Songs with Girls’ names

The internet kind of ruined this game by providing massive lists of songs with girls in the title, but a few stand out for me.

“Sara” by Fleetwood Mac

“Ballad of Jayne” by L.A. Guns

“Rosanna” by Toto

“Pamela” by Toto

“Layla” by Derek and the Dominoes

“Brandy” by Looking Glass

“Barbara Ann” by The Beach Boys

“Lola” by the Kinks

“Lorelei” by Styx

“Jessica” by the Allman Brothers

“Melissa” by the Allman Brothers

“Come on Eileen” by Dexy’s Midnight Runners

There are a bunch more I’m sure. Interesting that strikes me is that Zeppelin doesn’t have any songs named after girls. Second, most of the names are pretty non-standard. Where are the Rachels, Laurens, and Mollys, and Susannas? On the other hand, there are also a ton of songs with Jane in them that I didn’t list (“Jane says” “Jane” “Janie’s got a gun”). Kind of plain for the girls that rockers are getting jilted by…must be easy to rhyme or something.
