Featured Song Review *

(reprise) The song, January, was written by David Paton, lead singer and co-founder of the Scottish pop-rock band Pilot. In an interview, David Paton explained the origin of his 1975 hit song. He described how one evening as his wife was reading a book featuring a lead female character named January, she said to David, “January is a nice name for a girl, don’t you think?” He started thinking about it along with a melody and soon wrote the song about a girl named January. The song was the biggest hit for Pilot, reaching number one on the UK Singles chart for three weeks and charted at number one in Australia as well. January only dipped into the top 40 list in the USA where Pilot was better known for their other hit pop song, Magic which charted at number 5 in the USA.

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.

Thanks,
DJD

Charity Support:  It’s been said that it takes a village to raise a child. I also think the village would be well served to ensure the health and well-being of the child’s mother and to assure a healthy birth so that the child has a better chance of reaching responsible adulthood. This we do, not just for the benefit of the child, but for the enrichment of the entire village. Happy, healthy, productive people benefit all of society, and it starts with a healthy childbirth and happy mother. djd
