3) Vera Lynn
4) Prince Phillip
5) Buzz Aldrin
6) William Shatner
7) John McCririck
8) Kirk Douglas

I removed Kanye West and Steve Martin, so they might want to revisit their life insurance coverage. And make the fuck sure someone knows their passwords.....

Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn?
She's 101 years old, and those lyrics were written 40 years ago.

I met her when I was a teen. A radio/TV station in Hartford CT, loaned interest free money to teens so they could buy livestock for 4-H participation, and the money didn't have to be paid back until the critter was sold. Anyway, every summer they had a picnic/BBQ for all the kids borrowing money and their families, on top of a mountain where the broadcast antennae were located.
Along with the food was live entertainment, that year including Vera Lynn. Then they would do several interviews with each entertainer for various news and entertainment shows on their stations. At each interview they would randomly pick a half dozen of the kids to be included so they could remind the listeners/viewers of the public service (good deed) they were doing.

Some sunny day?
Vera, Vera
What has become of you?
Does anybody else in here
Feel the way I do?"

Vera, from Pink Floyd's 'The Wall'

other than that, I have no idea who she is
