Mary by Supergrass...http://youtu.be/9DYKifSm9XM 8)
I got a girl and her name is mary
I like to shock her on a basis daily
I'd like to push her over into my dreams
I'd like to point out that her teeth are green..........

I can think up a few...how about you?....

@ Ophone- Rosamunde, man these people look happy (appear to be from another planet, but happy)
Rosanna, by Toto- I definitely recognize that one!

Here is the second pick that comes to my mind, Angie by the Rolling Stones

Hey I felt it this morning, really! I thought "Hmm... Maybe there'll be new topics this evening? But... why on earth am I thinking about that??!" Can't even remember when it was... must be my subconscious... :mrgreen:

Angela- I don't remember the artist(s)... just the tune and some snatches of the video, I think I was about 4 or 5 the last time I heard it... And I've never seen/heard it again though I often think about it! (don't know why by the way)

Jay Kay was interviewed on a music video show in Australia called Video Hits in 2010 (after the release of RDLS) and the host asked if he would like to request a song. He asked if it could be an old song, and he chose "Angie" by the Stones! This made me wonder if this song inspired "Angeline".
Damn, I tried to find the video of the interview, but Video Hits was cancelled last year and their website has disappeared. :( It was a great interview.

"Jolene" was also covered by the Rocker on the Voice last season! :wink:
Jack White is a great musician. And I think the White Stripes really made it big in Canada, eh?

"Angie" is a great song by the Stones.
"Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" & "Roxanne" are classics!

I don't really think so. I think they are, and always will be, a little underground. Only a chosen few can appreciate them...

@CosmicLea good choices! come to think of it I am surprised they didn't come to my mind I must see Yellow Submarine again haven't seen it since I was a wee one
Okay..lets go way back in time... to my favourite ska band's song Message to you Rudy by the Specials

Actually, as the story goes, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is technically not named after a woman! Have a look at the letters in the title in capitals - LSD, enough said!! :lol:

No, I haven't been able to find it on the internet either. :(
I'd love for you to read it. From what I remember, the things I didn't like were that in regard to being single, Jay said something about women always moaning (being annoying) though he did say he thought Australian women were great. I can't remember exactly what was said, but the way it was written made him sound a bit of a misogynist. And he spoke of having hit rock bottom professionally when he had to sing Cosmic Girl on a television show with an "amateur". I assume it referred to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KcXEku6J5Jk
I wonder if anyone on Jamirotalk.net would have the interview?

Sorry, I can't think of any great songs named after women at the moment! :wink:

@CosmicLea -thanks for trying! Yeah Jamirotalk probably do know where the interview!
Australian women don't moan too much! Maybe that's why Jay spent 10 days in Australia.
(but some men like women moaning!)
Maybe he is a misogynist and should switch to hip-hop! :lol:

And definitely heard Lucy in the sky w/diamonds is about LSD.
But Lucy is such a great name! My great-grandmother was named Lucia!

(sorry, can't think of any songs named after women!)

:lol: ahhh poor Jay just hasn't met the right one yet :( Or maybe Jazzhole is right and he seeks out all the nasty girls...and gets burned....hmm let me ponder that one..
