women's names in songs

Recommended Posts

I wonder if I'm the only one who has noticed this, but it seems to me that almost all songs that use a girl's name, it's either Mary or Maria. There are some others out there, I know, and I'd like to find out what they are!!

Please post the song lyric that contains the name, the song title and the band - any name EXCEPT Mary or Maria. I'll start.

"Back Alley Sally, I can play your game." ~ Back Alley Sally, 38 Special

"Sara, you're the poet in my heart." ~ Sara, Fleetwood mac

I really love this rather obscure song from Golden Earring:

Candy’s going bad Golden Earring

Candy took the pearls

Got ahead of the girls

Got on top and found the secret entrance

Are you satisfied?

Through neon doors

Cross killing floors

She got sucked into a champagne desert

Are you satisfied?

Daddy said: I’ll break your bones

If you come home dressed in Peacock clothes

Mother said: quit the show

She didn’t want the neighbours to know

Candy had to quit the show

Well, Candy didn’t care

When she started her affair

With the studs and the mares of the night

Are you satisfied?

Teddy knows the rule

Of the underground school

He’s got Candy wrapped round his finger

Are you satisfied?

Candy is going bad - she’s got a room to let

Candy is going bad - got a pimp, named Ted

Candy is going bad - long greens where it’s at

Candy’s going bad - she’s got stars in her head

Daddy said: I’ll break your bones

If you don’t get your tricks of the phone

Mother said: quit the show

I don’t want the neighbours to know
