copyright question.

Can I use song titles in my book


She started off by asking, “When’s your birthday, Clare?”
Clare replied, “29 November 1974. I’m a Sagittarius.”
Charlene looked at the site and said, “‘Gonna Make You a Star,’ by David Essex.” She then asked Vicky for her birthday.

Ben Jones :

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.
