Day 21: A favorite song with a person’s name in the title.

I never realized how many songs I like fit into this category. Considering what’s going on in my life right now, I should probably go with Rod Stewart’s Maggie May or Simon & Garfunkel’s Mrs. Robinson, but instead I’m putting Angie by The Rolling Stones at the top of the list. Next is Bobbie Gentry’s Ode to Billie Joe, one of the greatest songs ever. Other favorites include:

Speaking of Brandon Boyd, he’s also been known to sing a few bars of Billie Jean now and then, and he’s been quoted as saying his favorite song ever is Leonard Cohen’s Suzanne. I never loved it, but for him, and because it’s pretty, I’ll offer up the Judy Collins version. Speaking of Judy Collins, there’s a song about her called Suite: Judy Blue Eyes by Crosby, Stills & Nash. There are lots of songs with the name Ruby in the title, so I’ll only mention a few: Ruby by The Kaiser Chiefs, Ruby Soho by Rancid, and Rubylove by Cat Stevens. I also have to include a few Jenny songs (since that’s my real name), and there are several, the classic of all time being Jenny Jenny by Tommy Tutone. There’s also Jenny by Walk the Moon, Jenny Was a Friend of Mine by The Killers, and Jennifer Juniper by Donovan. And finally, since I named my cat after it, here’s Kiwi by Maroon 5.

Jonathan Edwards - Sometimes

Feeling a bit nostalgic today. The first of several times I saw this guy perform live was in a bar in New Haven when I was about 15. The only time I ever lied to my parents about where I was going. Technically, I was too young to go into a bar, but listening to this song, and this voice, even my parents would have to agree that the worst thing that could possibly have happened to me is that I might have drowned in honey.
