75. Clair - Gilbert O'Sullivan
.

Whoopsy, Daisy. :) My apologies for missing Clair in the # 20 spot and thanks for adding "Wendy" to properly fill the #75 slot. The list is going strong and i reckon it's easy to overlook a great song that has been mentioned already. I'll be a bit more careful from now on.

A job well done that is still in progress!

Sister Sadie is one word too many. The title must be just the woman's name. :)

Sister Sadie is one word too many but Rita May isn't?

Interesting. :)

Incidentally, a good friend of mine who is female, middle name is "Sister."

Sorry Keith. :P Whether we debate whether 'sister' is allowable or not, it still wasn't a U.S. Charted Hit.

Sister Sadie is one word too many but Rita May isn't?

No, because both Rita and May are a woman's name. If you look at the list of songs we've all come up with already, there's more than a few songs with more than one word in the title, but the entire song title is still a woman's name. Like Maggie May, Carrie Anne, Jennifer Juniper, and Peggy Sue.

"Sister" isn't a name, even if you do know someone who has it as a middle name. I know a woman whose parents named her Moonflower. That doesn't mean Moonflower is a woman's name. It's two nouns stuck together.
