25 Women Who've Inspired Famous Pop Songs

Rosanna Arquette

Song She Inspired: Peter Gabriel - "In Your Eyes" (1986)
Highest Position on the Billboard Hot 100: 26

This is one of two songs that is often said to have been inspired by Rosanna Arquette, the other being Toto's Rosanna. Considering Gabriel and Arquette were living together at the time, there's a good chance the speculation is correct. Toto, on the other hand, have said that their tune wasn't about the actress, and that the fact she was dating keyboardist Steve Porcaro around the time it was written was just a coincidence.
