We’re finishing up songs with a girl’s name as a the title tonight/today! You can find last week’s post here. Starting with “N” and ending with “Z” (I’m guessing it’s gonna be slim to no chance on “Z,” but we’ll give it a try!) So let’s get this name-check party started!
As mentioned last week, I used this page to find the titles. I had to add this one for obscure letters and this one for a really complete list of names.
“Nadine” by Chuck Berry
“Ondine” by the Dandy Warhols
This wasn’t what I was expecting. It’s an instrumental, a modern recording of a Ravel piece about a water nymph.
“Peggy Sue” by Buddy Holly
We’re gonna have to bend our rule about only the girl’s name in the title for this next one, but, hey… you’re getting a “Q” and that’s all that matters, right? Also, maybe there were two Queenies in her neighborhood; so they had to distinguish between regular Queenie and Little Queenie. At least that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. 😀
“Little Queenie” by Chuck Berry
“Roxanne” by Sting (live jazz version from 2001)
“Sara” by Starship
“Tracy” by the Cufflinks
“Ursula” (The Swansea Song) by Barclay James Harvest
“Valleri” by The Monkees, featuring Mike’s amazing guitar
Nearing the end, and a whole lotta rule-breaking here. But otherwise we’d have nothing…
“Tomorrow, Wendy” by Concrete Blonde
On a much lighter (instrumental) note…
“My Sister Xandra” by Emiel Van Egdom
If you need some funk in your life today, you might want to try “Yolanda,” by Bobby “Blue” Bland
“Zelda” by Pete Townsend
So there you have it! Has anyone recorded a song featuring your name in the title? If so, share it in the comments below! You might want to use the resources I linked above to find yours (though my isn’t there. And there is a song with my name as the title… No, Not gonna tell you what it is. Heh!)
