Glad to see modern songs ruined names like Amy and Jennifer. Of course, not as epic as songs like Lydia the tattooed lady, Queenie from the strip polka, or Minnie the moocher.

Peaceboy: 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.


Personally, I fell in love at the Copa...

Try having your fellow drunken firefighters singing it to you at the bar we all retired to after drunk softball games.

But yes, it does get old. Very, very, very old.

My best friend's name is Johnny and we love to sing at him all the different Johnny songs because it drives him crazy....there's the classics: Johnny Angel, Johnny B. Goode, Shooting Star (bad company), Johnny (Neil Young)...etc. There's a ton and we're always coming across new ones. Then there's all the songs that we've butchered to include his name (My Johnny lies over the ocean, for example) and then there's my personal favorites: "Degenerated" from the movie Airheads, and "Not Now John" by Pink Floyd...

With friends like us...

What a stupid "article". How the fark does this lame ass shiat get greenlit? Seriously, how did names like Shameka, Kesha, Shonda, Deronda, Tanesha, Sha'von, Yolanda, Sharona, Iesha, etc. get "ruined" if nobody named their kids that in the first farking place?

It's ok NOT to publish anything on your farking website if all you have to offer is weak ass shiat like this guys... THIS is the problem with the 24-hour news cycle, we keep getting bombarded by "lists". Lists of the 25 worst movies "of all time", followed tomorrow by a list of the 25 worst mutant plant movies"of all time", or the 25 worst songs to have playing while you cross the street heading west while the sun is rising behind you immediately after a rainstorm "of all time", or so on. It's like they have to put up these lists or a psycho somewhere will kill their mothers, it's the only explanation.

I kind of expected a half-assed list to include Polly by Nirvana. Or Ave Maria.

Eustacia Vye: 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.


Yup, same here. Between "Angie" and "Angie Baby", 1973 was a fun year. It also didn't help that I was a shy loner, and carried around a small transistor radio.

Have seen a few Yolandas and Shamekas , an Aisha, and a Tanesha or two. Even know a few Sharons.  ;-)  Not everyone has boring names like Mary or John, or dippy names like Braeden and Ryleigh.

As for it getting greenlit, well, this thread has over 100 comments, so they're doing something right.

Why not just call this list what it is? "A bunch of women's names in songs that I noticed". Why even pretend there's a point to it? How do these people keep their jobs?

why all the hate, lonely boy? torch songs are a genre. they have a time and a place. want a good laugh? one of the guys in 'Air Supply' appears at tattoo shows, he is major inked and a little badass!

Elton John's "Daniel."

If I thought I could get away with it I would punch Jennifer Lopez in the face. I come across some asshole at least once a month who thinks it is HILARIOUS to call me "Jenny from the block". Or tell me that they're not fooled by the rocks that I've got.
At the height of that song's popularity I heard it multiple times a week.

Although I do own a t-shirt that says 867-5309. It's surprising how many people genuinely miss the reference. That's usually a shirt I wear at home only.

But seriously, fark you J-Lo.

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...


OK, Louie Louie.

Also thought of Johnny B. Goode, which someone else has already mentioned.
