Speaking of Saint Dominic, how about Van Morrison's "Saint Dominic's Preview"?

Wow! Did not know about this - I will have to rack my brain. Since she had a birthday this week, how about the hit single by Jeanne-Paule Marie "Jeannine" Deckers, better known as Sœur Sourire and often credited as The Singing Nun in English-speaking countries: "Dominique". Her song about the founder of her order, Saint Dominic?

Born To Run: Springsteen (the highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive). A great image in a song filled with great images.
