Feel free to swap my CB200 (its a model rather than a maker strictly speaking) for

Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers 'Dodge Veg-O-Matic

if that is one of the three you had in mind!

Mind you I have got no idea if Don McLean really meant the bike manufacturer in the song 'Vincent'. Fair play if he did but Mr McLean never struck me as the biker type.

OK, I'll give up Vincent - Don McLean for Richard Thompsons "Vincent Black Lightning 1952", if that helps.

Well, Alfa Romeo makes cars but Romeo was more into making babies. An alpha male perhaps.

I knew Richman's Dodge but I only post songs that I like. I think the most hilarious one on that list is 'Drive My Car'.

Nope, he was referring to Vincent van Gogh, the artist.

I can swap the lovely disco from Bran Van to P.E.'s 'Get the **** out of Dodge'
but I fear it's a city in NJ , no Kansas!

That doesn't matter. There is the name of a car manufacturer in his title. Not so for #6, 10 & 12. #10 doesn't count as the shortened version is Alfa, not Romeo. Kind of like it's a Chevy, not a Rolet.

Why doesn't someone pick a new subject for us?

Doesn't matter... as the instigator of the titles, I thought "Vincent" was great, one of the all-time greatest motorcycle brands, and my favourite. Alas they're far too rare and expensive for my meagre wallet. It seems there aren't as many brands mentioned in songs as I'd have thought, especially outside North America. Perhaps Europeans have less emphasis on cars/bikes and fewer iconic brands? I'm sure Jaguar is mentioned in a song title somewhere though. I thought of Prince's "Red Corvette" but that's a model, not a make.

Man, shows how out of touch I am. I was thinking of Vincent MPH kit cars, not bikes.
