From the advent of popular music, crooners, rockers, rappers and country music stars have used a girl's name in their songs. Many of the biggest bands in music history have done this. Several of The Beatles biggest songs have used a girl's name in its title. "Eleanor Rigby," "Dear Prudence" and "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" are three examples of Beatles songs that contain a girl's name. The same goes for their counterpart in the Rolling Stones.
