Top Ten Songs With a Person's Name in the Title

PetSounds

The Top Ten

1 Layla - Derek and the Dominoes

Very good song, but after the guitar part it's always disappointing

Patti Boyd must have ben quite a woman. Two of the greatest love songs of all time were written about her, Eric Clapton's Layla and George Harrison's Something. - PetSounds

2 Angie - The Rolling Stones Angie - The Rolling Stones

One of the all time great classical songs. Should be in the top three.

3 Vincent - Don McLean Vincent - Don McLean

Don't know why this song was ranked so far down on the list. It was written as a tribute to Vincent Van Gogh with the opening line Starry, Starry Night dedicated to his painting 'The Starry Night'. One of the great classical songs.
