We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us a famous song they didn’t realize was about a celebrity. Here are some of their juicy responses:

“Something” was written by George Harrison while they were married. “Layla” was written by Eric Clapton after he fell in love with his best friend’s (George Harrison) wife. And finally, “Wonderful Tonight” was written by Eric Clapton after they got together. She was taking too long to get ready to go to a party.

Grohl wrote this song a year after Kurt Cobain died by suicide. He did not like Cobain’s wife, Courtney Love, and admitted in 2009 that the line “How could it be, I’m the only one who sees your rehearsed insanity?” was about her. But Love and Grohl showed a public display of affection and appeared to have made up at Nirvana’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.

“Colors” by Halsey was about her ex-boyfriend Matty Healy, the lead singer of the 1975.
