Songs that mention hanging out with other musical artists

And I was at a party hanging out with Mos Def.
Nobody else was dancing so I danced with Mos Def.
(I danced with Mos Def. I danced with Mos Def.)

WE DID AN AWESOME DANCE. WE HAD AN AWESOME TIME.
WE STARTED MAKING OUT, BUT THEN SOME PIZZA ARRIVED –

Well, Daft Punk is playing at my house, my house

Let me say, “Good morning”, my friend
About last night, I don’t know how it ended
I can’t find my phone and I can’t find my shoes
But nothing beats being in a party with you

(I guess technically it’s not in the lyrics but this is obviously about hanging out with Louis Cole, and Louis Cole’s section is about hanging out with Thundercat)

also apparently all i do is make galaxy oddity threads now, even about music. add your own examples

Does it count as hanging out if they don’t like them?

Somewhat mythologised. I think most doubt Dylan ever had an proper opportunity to meet Elvis in the way that is recalled in the song.

Remember one night I went to Erykah Badu house
She made tea for me
We talked about love and what life could really be for me
She said, “When that shit is real, you just know”

Yeah, Tim*, I heard your album and it’s better than good
When we get off tour I think we should
Hang and black out together
'Cause I been feeling sentimental for days gone by
All the summers singing, drinking, laughin
Wasting our time
Remember all the songs and the way we smiled
In those basements made of music

* Kasher, of Cursive

From station to station
Back to Düsseldorf City
Meet Iggy Pop and David Bowie

Standing in the dust next to an idling bus
With Skrillex inside and the sound of subwoofers in the distance
I had stayed up til three
Talking to Weyes Blood and Father John Misty
About songwriting in the backstage bungalows
Eating fruit and jumping on the bed like lost children
Exploding across the earth in a self-indulgent all-consuming
Wreck of ideas that blot out the stars
To be still alive felt so absurd

The mention of skrillex reminds of this asap ferg song which mentions a few people but most notably lauryn hill

I spoke to Lauryn last night, man, she still got it
She performed Ready Or Not, the whole set was rocking
Skrillex brought me out before her set, I did Shabba
She said “I watched the whole thing, Ferg, your shit was proper”
Damn, Lauryn was watching my show?
