X is an American western folk ballad usually credited to Percy Montrose (1884), even though it's sometimes credited to Barker Bradford. The song is believed to have been based on another song called Down by the River Liv'd a Maiden by H. S. Thompson (1863). The words are those of a bereaved lover singing about his darling, the daughter of a miner in the 1849 California Gold Rush. He loses her in a drowning accident, though he consoles himself towards the end of the song with _______'s "little sister".
 Excerpts of the song can also be heard in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Kate Winslet's character, complains that people always make fun of her name because of this song. Also subtle emphasis is placed on the phrase, "you are lost and gone forever," to fit with the film's theme.
However we know this song thanks to Y, who is synonymous with this song. X and Y?

Answer: Oh my Darling,Clementine and Huckleberry Hound.

This person lends his name to X, which was coined by the Finns as "a drink to go with the food". Put full fundas on the origin of X. 

Answer:   Copy pasting from Wiki
In 1939 the Soviet Foreign Minister, Vyacheslav Molotov, claimed Russia was not dropping bombs on Finland, but merely airlifting food to starving Finns. The Finns soon dubbed the RRAB-3 cluster bomb "Molotov's bread basket", and named the improvised incendiary device that they used to counter Soviet tanks the "Molotov cocktail", as "a drink to go with the food".
