Music Monday

Well this week's topic is Songs named after girls. I was a little late coming up with this topic so I have not given it as much thought as I'd like. I realized that I generally like songs named after girls and I had a hard time thinking of songs for my worst list. But the show must still go on. So here are my 5 best and 1 bad songs named after girls.

The Good
1. Julia- The Beatles
I'm not a big fan of Michelle but I love Julia it's one of my favorite songs off the White Album

2. Brimful of Asha-Cornershop
I feel like a big dork because I've been a huge fan of this song ever since 1998 and I also think Ashawary Rai is the most beautiful woman in the world. I also knew this song was about a famous Indian Movie star but it took me until last week to put the to together.

3. Delilah-Tome Jones
Not a big fan of the add-libbed lyrics people add when Kareokeing but the original is great.

4. Rosa Parks-Outkast
Not much about Rosa Parks other than the title but she did sue them because the song tarnished her image.

5. Mandy-Barry Manilow
Are you happy now Fan-i-lows


The Bad
1. Gloria-Laura Branigan
I'm not sure if I love this song or hate it. I also have no idea what this song is about but it sounds like Gloria is in trouble.

How could you not mention Patti Smith's Gloria? Shame, shame, shame.

Actually I could name several good girl named songs....if I wasn't so swamped right now.

Thanks everyone. Yesterday when I got home I remembered Sara- Hall n' Oates. Then there is Melissa and Jessica by the Allmans.

Lefty- I'm so lame I don't know Patti's Gloria
