    Rosanna Arquette...

    Arquette was married when she was 19 to director/composer Tony Greco; they divorced in October 1980. (Some sources suggest that she might have been briefly married to an unknown individual once before, as well. [3]) She dated Steve Porcaro, member of the rock band Toto. Her 1986 marriage to composer James Newton Howard ended in the same way. The reconciliation with an old love of Arquette, English pop and rock star Peter Gabriel, proved also to be impossible.

    Her relationships with musicians were the inspiration for two popular hits of the 1980s:

    * "Rosanna," a Top-40 hit in 1982 (although the songwriter was not Parcaro, but another Toto band member);

    * "In Your Eyes," from Gabriel's album So, a Top-40 hit in 1987.

    Dude. I don't know. I mean, it doesn't take all that much to inspire a guy to write a song about you. Make him some fried taters and let him rub your curves. That's it. Seriously.
