What ruins things worse than a song ruins a woman's name? A Slideshow. A Slideshow ruins everything.

It would have had to improve to be pretty bad.

I'm too lazy to click on a slideshow, so I'll just assume "Rosie" is on the list.

Well, it could be some woman named Mandy....or some man named Andy...
 
2013-01-04 09:07:46 PM  
For the common names, I don't think anything is ruining... i.e. "Kim", most people don't think of the Eminem song.

But, for not as common names, yeah, first thing people think of if your name is "Sharona".....

I met a broad once named "Shandi", after a Kiss power ballad from 1980.

Either her parents were Australian, or some really devoted members of the Kiss Army.

I'm old enough to have been in junior high when Mandy came out and IIRC people weren't all that freaked out about it then - nobody knew him, it was his first hit and the cool kids hadn't yet deemed Barry Manilow forever uncool.  Then a short time later, KISS came out with "Beth" which is equally as wimpy a song, piano ballad with strings and all, but they mostly got a pass.  Maybe Barry should have worn clown makeup and kitty whiskers and platform shoes.  Maybe he does, I haven't seen him in a while.  And no, computer, I'm not going to add "Manilow" to spell check.

That was Janie, not Jamie.

Although Van Halen had Jamie crying for some reason... probably when she found out David Lee Roth had hairplugs.

Indeed it is. That was a hit song in 89/90. And if anything's a name ruiner, it's being associated with a girl who shoots her incest lovin rapist daddy.

/well, as much of a "name ruiner" as any of these songs are.
//Also, the Van Halen song may also have been Janie. But I don't think Van Halen's Janie was crying because her Daddy was an incest-loving rapist.

Agreed.  It came to mind for me.  As did Beth and Layla, neither of which are on this failure of a list.

Beth, I hear you ballin but I can't get in the door,
You changed the locks again, you miserable farking whore.
I'll wait a few more hours for the guy that you just blew
And I swear I'll tell him all about the coont you turned into.

I am so disappoint with you people.

1978 will tell us that Jamie's Cryin' because she should mean more than a one night stand.

Also, the name Gloria was much enhanced by Patti Smith and her smooth declarations.

Some of those were pretty fail. Half the names listed for "Freek a leek" were shiat to begin with. A shiatty hip hop song isn't going to ruin them any further. Half the rest of the slides were just songs that had a girls name in them, very few were major well known songs like Dirty Diana, Mandy, Jenny, Roxanne, Jolene, Hey there Delilah, Lola, etc.

List also fails for not including Layla.

I would just like to say that before that song came out, I was always "Lady Di." In the 5th grade, Dirty Diana came out and for about 5 years, it was inescapable. I farking hate that song so much. It's not even that great of a song!
