Best Songs with a Female Name in the Title


The Top Ten

1 Layla - Derek & The Dominos

Layla, Lucy in the sky, and Sweet Melissa b the Allman brothers are by far the most beautiful creative, poignant and most imaginative songs every written with a women's name in the title. No other song even comes close.

Visions of Johanna is a work of art deserving to rank with those. - Billyv

I think I speak for everyone when I say that there are no Michael Jackson ones here.

Why not?

There's Billie Jean and Dirty Diana

So now I had to go and add them and now they are at the bottom.

So if you are a Michael Jackson fan, go to the bottom and vote for Billie Jean or Dirty Diana please - Shamo24

2 Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - The Beatles


3 Visions of Johanna - Bob Dylan
4 Whole Lotta Rosie - AC/DC
5 Suzanne - Leonard Cohen
6 Angie - The Rolling Stones
7 April - Deep Purple

Yes, I have a friend called that. - waldo

8 Gloria - Patti Smith

Why is this only on #8

9 My Sharona - The Knack
10 Proud Mary - Ike & Tina Turner

The Contenders

11 Proud Mary - Ike & Tina Turner
12 Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters - Elton John
13 Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts - Bob Dylan
14 Lady Jane - Rolling Stones
15 Iris - The Goo-Goo Dolls
16 Why Didn't Rosemary? - Deep Purple
17 Rosanna - Toto

I'd actually pick Lea - Toto, but I don't think anyone else would vote for it, but I guess Rosanna is fine as well.

18 Roxanne - The Police
19 Is That You, Melissa - Mercyful Fate
20 Ruby Tuesday - The Rolling Stones
21 Sara - Fleetwood Mac
22 Tina - Frank Sinatra

I had to add it or it would NEVER be added. It's such a sweet, sentimental song. It's hard to believe such a song is hardly ever mentioned. - Britgirl

23 Ah! Leah! - Donnie Iris

Some heavy hitting songs here, but for my 2 cents, this'll give them a run for the money. - Ned964

24 Sweet Melissa - Allman Brothers Band

This is a rather lovely song. I like very much. - Britgirl

25 Bette Davis Eyes - Kim Carnes
26 See Emily Play - David Bowie
27 Cross Eyed Mary - Jethro Tull
28 Proud Mary - Creedence Clearwater Revival
29 Peg - Steely Dan & Tom Scott
30 Brandy - Looking Glass

Another good one - Ned964

31 Debbie Gibson Is Pregnant With My Two Headed Love Child - Mojo Nixon

Just added as a joke. The group is a satirical, kinda Rock a Billy band. Saw them once, it was a lot of fun - Ned964

32 Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond

Could go on all night. - Ned964

33 Stuck in a Closet with Vanna White - Weird Al Yankovic
34 Barbra Streisand - Duck Sauce
