YMMV: Chris de Burgh
- Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: Some of his songs have debatable religious themes. Also, in a non-religious example, there is disagreement about who the subject of "Lady in Red" is.
- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: He's incredibly popular in Iran and has collaborated with Iran's "Aryan Band" . Some of his more recent work has a Middle Eastern flavour to it, presumably as a result.
