Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Song titles would generally not have any copyright restrictions because they would not be long or original enough to qualify. They would usually just be a word or few words that make up a phrase that can be used in everyday language and certainly would lack the originality of the full song (musically or lyrically) to be afforded copyright protection. So to simply mention a song's name or the artist's name in a book is not going to breach any copyright laws.
Many thanks Ben
