List Rules Songs must have the name Bob in the title. Multiple renditions of the same song are ok when relevant.

Songs with a person's name in the title are quite common, but for this list we're only ranking the best songs about people named Bob or Robert. Do you have a favorite Bob song? We want you to vote for your favorite songs about Bob, whether it's a country song about someone named Robert, a Bob rock song, or anything in between. You can even add a song to the list if it's not already here, as long as it's a song with Bob in the title or lyrics.

Some of the songs featured below include Me & Bobby McGee by Janis Joplin, Dr. Robert by The Beatles, and Bobby Jean by Bruce Springsteen. Vote up your favorites to help them move higher on the list, and downvote any Bob songs that you have heard and don't like.
