In honour of the ever so anticipating "Mike Boon Friday Five", I have opted to add my little contribution for the upcoming "Happy Love Day" My little listing is the Top Songs with a woman's name in the title. Although this is a near impossible to get the 10 definitive greatest songs of all time, but here it goes nonetheless.
1)AC DC - Whole Lotta Rosie. If there is a better song about about a woman, I'd like to hear it.
2)DEREK AND THE DOMINOES - Layla. Mr. Allman kicking butt in a excellent slide guitar effort.
3)THE BEATLES - Hey Jude. For Once, we don't get tired of Ringo and his legendary drumming skills.
4)THE ROLLING STONES - Sweet Virginia. Just a great jamming tune, from one of the best albums ever, EXILE ON MAIN STREET.
5)THE DOORS - Gloria. Originally covered by "THEM", the live version is mint. God knows what Jim was on that night, but my goodness it worked.
6)CSN - Suite: Judy Blue Eyes. Great harmonies make this lick a winner.
7)DEXY'S MIDNIGHT RUNNERS - Come On Eileen. Who says the list can't be composed of a one hit wonder?
8)BOSTON - Amanda. Here's a great tune by a band who's been working on their next album for nearly 20 years.
9) BOB DYLAN- Queen Jane Approximately. Now you talk about a killer album, here it is. Highway 61 revisited.
10)LEONARD COHEN - Suzanne. Something from the "Canadian version of Bob Dylan"
Now, of course, I did mention that it's so subjective to say this is the top ten etc. But I will add some honourable mentions to Visions of Johanna (Bob Dylan) Proud Mary (CCR, Ike and Tina) Nancy (Frank Sinatra) Mary Mary (Run DMC) Lola (The Kinks). Long Live Happy Love Day!
That's your top ten and nothing I say can change that. Here are my top ten songs with a woman's name in the title...excluding any of the tunes you've already mentioned.
- "Cochise" by Audioslave
- "Crazy Mary" by Pearl Jam
- "Cordelia" by The Tragically Hip
