Female muses have been glorified in art both old ("O lady myn, that called art Cleo," wrote Chaucer) and new ("Wake up to your girl, for now let's call her Cleopatra," sang Frank Ocean). Guest musician Julian Velard takes popular songs that have a women's name in the title, and substitutes a man's name in its place. Can you name the original lady? After, Velard pays tribute to a famous chanteuse with a cover of "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry.
