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

Think Van Morrison could claim that over Patti.

Peggy Sue by Buddy Holly is a damn good song. Also glad that Donna by Ritchie Valens isn't on that list as well.

I didn't even know about the Rolling Stones "Amanda" song. I was named after the Waylon Jennings' song and I always had the Boston song sang to me by well meaning idiots.

Di Atribe: 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!


You'll always be Lady Di of the Romo Di's to me.

My name is on that list. People sure do love to sing to me when they find out my name.
 
2013-01-04 11:21:46 PM
Also, as a girl with a song-name myself, I can attest that at every family wedding or celebration of any kind there's a drunk uncle or three who sing at me thinking they sound/look like Rod Stewart. They don't. Not even as he looks now never mind in 1972.

What guy's names have been ruined by songs? All I can think of:

Jeremy (Pearl Jam)
Ben (Michael Jackson)

Don't think any song has tried to besmirch my first name yet.

My name is either associated with a possessed car or a song by siouxsie and the banshees, as far as I know.

Get real, nothing rhymes with CRAIG.

I'd argue none of these are well known enough or universal enough compared to the one's I posted or the one's I imagine I'd see if I RTFA. Also, 'Sue' & 'Lola' as guys is kinda cheating the spirit of things...

One of its many saving graces (although plague and vague do bely that somewhat)

Not heard that one, and I like some Badu.
 
2013-01-04 11:50:46 PM
I haven't heard of the majority of those songs, but the list fails w/o "Big Legged Emma". And don't forget Kenny's whores "Lucille" and "Ruby". Cheating on your war wounded husband is pretty low.

If they're going to put "Macarena" on there, where is "Sussuido"?

You in that dress, my thoughts I confess
Which are dirty
Aah, come on Eileen


As someone named Eileen I ask the same question.

Also Amanda is not on there or Lucille

In my experience as an Angie, I usually get the Rolling Stones version sung to me upon a first meeting. There have been a few times where guys have tried out Helen Reddy's Angie Baby on me, which is creepy. Because even tho I am a special lady, I don't live in a world of make believe.
