue Something - Breakfast at Tiffany's references the film.
It's really hard to find songs that reference books. I guess reading just isn't cool these days...
Maximo Park have a song called Russian Literature, doesn't explicitly mention any books but I presume it's a Russian Literature class.

|u can probably find a lot here (wikipedia list of songs that retell works of literature).
otherwise, off the top of my head, the Blink 182 "I miss you" song features a reference to Jack and Sally from the Tim Burton movie "Nightmare before xmas".
