Featured Song Story *

Do you enjoy old Irish folk songs? How about “I’ll Take You Home Again, Kathleen”? A song covered by Slim Whitman in 1957, Elvis Presley in 1973, Bing Crosby, Johnny Cash, and even featured in a Star Trek episode when an inebriated Lieutenant Kevin Riley attempted to sing this beautiful “Irish ballad”. But guess what? It’s not an old Irish folk song! Surprisingly, I'll Take You Home Again Kathleen, was written in Plainfield, Indiana by an American composer, Thomas P. Westendorf in 1875, and first introduced to the public by a group of singers performing at the town hall in Plainfield, Indiana. The sheet music was first published in 1876 in Cincinnati, Ohio and it soon became one of the most popular songs in America!

 The top 40 songs with a
girl's name in the title

Top 40 songs named after girls, with a woman's name in the title: the UK top 40 song list. This list only includes songs of love and affection for that special girl, wife, mother, sister, friend, lover or wannabe lover. Without regard to genre (Rock, R&B, Country, Punk, Rap, etc) each of these songs became a chart topping hit; all but a few were top ten songs and many were number 1 hits in the UK! These love songs all have a woman's first name in the title and it is a song about her; not about a place, animal, thing, road, car or boat. Song titles only have first names, no last names, and none with multiple names. Here’s our UK list of the top 40 best love songs with a girl’s name in the title!

Girls Name Songs Blog

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 Ray Peterson in 1960 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.
