Ways to get a love song written about you:

1. Date a rock star

2. Be so incredibly alluring that you never have to even meet the person who writes it (Marilyn Monroe died over two decades before Def Leppard released "Photograph," leading to the conclusion that we could all unknowingly have love songs written about us—exciting!)

3. Have one as your dad

As you enjoy the touching slideshow above, here's lyrical proof that Billy Ray was not, in fact, ready for Destiny Hope to transition into just being Miley. Because guitar-playing heartthrob dads are still dads nonetheless.

    Is there a book of RHCP and their kids I can buy? Because their pictures are the cutest!

    Makes me think of daddy! Nothing like being a Rocker Dad's daughter. Greetings from Mexico!

    The baby with Paul McCartney has to be his daughter Mary. That's from the back cover of his solo album McCartney, which was released in 1969 or 70, and Stella wasn't born until 1971.

      you are correct.

    Paul and Stella McCartney have always been so cute! :-)

    I don't think number 11 is actually Dylan's son, cuz it looks like that's 1964/65 Dylan in that pic (look at pics by Daniel Kramer from around that time). Dylan didn't have any children at that time.Jesse was born in 1966 but Jesse is the kid in number 10 and it's obviously not the same child.

    I think it's awesome that you guys included Zappa and his family! Supposedly the song "Valley Girl" was a gift of sorts to Moon Unit because he spent so much time in the studio and not with his family, so he brought her in to make a song. My dad played so many of his songs for me growing up that I had no idea he's fairly unknown to my generation!

Dearest ITG Reader,
