Given the current state of global affairs, this one feels pretty much obligatory:
(warning, recorded in the 60s, so some language that is "dated" at best)

Don't think there'd be a problem with it.

But if the name in particular is important to you, then you're probably referring to a real person. 

And if a specific real person is identifiable from the lyrics of the song, and they're not a "public figure" of some kind, there could be repercussions.  At least, in America there could.

So has someone whose name is Aspen done something noteworthy, heinous, glorious, stupid, and/or hilarious?

I was looking at old posts of mine here, being with Covid for the third time, and I had a thought: Lily Allen (the singer) and Alphie Allen (who played Theon Greyjoy on GoT), her brother. If they had a fallout, how would it play out? She has a song, "Alphie", that paints him in a negative perspective. He seems to have taken it in good cheer.

EDIT: Seriously, even with vaccination (which does not seem to be very popular around here (And I came to my hometown to escape from covid!)), new variants seems to keep coming here.

Most recently I "found" (mostly thanks to Bandcamp algorithms) Julieta Eugenio, an Argentinian saxophonist relocated in New York. In most of the YT material she is playing jazz standards (nothing wrong with that), but she leads a new trio, and their first album (with a mixture of her own compositions and standards) just came out.

This one was chilling (along with the “Volk” album in general) when released, but has gotten so much more so with current events:

'80s Goth band from Leeds. Ideas? We were making a playlist with my sister-in-law and my brother half an hour ago, and I could not remember.

Sisters of Mercy.

Edit:

This one is sadly topical again.
