Also, "I Write the Songs."
Which (at least, according to Wikipedia) was not about Barry Manilow or (although it was written by Beach Boys member Bruce Johnston) Brian Wilson, but about G-d.

Steve L.

Good addition, Walter. Thanks.

John Steele

Rodney Crowell's "Walk the Line (Revisited)," Tom Paxton's "Did You Hear John Hurt?" and Bill Monroe's "Uncle Pen."

Howard Evan Katz

Leader of the Band by Dan Fogelberg

Stay by Jackson Browne

Jazzman by Carole King

Superstar by The Carpenters

Steve L.

All good suggestions, John and Howard. Thanks.

Bill Pederson

Good choices.

Country music has a tradition of the "answer song", for example, Kitty Wells' It wasn't God that Made Honkey Tonk Angels" in answer to Hank Thompson's "The Wild Side of Life"

Also some other suggestions:

Crosby Stills & Nash, "Wasted on the Way"
Dylan, Mr Tambourine Man"
Byrds, So You Want to be a Rock & Roll Star
Simon & Garfunkle, "Homeward Bound"
Gordon Lightfoot, "Early Mornin' Rain"

Jack Belton

How about Rick Nelson Garden Party

Walter Effross

And, Guitar Man, by Bread.

David Rosenfeld

How about Dylan's Blind Willie McTell and Roberta Flack's Killing Me Softly
