Berlin Dancing In Berlin I wouldn't exactly call it a "vanity song". But it obviously mentions the city of Berlin Germany from which the band took its name (even though the band itself is not actually from there). Edward
Blue Tears Blue Tears From the band's eponymous 1990 debut album. Rest in peace, Gregg Fulkerson! Joey F.

Mr. Big Mr. Big This is actually a cover of a song by Free (from their 1970 album "Fire & Water"); Mr. Big the band covered it in 1993 for their album "Bump Ahead." Neither version was very popular overall. Joe
Jim Croce You Don't Mess Around With Jim Title track from his 1972 album. Floyd DeBarber

Buck Owens and the Buckaroos Buckaroo Instrumental country hit from 1965. Susan
Doris Day It's A Lovely Day Today Yeah, her last name appears in the title, so I figured it might count. Song was actually written by Irving Berlin circa 1950, for the musical "Call Me Madam." The first two recorded versions were performed by Perry Como and Doris Day, who each had single versions of it on the charts. Other artists have also performed it since then. Quyjibo
