    Songs Named After a Girl

    On "The Family Guy", one of the characters quickly reeled off twenty songs that are named after a girl. It went too quickly for me to catch them all, but I bet there are hundreds of songs like that out there. Anyone have a song title to contribute?

    I'll go with "Tracy" by the Cufflinks, released in 1969 because, well, my name is Tracy

    PS Is it true that Tracy is a chav name in Britain???

    Paul wrote and sang "Michelle" one of my favorite Beatles songs. Even though the writing credits say Lennon/McCartney they mostly wrote separately. John's favorite Beatles song was "Here, There and Everywhere" written completely by Paul.

    How about Julia by John Lennon, I love that song. I have read it was about his Mother.

    Also Brandy by Looking Glass? I think that is the group's name.

    Allman Brother Sweet Melissa

    and

    Neil Diamond's Sweet Caroline

    For some reason those 2 are linked in my head, I guess since they both have the word "Sweet" in the title.

    I love that song Amanda by Boston and I always forget about it. It is like one of those soft hits that sneak up on you and all of a sudden you remember you really like it LOL

    Alison and Velouria by the Pixies - even though I don't think either is really about a woman. They are both named women's names.
