Enough of the maths clues (well partially!) - something more literary:

Romulus and Remus; Mowgli.

Hint 1: Graphics[{Circle[], Line@# & /@ {{{0, -1}, {0, -3}}, {{-1, -2}, {1, -2}}}}]
Hint 2: Previous answer partial answer to this Q.
Hint 3: Hint 1 is song title (one word).

How about

Woman by Wolfmother (Female symbol, Romulus and Remus and Mowgli were raised in the wild ('by wolves'))

An incorrect answer is:

"Raised by Wolves" by U2

My best explanation is that

Rome's legendary founders and Mowglie are "2" who were "raised by wolves."

I'm spending more time trying to figure out what the first clue is trying to tell us than I am with the puzzle itself.

    $\begingroup$ @martin That is good; I was hoping that there was something more to this. I think I'm drawing the graphic incorrectly; the syntax is foreign to me. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The graphic is a Venus/female symbol: a circle with a line extending below it and another line crossing that. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Zandar I initially ignored the order of the coordinates and I couldn't figure out whether or not to put the circle at the origin. $\endgroup$
