  • Saskia Hamilton was featured on the tenth track of the 2010 Ben Folds/Nick Hornby collaborative album Lonely Avenue as the subject of an eponymous song, written from the point of view of a teenage poetry fan whose attraction is purely based on her name. Hornby said that he "thought she had a fantastic name for her line of work."
