Madonna's hit song "Vogue" just got a little more sentimental.

The 1990 classic name-drops 16 huge Hollywood icons, but it appears Lauren Bacall was the last living star on the list before she died this week.

Greta Garbo passed away just a month after the release of "Vogue," while others on the list had already been dead (James Dean, Marilyn Monroe).

This trivia tidbit was called out by Twitter user Marci Robin (and noted by Slate) who wrote: "Upon news of Lauren Bacall's death, my friend Beth informed me, 'Everyone name-dropped in Madonna's 'Vogue' is now gone.' Holy sh**."

Here's the full list of late Hollywood greats mentioned in the song:
