DiMaggio

The greatest line every written in literature contains a reference to Joe DiMaggio:

"'I would like to take the great DiMaggio fishing,' the old man said. 'They say his father was a fisherman. Maybe he was as poor as we are and would understand.'" - Ernest Hemingway in The Old Man and the Sea

The greatest line every written in music contains a reference to Joe DiMaggio:

"Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio, our nation turns its lonely eyes to you. What's that you say, Mrs. Robinson? Joltin' Joe has left and gone away." - Paul Simon in Mrs. Robinson
