A few that come quickly to mind are: "You're The Top" by Cole Porter. The song mentions Mickey Mouse, Garbo, Jimmy Durante, Fred Astaire, and Milton Berle. Porter also references fellow songwriters Vincent Youmans and Irving Berlin. Astaire is also mentioned in Rodgers and Hart's "Up On Your Toes", and Greta Garbo is mentioned in Bunny Berigan's big hit "I Can't Get Started". In "The Poor Little Rich Girl", Shirley Temple sings a song called "But Definitely". Part of the song includes the lines " When you are crooning the blue of the day, and whistling the gold of the dawn, Bing, Bing, are you my fav'rite, you know that you are, but definitely!". And of course, one of Roy Rogers last recordings is the song "Hoppy, Gene, and Me."
