Name the Character in the Song

Every good story needs a memorable character, and some of the best stories are told through songs. Anthony's movin' out. Billie Jean wasn't MJ's lover. Jude can take a sad song and make it better. And look out, Janie's got a gun. How many more characters can you remember?
