    Bette Davis (eyes)
    If my memory serves me well I recall that in Germany Mona Lisa appeared every now and then in "Schlager"-songs.

    Jenny Boyd

    While we're on the topic of Patty Boyd, her sister also inspired a song.



    Song She Inspired: Donavan - "Jennifer Juniper" (1968)
    Highest Position on the Billboard Hot 100: 26

    Those alluring Boyd girls. Two years before her older sister Pattie became the subject of "Layla," Jenny inspired this much sunnier Donavan tune. Donavan was always a much bigger deal in his native Britain, where "Jennifer Juniper" went to no. 5. Jenny Boyd went on to marry Mick Fleetwood (of Fleetwood Mac) and Ian Wallace (of King Crimson).

    I always thought his Yoko obsession was kinda weird but this is such a good song along with "Oh Yoko!".
