Yer Blues . You've got it, @Jolly Jimmy.

 

The lyric you quoted is relevant, and there are some other clues:

* The 'fame' reference was mentioned by @Ron Nasty as the song Fame, co-written by David Bowie, John Lennon and Carlos Alomar.  Fame was a US number 1 in 1975 for David Bowie.  Bowie's real name was Jones, and one of his personas was 'The Thin White Duke'.

"Just like Dylan's Mr. Jones"

Ballad of a Thin Man

 

* The pictured lunar module is the Apollo 11 module, which was named 'Eagle'.  ("The Eagle has landed.")

"The eagle picks my eye"

 

* The general dark moonscene is symbolic of loneliness.

"Yes, I'm lonely
Want to die"

OMG, I didn't expect that!

I don't play as often as I use to.  My creative muse is gone.  But I do have one picture.  This one might be easy.

@vonbontee is correct!  First guess!

 

Yup, that was an easy one.  I was trying to find a picture where it was not obviously a toy car.  That didn't work.

 

For research purposes, none of the Matchbox cars in my collection could hold all my clothes.  Not even the giant ones or those with working doors and a trunk.

 

The jury is still out on Hot Wheels.

 

Take it away, Von!

...sorry for lack of feedback, all...phone was overheating. My phone, not screen legend Barbara Stanwyck's!

All good guesses but wrong.
