The selfie stick — those arm-extending gadgets that let people take more interesting photos of themselves — became quite the rage in 2014. But as we reported earlier this morning, a number of museums and cultural sites around the world have already banned the selfie stick in the interest of keeping visitors and priceless artworks safe.

The Palace of Versailles, Britain's National Gallery, the Smithsonian and the Art Institute of Chicago are all part of a growing list of places that have banned the use of selfie sticks.

But in the spirit of the selfie — some might call it introspective, others may call it egocentric — we started thinking about songs that are reflexive or inward-looking; that is, tunes about "me".

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, what songs with "me" or "I" in the title do you want to hear? Send us your requests.
