Benham Jones in for the vacationing Corny O'Connell. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Metropolitan Museum of Art which was incorporated in April 1870 and started a journey to becoming the largest art museum in the United States.

The Met is a right of passage for tourists and native New Yorkers alike, with an inexhaustible catalog of more than two million (!!!) works of art visited annually by more than six million people.

We honor the Met with the Question of the Day, asking you for your favorite songs that namecheck famous artists or works of art. Tell me your picks and I'll get to a set after 9 a.m.
