#3 in my Favorite "Girl's Names" Songs series belongs to one of my all-time favorite band's, Sonic Youth. Their song, "Tunic (Song for Karen,) is highly worthy of the third slot in this countdown. Sonic Youth formed in New York in 1981. They are known for guitarist'sThurston Moore and Lee Renaldo's use of off-tune guitars (all the while, bassist and vocalist Kim Gordon and drummer Steve Shelly played it straight.) The band broke up in 2011 after the end of Moore and Gordon's marriage. From the band's major label debut, Goo, "Tunic (Song for Karen)" is Kim Gordon's Tribute to Karen Carpenter, told from CCarpenter's point of view. It was not a hit, not even released as a single. And yet it's Top 4 song from Goo. Enjoy!

All I know of Sonic Youth, was that raided Peter Frampton's cooler on The Simpsons!

Sonic Youth is another 80s hall of famer.

The CCarpenter's were great. In his own way, Richard Carpenter was a pop music genius.
