Perhaps there should be separate question for each name you can think of with multiple songs, or separate for male and female. Currently I am trying to find song titles or songs with the girls name Lisa in it. Can anyone think of any? My Lisa - Bay City Rollers [mid 70's] Lisa - 3rd Strike Don't Let's Talk About Lisa - Lonestar I'm Not Lisa - Jesse Colter [early 70's] Lisa Listen to Me - Blood Sweat and Tears I know there are other names many many names in songs, Beth - Kiss She Thinks His Name was John - Rebe McIntire Gloria - Laura Branigan Layla -

I know what you mean I actually realized I had several songs with the same name, and so began to wonder, what names were used, which names were most common in songs or most popular etc. As for Johnny B Good it is the Chuck Berry classic that has been sung by many of course by Chuck Berry, as well as Elvis, someone named Ms Lisa and I am sure countless otherI liked the song list since there were some I am not familiar with. Thanks.

I recently went to look up songs, by name, and found so many that I was surprised, I wondered how many people noticed this trend with out even realizing they knew it. I forgot about some of the songs you mentioned, I thought about checking to see if I could get lists by specific names see what names may be the most commonly used in songs, any ideas as to what names you may see most often in song?

hmmm... Well I know lots of songs but I'm not sure I know all the artists who sang them. Stan- Eminem Valerie- I don't remember the artist, but everytime I heard that song on the radio, I would get paid that day, so I made the connection, Valerie=salary. Billy Jean- Michael Jackson (that was easy) Can't think of any more, at least not just yet.
