Maybe we're not done here... I should have come up with this sooner being the 60's rock Who fan - 'Athena' from their 1982 'It's Hard' album/cassette/CD...

Thank goodness someone remembered Diana by Paul Anka. But wouldn't it have been more fun to go from memory than Googling?

I didn't see Hooray for Hazel anywhere, though. And Sweet Jane by Lou Reed and The Cowboy Junkies (yeah, I know The Velvet Underground's version was mentioned but The Cowboy Junkies' version is soooooooo much better!!)

Default Boy Howdy (omage to Jack J.)

I bet this is the definitive list of songs with girl's names in it...

I bet there's not one more song written that applies.

I bet I would be wrong!

Challenge offered.

Just noticed...........but I've seen much older........esp. the other day.

Nonetheless..............here are two songs with female names:

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sFy5_kmEi4"]Jay & The Americans - Cara Mia - YouTube[/ame]

Cara Mia........from 1965

Also, our 2 year old daughter used to sing “Daisy”.......(give me your answer do, I’m half crazy over the love of you).....

She’d sing the entire song in the back seat of the car........”Daisy, Daisy”.......plus the Sesame Street album of songs.....

But Cara Mia........a beautiful song from “back in the day”..............

Also, has anyone mentioned "Sherry or Cherie Baby" by the Four Seasons?????????? Jerseyites will remember that one.............

NOT SURE WHY but hyperlink to Jay & The Americans - Cara Mia - YouTube hyperlink which shows on my screen and "email" post, will not show on TV's final post.
