In the 19th century, circa 1830, an old Irish folk song called Irish Molly O was popular in America. An arrangement by Louis Berge was published in New York in 1865. Then in 1905, a new song with almost the same name was written by the very popular and successful song writing duo, Wm Jerome (Flannery) and Jean Schwartz. This American “Irish” song became very popular and it is this song, My Irish Molly O (or Molly-O, or Molly ‘O) that is most well-known today. Performances by The Flanagan Brothers and by Blanche Ring helped make it popular. The song has been covered by numerous others since then, like the Irish band, De Dannan, with Maura O’Connell as well as by Daniel O’Donnell, John McNicholl, and Celtic Thunder. It is an upbeat fun song and a great "Irish" pub sing-a-long song!

My thoughts and comments*
What is so special about a Girls Name Song? Who writes such a song and why? These are songs written about a friend, mother, sister, daughter, wife, girlfriend or any girl or woman we care about. Someone cared enough about this girl to write a song about her.

Is there anything more important than music written about a key person in our life; a person we admire, love, despise or cherish? Sure, some of these songs are just plain fun. But usually they are written about real people and real strong feelings. Listen to Steve Perry singing Oh Sherrie.

I first became interested in this kind of song as a young teenager. I remember feeling the unrequited love when Paul Anka sang about his yearning for Diana in 1957. And I remember the heart-break sadness of Ricky Valance in 1961 who sang Tell Laura I Love Her

And just like when we read a book, watch a movie, or listen to a story, these songs touch our hearts. We can easily relate to the words and feelings of the song; we feel the love. We smile, sigh, and cry right along with the singer.

I hope you enjoy this list of songs and please feel free to email me with suggestions for songs I missed or corrections to anything I post.
