    Motown property songs, just for fun

    I was thinking that Diana Ross has three songs concerning property:

    My Place
    It's My House
    This House

    The Four Tops have:

    7 Rooms Of Gloom
    Macarthur Park

    R Dean Taylor has:

    There's A Ghost In My House

    Just for some fun, can you name any more songs?
