Songs By Artists With Royalty-Inspired Names, Vol. 1: Kings

I'm starting the New Year off with a brand-new series, lucky you! This set and the two posts that will follow it feature songs by artists whose names (given or invented) have the words "King(s)", "Queen(s)", "Prince", or "Princess" somewhere in them. Since there were far more "King" artists than any of the others, they will comprise the entirety of the first two posts. All the others will share space in Vol. 3. Ready, set, enjoy!  ~  JH
